Left to mourn his passing are friends, family, and millions of fans. Celebrities such as Nas, Issa Rae, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Kevin Hart, Rihanna, Snoop Dogg, Drake and more quickly took to their social media accounts to express their condolences.

Nas is the latest artist to accompany his condolences with a heart-felt letter to fans, in honor of Nipsey’s legacy:

“We are at a great loss today. This hurts. Straight to the point. It’s dangerous to be an MC. Dangerous to be a b-ball player. It’s dangerous to have money. Dangerous To Be A Black Man. So much hatred. We live like our brothers and sisters in third world countries live. Right in America. Decisions we make about our own life be based on decisions cuz we might not live. Its so deep rooted. It’s not a easy fix. Hard to fix anything when kids are still living in poverty.

I ain’t shutting up though, Nipsey is a True voice. He will never be silenced. He still is A stand up General for the People who never left his people. He is Loved by the people. Prayers for his family. Let’s keep pushing Truth for The Man. Love You King Nipsey Hussle/ Ermias Asghedom Respectfully, Nasir Jones”
