Nick Cannon Wants to Finish Nipsey Hussle’s Dr. Sebi Documentary
On Sunday (March 31), Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed in front of his store, The Marathon, in Los Angeles, and now Nick Cannon has hinted towards wanting to finish the late rapper's documentary on controversial herbalist, Dr. Sebi.
Addressing Nipsey's tragic deal yesterday, Cannon hinted at his plans to pick up where Nip left off.
"I’m gonna say this only for the real ones to recognize. Where you left off, we gonna carry one! It’s a MARATHON, so I’m picking up the baton!" Cannon wrote with a photo of himself and Hussle. "Because they can’t kill us all! Spiritual Warfare is REAL and in full effect. And now your Spirit is protecting your community eternally! Your words, your steps, your walk always was and always will be SOLID! Now, Your message is my message! Your work is my work! I know you still rocking with us and your voice will never be silenced, because to be absent from the body is to be present with the Most High! So now that you are at Peace don’t Rest... Keep leading... Keep Shining King! Cosmic Love My Brotha!"
Cannon went on to share a series of videos of Dr. Sebi, and in each caption, mentioned Hussle in some way. He also wrote "can't kill us all," and it could stem from the current conspiracy theories surrounding the rapper's death.
Some people believe Hussle was killed by the government because he was trying to shed light on what Dr. Sebi was doing before his own mysterious death. Many have speculated that the government killed Sebi because he'd be taking away big money from the pharmaceutical industry if he did in fact find a natural cure for AIDS as he'd claimed.
The documentary is one Nipsey has openly discussed for a while now. In a February 2018 interview with The Breakfast Club, the rapper-entrepreneur opened up about his his plans for the documentary on Dr. Sebi, whose real name was Alfredo Darrington Bowman. Nip said he wanted to focus on the case he beat in 1985.
“Dr. Sebi went to trial in New York because he put in the newspaper that he cured AIDS," Hussle said in The Breakfast Club interview. "He beat the case. Then he went to federal court the next day, and he beat that case. But nobody talks about it."
In a March 2018 interview with Tariq Nasheed, Hussle was once again discussing the documentary, and lightly joked about how his fans were warning him to be careful. Many have taken this as a sign that the rapper knew what was going to happen, and that it indeed was the government and not gang or beef-related.
In response to Nasheed saying Dr. Sebi "just died mysteriously down there," Hussle said, "You know what I mean? And so you know how they play! And now niggas is tweeting me, 'Hussle be careful man! Your plane gon' go down!' I said, 'Niggas better ride for me!'"
Dr. Sebi passed in 2016 at 82-years-old, while in police custody after being accused of money laundering in Honduras.
“Why do they kill all holistic doctors? You’re messing up the medical industry," Hussle said elsewhere in the interview. "You’re short-stopping his grind. They checking billions. You’re playing with some pharmaceutical money.”
Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed in front of his Marathon Clothing store in L.A. on Sunday (March 31), and died shortly after in the hospital. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the killing was gang-related.
