The death of rapper and activist Nipsey Hussle has left his fans and industry colleagues in a state of shock, confusion and filled with conspiracy theories.

While trying to make sense of who could possibly have killed him and why, many have linked his death to his support for renowned herbalist the late Dr Sebi.

In April 2018 Hussle did an interview with The Breakfast Club in which he said he used Dr Sebi's products and wanted to do a documentary which would be based on Dr Sebi's 1985 trial, where he represented himself in court and won, after he claimed that he could cure Aids. 

"He beat the case and he went to federal court the next day and beat that case, on record. And nobody talked about it. I think the story is important, I think it's a powerful narrative." 

Nipsey's death has opened old wounds as people are now questioning the timing of Lisa "Left eye" Lopes's death, with some saying she too was killed because of her association with Dr Sebi.

Lisa was a hip-hop artist and rapper who died in 2002 after a car accident in Honduras, which is where Sebi lived.

Prior to her death, Lisa had been outspoken about the work of Dr Sebi, and vowed to make him famous as she too had been his patient. Various video clips of Dr Sebi and Lisa have been making the rounds online.

Nipsey's followers believe that he may have predicted that his production of the documentary would result in his death. 

His last tweet has also caught the attention of his followers, who believe that he may have sensed that someone was out to get him.

Musician and actor Nick Cannon is among many who knew and loved Nipsey. Taking to Instagram, Nick has been posting a series of videos of Dr Sebi's interviews and a picture of him and Nipsey.
