    • Jae Icon says:

      @Andy Pham u expect that man to help every black ppl?????

    • Jae Icon says:

      @Donovan Mitchell ur president not ours

    • Ben Chillin says:

      He isn’t anyones’ President. That’s not how it works. Donald Trump is your President.

  • Madelyn Mathers says:

    What an awesome tribute from one of our country’s finest Presidents!

    • Donovan Mitchell says:

      Madelyn Mathers I wouldn’t say finest but I agree!

    • Clay FKN Brown says:

      Obama was a lame duck president.

  • rosegoldbb says:

    That wig.. but ok

    • rosegoldbb says:

      Jernel Strong I’m just saying that’s all I see

    • bee t says:

      Almost all black girls have wigs and weave nowdays, so u pointed out the obvious…

    • rosegoldbb says:

      bee t I pointed out how wiggy it looks
      Y’all doing the most it was a joke
      But all I see is it taking half her forehead with a little hump..ijs 👆

    • Jernel Strong says:

      @DontNeedToKnow84 lmfao

    • Jernel Strong says:

      @rosegoldbb the point is at a time like this do u really think yr comment was necessary that’s the least important thing to worry about

  • Kendrah Terrell says:


  • CrimsonTide says:

    Biden 2020–>Obama Legacy Restored!

  • Kevin Poole says:

    Right On Barack let us Move Forward on Nipseys Legacy

    • Adaryll Kelly says:

      If Obama would have done a fraction of what Our beloved Brother Nipsey was doing, we would have had a great day of reckoning for the Black Communities across the country. Obama had no interest, and unfortunately his policies proved it. So let’s not get side tracked with who praise Nipsey, but who follows Nipsey path of Greatness. Rest in paradise 👑 Nipsey

    • Jacob Alfaro says:

      @Adaryll Kelly if Obama didn’t have people shutting everything he tried to do down we would be better. WTH? Lol

    • Adaryll Kelly says:

      @Jacob Alfaro Not true, he implemented executive orders only when it was convenient for him. No real fight in that guy for the people. Research it.

  • Pelt Down Posse says:

    Who shot the punk? Stop shooting each other up!

    • Omar Avalos says:

      Your step dads name wasnt mentioned what punk would you be talking about?

    • Antonio Goode says:

      It you don’t have nothing to say don’t say it you sound stupid for your comment

    • Pelt Down Posse says:

      @Antonio Goode Stop shooting each other!

    • Antonio Goode says:

      Not even black person shooting each other white people do it to the problem is that the newspaper don’t print it they print black only

    • Pelt Down Posse says:

      @Antonio Goode Big time wrong! They media does not want to use the word “black”…So stop it. There was three young girls in Florida yesterday. They were naked in the middle of the day…outside…in the middle of the day. Someone called the pOlice….and when the pOlice arrived..the young girls tried to run them over…one had a baseball bat…I’m thinkin…Who does that?
      It was black girls! Why bro? Why? So stop your crap. I’m black too!

  • tiffany curtis says:


    • Jon Cooper says:

      tiffany curtis , You obviously have never had major medical problems, or you’ve always had big money to pay doctors & hospitals. I don’t know who this “Nipsey” was, nor do I care. I know who President OBAMA is. Because of HIM my family & I can go to any Dr. and hospital and receive care, without going bankrupted. I am not a religious man, I am a BLACK MAN who says this: “May God Watch Over You & Your Family, MR. PRESIDENT.”

    • tiffany curtis says:


    • OTHER says:

      He’s smarter than most. He knows that race is a social construct, so he’s not picking and choosing what color people he should make changes for. He made changes that impacted ALL. #43, 44, & 45 had a big impact on black communities.

  • unknown soldier says:

    The Presidency went from Black Excellence to white incompetence. Agolf Twitler can’t hold a candle to number 44!

    • 72 Nova says:

      The economy can.

    • Ollie Wood says:

      Exactly!! I love it “Agolf Twitler”…lol

    • 72 Nova says:

      @Ollie Wood dumb

  • Carol Johnson says:


  • KeepItReal says:

    Her eyelashes and tears are as fake are her dad..

    • Mel W says:

      KeepItReal you know that’s Karen Civil, she’s not an Obama

    • bee t says:

      Who is her dad ?

  • Zi21 BCballer says:

    That’s a real President right there.

  • Kochav Shavit says:

    Awww. Very sweet

  • THE KING PUG says:

    President Obama remember Nipsey for respect for family and friends

    • Ross Montoya says:

      Wanted ta thumbs up but im gonna leave that sixty instead.

  • KAYODE ORIJA says:

    Not even a tweet or condolence message from the 45th President of United States of American.Too bad Mr 45th President.

    • Baudilaire says:

      As much as I don’t care for Trump and respect what Nipsey represented I don’t think he is obliged to tweet or message. Barack for other reasons showed his respect but essentially to the rest of the world it’s just another life lost.


    OBAMA 💯💯💯💯

  • Diamond in the rough/ I am the Law says:


  • Jacinda Camacho says:

    This beautiful man is the real one 💯💪 Nipsey Hussle 🙏🕊️

  • Black Sunday Jess says:

    • REDANDSILVER741 says:

      derrick terry Get out of here, the President was a better man than you ever could be.

    • Ben Chillin says:

      @REDANDSILVER741 You probably think gangbanging, drug dealing Nipsey Hussle was a great man too, so you as a judge of character fail all the way around.

    • REDANDSILVER741 says:

      @Ben Chillin no I don’t, but that is the reality of the situation in lower income neighborhoods where drugs a d ga vs run rampant. Nipsey tried to change that with his music. Your comments are that of hate. Say what you want, you will not be remembered as a great man by the actions you are doing but Obama will. Nothing you day will change that

    • Hot Lava Fire Jitsu says:

      There won’t be another number 44 ya your right lmao but u get what u saying yeah we just needa hang the number 44 jersey in the rafters of the whitehouse

    • dane jurasley says:

  • LooxGood says:

  • Herbo Turbo says:


  • Eddie G says:

    Obama is a lying POS. I will bet my last dollar that Obama’s self hating white bread daughters never heard of Nipsey Hussle before he was murdered. My nephew goes to Harvard and he told me that he never seen Obama’s daughter with a black person. She don’t hang out where the black people hang out and she don’t go to the parties or dances that black people attend. Obama, his wife and his daughters are enemies of black people.

  • widows son says:

    I think that is a disgrace to play a letter from someone who killed Gaddafi a Libyan leader who was going to transform Africa with oil wealth

    • chelsea curry says:

      This had nothing to do with Obama. This was not even during his time in office. So please STFU.

    Obama did nothing for the blacks … Nipsey did more R.I.P

    • Micah Atkins says:

      That is simply untrue. Opportunists will always make exaggerated claims like yours.

  • Good Golly Miss Polly says:

    What a wonderful entertainer. Genuine Soul.

  • Adaryll Kelly says:

    Please understand that this was a power grab for the Black vote for this up coming election, so Obama could endorse another corporate Democrat. Obama would have never acknowledge Our Brother 👑 Nipsey if LAPD wouldn’t have spoke so highly of Nipsey’s United Deeds, and heart warming Greatness, of solving some of our most devastating issues that we face in our Black Communities, followed by the mainstream news positive & fair coverage of him. So Obama risked nothing, and tried to gain something for acknowledging Our Brother 👑 Nipsey. Rest in paradise 👑 Nipsey

  • Lisa Tucker says:

    R.I.P Nipsey Hussle your legacy will forever live on , everyone spoke highly of you which made me feel you were a wonderful person . Sorry for your loss Laura London and family.

    I got my already programmed and blanked ATM card to withdraw the maximum of
    $20,000 daily for a maximum of 35 days. I am so happy about this because i
    got mine last week and I have used it to get $100,000 so far. MR BEN DONARD
    is giving out the card just to help the poor and needy though it is illegal
    but it is something nice and he is not like other scam pretending to have
    the blank ATM cards. And no one gets caught when using the card. get yours
    from him. Just apply via email “”.

    Obama might have not been the best president from an economic standpoint but maaaaan he is hands down the most genuine human being to ever be called president

  • hossein_arpi8526 says:

    Bruh idc, nipsey is the second Tupac he was a straight up hustler

  • Londyn Harris says:

    2020 ANYBODY

  • Jesus Gutierrez says:

    Obama is a war criminal

    • Micah Atkins says:

      ……If you refuse to apply necessary context, maybe. In other words, the office of the presidency would automatically make one a war criminal, …by your standards. It’s literally impossible to defend and protect US citizens, without falling within someone’s perception of being criminal. In fact, why not just name every man that’s been elected, rather than the one you want to demonize today?
      Tell the entire story or continue trying to deceive . Your choice.

  • Danny Boy says:

    We all can down as Greats . Nipsey got all his knowledge from books . When he was a alive , he titled himself a Great and a King . Thoughts are powerful , speak it into existence and put fourth action behind it
