A 23 year old White girl is going viral – for vandalizing a mural of deceased rapper/activist Nipsey Hussl
The incident occurred in Hartford, Connecticut, and was caught on video:
The Hartford mural was created just a few days after Nipsey was killed, on the corner of Crenshaw and Slausen, outside his Marathon store in Los Angeles.
Local members of the Crip gang commissioned the artwork to be painted as a symbol of their support for the deceased legend.
But a White girl decided to vandalize the mural – by spray painting “tags” all over the piece.
A passerby caught the girl vandalizing the mural and recorded it – and posted it on Live. The video quickly went viral, and was seen by more than 1,000,000 people.
The girl – who goes by the name KayKay – eventually went on Facebook, and told viewers why she vandalized the rapper’s mural.
Along busy highways, on the sides of buildings and inside a school basketball court, more than 50 colorful murals of Nipsey Hussle have popped up in Los Angeles since the beloved rapper and community activist was gunned down outside his clothing store.
Some show the rapper gazing into the sky or bowing his head. One has him standing with angel wings. Others include inspiring quotes. The street artists who created the work said they want his legacy to grow and his entrepreneurial spirit to live on.
“He wasn’t the biggest star, but I knew his music. His passing led me to rediscover him under a completely new light,” said Levi Ponce, who created an elaborate blue, black and white mural on 26-foot-building with Hussle’s image in one day. A lyric from his song “Victory Lap” was written above his head.
Hussle was fatally shot on March 31 while standing outside The Marathon, his South Los Angeles clothing store, not far from where he was raised.
