But some users have also criticized the shirt, voicing their interpretation that it wishes death on Trump.

Miguel wore that ‘How Nipsey Before Trump?’ shirt and people are like “YESSSSS, I need that shit” is insane. Hating Trump is one thing but, saying he should be killed is taking it too far.

I think it’s pure ignorance seeing @Miguel peacefully flaunting a shirt that’s says “How Nipsey before Trump?” Despite your views against Trump. Wishing death on another person is distasteful.

A public memorial service for Hussle occurred Thursday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The service included appearances from Snoop Dogg and YG, as well as Hussle’s mother. Kendrick Lamar and Jay-Z also offered tributes to the late Los Angeles rapper, writing their own letters to him.
“A true King will be tested in adversity. To stand in fearlessness in what he believes will impact on the earth, as well as in heaven,” Lamar wrote. “So thank you Nipsey the Radical. Nipsey the Thinker. Nipsey the Father. Nipsey the Brother. Nipsey the Husband. Nipsey the Friend. Nipsey the Great. And from now on, Nipsey the Messenger……Shalom.”
