Nipsey Hussle recently appeared on radio host Big Boy's The Neighborhood to discuss his new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) initiative.
Too Big To Fail will be a STEM center and maker space for youth in Los Angeles' Crenshaw neighborhood.
The rapper plans to launch the academy with his business partner and real estate developer Dave Gross. The 32-year-old said that he hopes the space can be a "bridge between Silicon Valley and the inner city."
The Los Angeles native doesn't plan to stop in California, saying that the first school will be "a model that we're going to scale." The duo has plans for STEM academies in other cities, such as: Atlanta, D.C., and Baltimore.
The ultimate goal is to create "a resource network across the country" that students can tap into for knowledge-sharing and networking.
