I HONESTLY DO NOT HAVE TOO MUCH TO SAY REGARDING THIS SENSELESS MURDER. I WANT TO PUT OUT THERE THAT, NIPSEY HUSTLE, WAS NOT LIKE THE MAJORITY OF ARTISTS IN THIS ENTERTAINMENT FIELD. HE WAS SOMEONE WHO NOT ONLY GAVE BACK TO HIS NEIGHBORHOOD, HELPING THE POOR GAIN EMPLOYMENT, CREATING OPPORTUNITIES IN A AREA THAT HAD FEW, HE WAS SOMEONE WHO STAYED TRUE TO HIMSELF & OTHERS.

IN A TIME THAT HAS ME FEELING LIKE SINCE I HAVE TURNED 30, DEATH SEEMS TO BE AROUND EVERYWHERE! WE GOT TO DO BETTER AS A CULTURE….FORGET WHAT THIS RACE SHIT! I REPEAT AS A CULTURE WE NEED TO DO BETTER!! IM SENDING OVER HELLA PRAYERS TO HIS FAMILY & LOVED ONES FOR ONCE THE NEWS OF HIS DEATH DIES DOWN, THE REAL STRUGGLE IS MAINTAINING EVERYDAY WITH THE KNOWLEDGE THAT YOU CAN NOT TALK NOR FEEL THEM PHYSICALLY EVER AGAIN.

Who vandalized Prince tribute?

If you’re from Cleveland you’re aware of our ‘Supreme’ store better known as, ilthy.

Glen Infante has silently contributed to the Culture for the past 10 plus years. You’ve seen and admired his work and have no idea who he is.

The famous brightly colored paintings, T’s and murals of celebrities eating sprinkle covered donuts. Cavaliers T-Shirts with the team pictured as caricatures. The infamous easter egg colored depiction of Jesus. Countless in-store events and cool ass marketing photos and videos.

If you’ve attended a Cavaliers game, driven past the arena or driven around Cleveland…particularly the Westside, you’ve more than likely have seen his work. Glen has been procured several times to beauty the grey Cleveland landscape with his awesome murals.

One of those murals being a tribute to Prince. It was recently vandalized. Nonetheless, Glen’s loyalty to his city and dedication to his work had him repainting the defacement for hours.

Thanks Glen for your contributions to the Culture of our city!
