Rapper Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed on Sunday, March 31 outside of his clothing store in Los Angeles, California. The rapper was 33 years old. The Crenshaw-native was gunned down in broad daylight while two other victims were transported to the hospital.
While reports state a gunman open-fired on Nipsey, the Internet is convinced that there could be a much darker truth.
Cue the conspiracy theories.
Many seem to believe that the rapper was killed due to his work on an upcoming documentary based on herbal healer Dr. Sebi.
Dr. Sebi, whose real name was Alfredo Darrington Bowman, believed that all diseases could be cured with natural healing and he had even claimed to have the cure for AIDs before a mysterious death that conspiracy theorists link to the US government and US Medical Corporations.
So is Nipsey Hussle now part of this big government conspiracy to keep the truth about an AIDs cure silent?
“This isn’t a coincidence! Left Eye from TLC died in a car ‘accident’ after trying to bring Dr. Sebi’s name to light and now nipsey randomly gets shot 6 times in his own hood at his own store? Stay f*cking woke,” one Twitter user wrote.
Another added: “Nipsey Hussle been walking down Slauson all his life. Soon as it’s out in the world that he’s gonna be producing a documentary on Dr. Sebi he’s fatally shot? I didn’t believe them when they said this was gonna happen.”
Nipsey had also previously rapped about Dr. Sebi:
“They killed Dr Sebi he was teaching health. I f*ck with Rick Ross cause he’s teaching wealth. I dropped out of school, Imma teach myself. Made my first mil on my own, I don’t need your help.”
So where do you stand on the conspiracy theory? Did Nipsey Hussle get murdered by someone connected to the government for his documentary on Dr. Sebi or is that just another wild conspiracy theory in the hip hop world? Sound off in the comments section below.
