Offset Reveals He’s Copping Property W/ Cardi B: “We Buying The Block RIP Nip The Marathon Continues”

Offset Cardi B Clout Video

Atlanta rapper Offset is proving it’s deeper than rap. The hip-hop star has confirmed hype and speculation about buying property in Georgia.

Last night, Off went to Instagram to acknowledge the real estate power move and tip his hat to late rapper Nipsey Hussle.

Earlier in the week, buzz developed about Off and his wife Cardi B buying up multiple Georgia homes.

Cardi B. and Offset are reportedly the proud owners of not one – but five – new homes in Jonesboro, Georgia, according to reports. WABE reports the pair purchased the homes for about $202,000 and an adjoining lot for another $50,000. “We are investors so we’re buying and selling property all the time,” the seller, JMH Home Buyers President Jeff Dimock, told WABE. “It was interesting that it was a celebrity couple, I assumed it was somebody looking for a good cash-flow investment. During the pre-sale conversations we were not aware of the buyers’ identities.” (11 Alive)

Additional details have also surfaced on how decked-out the houses are.

Four of the properties have three bedrooms and one bathroom and the other is a two-bedroom home with a single bathroom, WABE reported. Currently, four of the five homes have tenants. (Springfield News-Sun)

The power move has reportedly sparked immediate interest from other potential buyers.

Selling to celebrities has its perks, even when the property is in Clayton County, a southern suburb of Atlanta. A day after the purchase was made public Dimock says he heard from a buyer in California interested in “buying whatever property we had near theirs.” (WABE News)

Our last time in the studio puttin’ finishing touches on the record we got together. My nigga threw up 60’s so much, you had to throw yo shit back up just so you wasn’t over-powered by his….. when we grew up, it wasn’t ever kool to kick it with no crips if you was bloodin’ & vice versa.. but when @SnoopDogg embraced me when I came in the game it brought a new understanding of how REAL niggas separated themselves from the confinement of what LA gang bangin was at that time which was far away from its origin of peaceful protective groups formed in the 1960’s. A few fights then turned into murder (Research Raymond Washington & Sylvester Scott on the internet for the history) & gang bangin would then take a turn down a road in which the neighborhoods of Los Angeles, Compton, Watts, Long Beach & other cities are still trying to recover from. There’s a deeper explanation, education & understanding that I can bring those who are unaware & misinformed about gang life in totality but that’s another day….. circling back around to where I started.. I was just saying how dope it was to be able to break the color lines to which we were loyal to, to show the world that a crip & blood could tour the world together, create a friendship & bond that would serve as an example for the next generation of young African American kids growing up in the same darkness. Snoop showed me & I was happy to return the love when I met nip & show him the same. I might be rambling on or not making sense to some or all this might touch somebody & make perfect sense to all…. in the end, What I’m really saying is I miss my nigga dearly !!! What a pure soul #TheMarathonContinues 🏁 #OneNipPostADayTiliFadeAway

A few days ago, Game went to Instagram with a pic of himself, Hussle, Raekwon and Pharrell.

The rap star went to Instagram last Sunday to tell fans they can financially help Hussle’s fam by buying his Marathon Clothing merch.

Survivor From Nipsey Hussle Shooting Expected to be Released From Jail

The man who was arrested for a parole violation after he was shot with Nipsey Hussle is expected to be released.

Kerry Lathan, 56, was arrested because his parole prohibits him from associating with known gang members, and the late rapper is a member of the Rolling 60’s Crips. Lathan said in a recent interview that he didn’t know the “Racks in the Middle” rapper prior and that he was just there shopping before Eric Holder came and opened gun fire.

After getting hospitalized, Lathan was transferred to Men’s Central Jail in downtown L.A.but TMZ reports that the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation withdrew its petition to revoke his parole.

There’s no telling why the Corrections Department made this decision. Presumably because Nipsey Hussle has been celebrated as a community hero and exemplary leader who promote black ownership and financial literacy. He got love from L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti to President Obama and the LAPD.

Ironically, he was scheduled to meet with the LAPD alongside Roc Nation to discuss combating gang violence.

SOURCE SPORTS: James Harden Says His Playoff Run is For Nipsey Hussle

So far through the 2019 NBA playoffs, James Harden has been the best player on any court. Aside from wanting to prove that he and his Houston Rockets are the NBA’s best, what is driving the swingman, the memory of Nipsey Hussle.

While on the press conference podium after notching the second straight win against the Utah Jazz, Harden was questioned about the significance of his chain, which has the face of the late rapper.

“He’s one of my close friends. This journey that I’m on is for him, it’s plain and simple,” Harden responded.

Harden and Hussle attended the same school growing up and continued their friendship through their adulthood.

“That name Nip. Everybody knows that name now. I’m just another person helping that name live on.”

The Jazz-Rockets series will shift to Salt Lake City, Utah for Game 3 on Saturday, where Harden will continue to do it for Nipsey.

You can see the moment from Harden’s presser below.

JR Smith Imagines Tiger Woods Repping Nipsey Hussle: “How I Woke Up On The Golf Course!”

Tristan Thompson LeBron James JR Smith

Cleveland Cavaliers’ JR Smith is still showing late rapper Nipsey Hussle the most respect. The former NBA champion went to social media this week to imagine golf icon Tiger Woods repping the West Coast legend’s legacy.

On Thursday, JR jumped on Instagram Thursday with a photoshopped pic of Woods donning one of Hussle’s signature Crenshaw shirts after winning last weekend’s Masters tournament.

This week, NBA mogul Michael Jordan called Woods’ Masters victory the greatest career comeback – ever.

The Athletic’s David Aldridge reached out to Michael Jordan about his reaction to his friend Tiger Woods winning The Masters last Sunday and the NBA legend and Charlotte Hornets owner agrees with most assessments: It was the greatest comeback. “I took two years off to play baseball, but nothing like that,” Jordan told Aldridge. “I’m pretty sure he questioned himself, whether he could get it back, and he had to put a lot of work in. But he took it head-on. He had to change his game; he had to change his perspective a little bit. To me, it was the greatest comeback I’ve ever seen.” (USA Today)

Look: Game Pens Good Morning Message To Nipsey Hussle – “You’re The First Thought In My Head When I Wake Up”

Cali Dream Game

West Coast rapper Game is letting Nipsey Hussle know he’s on his mind. The rap veteran went to Instagram Thursday to share an open message to the late California king.

Good morning bro, I love you. You are the 1st thought in my head when I wake. It’s not forced, you’re just there. My dreams are different & my sleep overall has been rough. It’s an unsettled feeling that is sort of unexplainable. I lost my pops, you were there. You sent flowers to the crib & checked on me every other day until I told you things were getting a lil’ easier. You were always “A better human” than me. I used ask you like “Nip, why you just a better human than me” & you would say “Naw Chuck, you do the same shit as me it’s just harder to notice from the inside.. but I see it”. But really, you were. I mean, I love, I care, I give, I help, I motivate, I…… do the best I can for as many people as possible but your love for people was different. I got mad at you when you called me about the @meekmill beef trying to squash it & I told you “stop ridin for these niggas, this the West” !!! & you told me “you gone do what you wanna do Chuck & I’m always with you but that’s the bro I’m telling you, I talked to Meek & he ready to let it go”. I didn’t listen, so the beef lingered & then Meek got locked up & I remember feeling really bad about that. Then he got outta jail & in the midst of everything he was going through that day, he called me & said he’d been thinking about me in jail & one of the 1st things he wanted to do when he got out was put our differences aside. So we did. I called you, told you & I could hear the smile thru the phone before you saying “Told You Chuck…. we can do so much more if we are unified in this shit”. Your heart bro, your heart. Always pure, always solid. Always my brother…. “THE GREAT @NIPSEYHUSSLE” !!!! Feel his energy, I know you do. Look around, the person you see next to you does too ! #TheMarathonContinues 🏁🏁🏁 #OneNipPostADayTiliFadeAway
