That’s why Nipsey Hussle supported Texas Tech during Elite 8. As the NBA world mourned Nipsey’s loss during the week, many personal stories told of his work in the community and what his music meant for the players and their careers. After Nipsey Hussle’s death, “him”‘s presence in the world of music and sport was an important event. For example, the day before the day he was shot dead in front of his marathon clothing store in Los Angeles, Nipsey was in the square to celebrate Texas Tech’s victory in the Elite Eight. And this link has certainly extended to the world of college basketball, especially Bobby and Brandone Francis, who will play in the Final Four for Texas Tech next Saturday. Nipsey was a close friend of a coach’s father who invited Nipsey to the game and left him tickets.
