Since then, social media users have inquired about if the t-shirt is available to purchase anywhere, as well as offered their thoughts on the shirt’s message, with a handful of people in favor of it.


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


Although there are a couple of variations of the shirt, the one that Miguel is wearing is similar to this one being sold by a brand called freebeforeeleven.

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.”
