No one in the NFL appears to be more affected by Nipsey Hussle’s death than DeSean Jackson.
The two met were childhood friends in the Crenshaw neighborhood of south central L.A. in the late 90s, and remained close as they both rose to fame.
Jackson made waves in 2014 after he flashed the gang sign for Rollin’ 40s Crips in a photo with Nip following a show in Philadelphia. Nipsey was a member of the Rollin’ 60s Crips.
You may also remember Jackson throwing the gang sign in the face of Redskins’ DeAngelo Hall.
During the 2019 season, the Eagles wide receiver wore custom Nispey Hussle cleats during warmups of every game of the before auctioning them to benefit Nipsey’s children, Kross and Emani.
And on Wednesday, the 33-year-old wide receiver drove home in his greatest Nipsey tribute yet–a custom 2020 Rolls-Royce Cullinan with the interior in “Nipsey Blue” aka Crip Blue.
FYI: The Cullinan starts at $325,000, with no bells and whistles…
The game is sold not to be told !! @nipseyhussle you already know I had to do it Loco 🔵🔵NipBlu💙💙
Jackson brought in Champion Motoring to add Nispey Blue details throughout, including custom lighting on the doors that projects Nipsey’s face on the street when opened and add Nispey Blue details throughout the vehicle.
We can only hope to be honored this cleanly after we pass.
