Billion Temesghen: What does being Eritrean mean to you?
Nipsey Hussle: More than anything I am proud of being Eritrean. The history of our country, our struggle and the underdog story, the resilience of the people and our integrity is something that I feel pride in being attached to. Most definitely I do remain closely in touch with our history and our people. I have had the pleasure of preforming in festivals of Eritrean communities like that of San Diego. We also went to Europe and participated in similar events with the community.
