Crayola asked its Twitter followers back in 2017 to help name a blue crayon, but now, Nipsey Hussle fans think it’s the perfect opportunity to honor the late rapper.
Los Angeles Lakers’ star LeBron James, as well as countless other fans, are advocating for the name “Nipsey Blue.” Some other suggestions for Crayola include “Marathon Blue,” “TMC Blue” and “Crenshaw Blue,” with one Twitter user recommending the proceeds go to STEM programs for inner-city children, as the rapper would have wanted.
Nipsey, whose real name was Ermias Joseph Asghedom, was gunned down outside his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles on Mar. 31. See below for James’ recommendation for the blue crayon, as well as some other fan suggestions.
