Nick Cannon announced plans on social media to continue Nipsey Hussle’s documentary on the healing doctor Alfredo Bowman more commonly known as Dr. Sebi.
Dr. Sebi’s claimed he could cure all illnesses and diseases with herbs and a unique vegan diet. Some believe this was viewed as a threat to the pharmaceutical industry and is linked to the cause of doctor’s death.
Hussle, who died on Monday, March 31, after being shot six times outside of his clothing store in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, spoke about producing a documentary on the doctor during a 2018 interview with the Breakfast Club.
“I’m working on doing a documentary on the trial in 1985 when Dr. Sebi went to trial against New York, because he put in the newspaper that he cured AIDS,” said Hussle. “He beat the case, and he went to federal court the next day and beat that case. On record. And nobody talks about it.”
Socials users have been discussing whether Hussle’s muder was an act of ignorance or targeted because of his work with the community and the upcoming documentary.
Today, Nick Cannon announced he plans to pick up the baton and continue Hussle’s work saying, “[they] can’t kill us all.”
According to the Los Angeles Times, law enforcement sources believe the killer was someone in the Hussle’s orbit. Detectives believe the gunman has gang ties but that the motive is likely personal in nature rather than a larger gang feud.
Although the motive behind Hussle’s is still being uncovered, it is clear that his work, specifically with this documentary, will live on.
