“Both leaders in their community, Malcolm’s work and speeches have resonated with future generations of Black youth inspiring us to be strong, reliable, and to stand on your own principles. I believe NIPSEY took inspiration from Malcolm’s work and implemented it into his music. Both these men inspire me heavily on a daily basis, to stand firm in what I believe in and to help the person beside me to be able to learn and also not to be a sheep and blindly follow.” –Torrence Jayy
