Nipsey Hussle’s family doesn’t want any donations.
TMZ reports Hussle’s family is rejecting the funds because the business savvy rapper made sure his family was set for life before his death.
Sources close to the family said the “Dedication” rapper set up multiple trust funds for his two kids, 11-year-old Emani and 2-year-old Kross.
Hussle also owned all of his music and businesses. Streams of the rapper’s music increased by over 1,000% after his death, as Blavity previously reported.

Several crowdfunding accounts were created in Hussle’s honor including a controversial one from former NFL player Reggie Bush. Bush got into an argument with Hussle's friend and business partner Karen Civil, who demanded he take down a GoFundMe page out of respect for the family. The argument and GoFundMe page eventually disappeared from the internet.
Nip died of multiple gunshot wounds on March 31. Suspect Eric Holder reportedly shot him after an argument. Holder pleaded not guilty to the charges and faces life in prison. A public memorial service was held on Thursday, and the family held a private memorial the following day. On Friday, the Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously to dedicate the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and Slauson Avenue to Nip, reports WVAH. It will be renamed Nipsey Hussle Square.
