Jonathan Teklai is tech entrepreneur with a passion for comedy. Jon has seen how his desire to own & build initiatives, projects, and events while doing it with his friends has been a direct result of being inspired by the music and past interactions he's had with Nipsey Hussle. On this episode, we honor the life of Nipsey Hussle and share how he is inspiring all of us to continue what he has started.
"The first time I was hired for something I cared about was when de entertainment asked/blessed me to be a videographer for Nipsey Hussle’s show in San Jose in 2012. That first feeling of receiving money for something I would have paid to be at was wild. I didn’t actually know what I was doing but I said yes and that started a turn of events that made me start actually developing my passions now that people thought I was legit because I shot a Nipsey show, and then I got to shoot two more Nipsey shows in the next couple years in Oakland and Petaluma. I didn’t know Nipsey on a personal level but he still changed my life and anyone who can do that from a far has truly lived a full life. Thank you for helping me open my mind on what a young Eritrean man can do in America." - JON TEKLAI
"He was really out here doing what so many of us say we wanna do..But it’s only gonna inspire more artist of all genres to go as hard as they can. It only makes Nipsey more immortal and his legacy live on forever. It strengthens the mission he already had. Love to you and your family. Thank you for your contribution to the world. Flesh is temporary. Energy never dies. Safety to you on your journey. Thank you for being the right example to me and so many others." - ALIM SMITH
