T.I. carries on Nipsey Hussle’s mission to help the poor

Prince Williams/WireimageNearly two months after the murder of Nipsey HussleT.I. is dedicating himself to carrying on the L.A. rapper’s mission to uplift the poor.

TIP joined the Congressional Black Caucus Wednesday on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. to advocate for opportunity zones that would create incentives for investment in low-income communities, according to TIP said he is continuing Hussle’s commitment to help the disadvantaged.

Hussle was scheduled to appear on Capitol Hill to discuss a business plan for under-served neighborhoods, but his life was cut short before he could make the trip.

“Everybody knows that Nipsey was pretty much the founder of the idea to bring everyone together who, you know, may individually be able to do great things and make a significant impact on their own in their communities,” T.I. said. “But for us to come together, we can impact so, so many more communities and spread our efforts so much wider.”

The rapper/actor posted a photo himself at the meeting on Instagram with the comment, “Bitter/Sweet because this is the series of discussions my brother @nipseyhussle developed, inspired & was set to attend. We Did It In Your Honor Cuzz!!!!"
