Former NBA player Matt Barnes recently stopped by “The DL Hughley Show” where he spoke openly about his late friend Nipsey Hussle and how white media has embraced the slain rapper as a hero.
With Barnes having played for both the LA Lakers and LA Clippers at the Staples Center, Nipsey Hussle’ memorial service that was held at the center on Thursday, April 11 really hit home for the NBA Champion.
During his interview, Barnes recalled meeting Nipsey in 2009 and recalled the emcee always being for the people and always trying to better himself and his community. He shared a friendship with the artist and was fortunate to have Nipsey perform at his birthday in the Bay Area.
