It has been almost a year since the tragic and unexpected death of Nipsey Hussle, and while we as fans lean to each other for comfort in remembering him, his family stands strong.
Big brother Samiel, born three years before Nip, Samiel, affectionately known as Blacc Sam, he always looked out for his younger brother and sister, Sam, and looked after his niece and nephews and other family members.
On this day, we celebrate a man who stood by his brother’s side, even after his death. Taking control of his estate as the administrator, pushing the “Hussle & Motivate” clothing line through Puma, to a documentary with Ava Duvernay through Netflix. As evident as it is in his music, Nipsey had nothing but the utmost respect for Blacc Sam, from shout-outs in his music to working side by side with him.
