Nipsey Hussle, also known as Nipsey Hu$$le and Ermias Joseph Asghedom, was an American rapper, songwriter, entrepreneur, and community activist.

His father, Dawit Asghedom, is Eritrean, and left the country during the Eritrean War of Independence. His mother, Angelique Kathleen (Boutte), is a black American, of African-American and Louisiana Creole background. He visited Eritrea with his family.

He had two children, including a son with his partner, actress and model Lauren London.

Nipsey had said:

I was raised in L.A. by my mom, you know my mom’s family is black American. I always knew my heritage from my dad [Eritrean] but I never met my family. My dad was the only one in America – everybody else was back home. So when I went out there it educated me to the other side.

Nipsey’s maternal grandfather is Joseph Leo Boutte, Jr. (the son of Leo Paul Boutté and Myrtle Emily Moret). Nipsey’s great-grandfather Leo was the son of Leo Boutté and Pearl Simmons. Myrtle was the daughter of Walter Henry Moret and Edna Lucille Bercy.

Nipsey’s maternal grandmother is Margaret Mary Green (the daughter of John Wesley Green and Augustine E. Williams). John was the son of Richmond C. Green and Martha Young. Augustine was the daughter of Adolph T. Williams and Selena B. Parrish.

    This is so sad. It’s always sad to see someone turn their life around only to end up in the same place they were heading to before. Rest in peace Nipsey.
