We will honor these OG’s of Los Angeles for inspiring our tribe to take life into their own hands to walk the path you create! Sometimes, words don’t do justice when you want to commemorate someone who has transitioned so we had to express our emotions through this custom artwork.
- Nipsey Hussle and Adolf Dulan are both prominent figures in the Crenshaw/Slauson/Inglewood community. The DFFRNTWRLD® Tribe had special relationships with these two kings as friends of Nipsey and family of Adolf. We’re grateful to have been able to work and share space with their energy while in this matrix realm.
- Working with Nipsey on several occasions showed us what West coast authenticity really looks like. Our first interview with him on the set of Wrath of Cain was the first time we realized how much our values and goals aligned. Like minds always seem to connect, and when we did, all of our thoughts were forward. Nipsey, you’ve left a permanent mark on the world, we will make sure TMC is eternal in our work, blessings king, rest up!
- Adolf Dulan was known by the LA community as the King of Soul Food. His empire stretched from Hamburger City, to Aunt Kizzy’s Back Porch, to Soul Food Kitchen. He provided jobs to the community, invested in small businesses and local entrepreneurs, and always had a positive message for his people. We called him Uncle Adolf, and every time we linked up it was a business party and celebration.
May you both rest in peace and continue to watch over us all! We rock these shirts so your memory will last and exist in our day to day movements. We know you two are enjoying the afterlife, sipping champagne with a sweet rolled! Continue to guide and nourish our entrepreneurship activities, until we see each other on that other side. Blessings!
