Nipsey Hussle Unfairly Handcuffed At Trayvon Martin Protest

YRB 2010 Art Issue Celebration

And so it begins. Nipsey Hussle attended a peaceful protest on behalf of Trayvon Martin in Leimert Park, Los Angeles on Tuesday (July 16), where he was unfairly handcuffed then released, under the suspicion that he was carrying a firearm.

TMZ reports that the LAPD cuffed the rapper when they suspected that he was carrying a gun, only to eventually find out that he wasn’t. Nipsey has been very outspoken about the not guilty verdict in the Trayvon Martin trial in the past few days.

“A riot might b ignorant but doing nothin about this verdict would be cowardice,” he tweeted on July 14. “I’m jus sayin I seen n—-s do more than riot over less than murder…gangbanin need some #newrules.”

In the wake of Saturday’s not guilty verdict, rallies and protests across the nation have continued in an effort to find justice for the slain teen. On this Wednesday’s (July 17) episode of “RapFix Live” Wyclef Jean, Prodigy,and activist Kevin Powell will join us for a special episode to tackle the tough subject.
