Nipsey Hussle's death opens conspiracy talk

The death of Nipsey Hussle has sparked outrage and confusion. The 33-year-old rapper who lost his life at the hands of gun violence is now a topic bigger than just himself. Hussle was working on a documentary before his death about the life of respected Honduran Dr. Sebi.  

According to Drsebiscellfood.com, Alfredo Bowman, or Dr. Sebi, was a pathologist, herbalist, biochemist and naturalist. He dedicated his life to studying and observing herbs in different parts of the world such as North America, Central and South America, Africa and the Caribbean. Dr. Sebi was a pioneer in the development of healing the human body with herbs. He had been developing this work for thirty years and had caught the attention of many celebrities and public figures alike. 

Bowman came to the United States diagnosed with asthma, impotence and obesity. He realized that the medicine and the treatment diagnosed by U.S. doctors were not the solution to all his diseases, so he went to Mexico. In Mexico, he found a herbalist that cured him of all his diseases through the use of natural herbs. Inspired, Dr. Sebi then started working on his own natural vegetation cell food compounds that were geared for inter-cellular cleansing and revitalization of all the cells that make up the human body.  

According to BBC, his work caught the attention of big names such as Lisa “Left Eye” Leslie, John Travolta and pop superstar Michael Jackson. Regardless of the fact that he didn’t have a medical license, many trusted him as he claimed that he had the cure to diseases such as cancer, arthritis, diabetes, asthma and AIDS. 

Before 1987, his company USHA Research Institute was freely taking in clients and spreading his claims to the world. But that year he went on trial and reached an agreement with the attorney general’s office in New York that stopped him from spreading these claims. 

According to BBC, New York assistant attorney Shirley Stark stated that his claims were “a particularly glaring example of unsubstantiated therapeutic claims.” “These were false,” Stark said. “Our office filed suit against USHA and entered a consent agreement under which USHA can no longer make therapeutic claims for any of its products.” 

Dr. Sebi was then charged with unauthorized practice of medicine. He was found not guilty when no proof was found that he had actually been making medical diagnoses or prescribing medical substances. He ultimately ended up dying of pneumonia in 2016 at the age of 82 after being arrested for money laundering.

A conspiracy has been spiraling about how Nipsey’s death was in the hands of the U.S. government because of what he planned on exposing in his documentary, which included information on the death of Dr. Sebi back in 2016.

The story of Dr. Sebi makes it convincing for a lot of people as to why the conspiracy would be real. He was a threat to the billion-dollar pharmaceutical companies that control the medicine industry. That is what Nipsey believed and decided to take actions into his own hands. In his song “Blue Laces 2” from his 2018 album Victory Lap, he rapped, “they killed Dr. Sebi, he was teaching health.” 

The conspiracy is that the U.S. government killed Nipsey to stop him from releasing the documentary that exposed the truth of the 1987 trial between Dr. Sebi and the New York state attorney general’s office. Many Twitter posts by the rapper support the claim that he knew that his death was inevitable. The rapper tweeted “having strong enemies is a blessing” on the exact same day he was killed. This has pushed believers of the conspiracy to promote the idea more. 

The news being spread around by the media is that Nipsey was killed by 29-year-old Eric Holder in front of his clothing store in Los Angeles. Rumors keep spreading that Holder testified that he was forced to kill Nipsey and that he would be let out of prison immediately. 

However, this all makes you stop to think about the U.S. government’s involvement in Nipsey’s death. It is very believable that the billion-dollar pharmaceutical company would not want the cure to these diseases to be natural herbs. These companies make their money by selling medications to their patients that most times help to extend their life by a couple years. By not releasing the true cures to these major diseases, pharmaceutical companies will continue to profit off their patients. 

I truly do believe that Dr. Sebi and Nipsey were killed in order to not release the truth. These companies control the lives of billions of people and will do anything to maintain their reign of power. 

Television personality Nick Cannon has now been motivated by the death of Nipsey to continue his work. “Can’t kill us all,” he posted on Instagram. The Instagram post featured Dr. Sebi and received millions of views. 

May Dr. Sebi and Nipsey rest in peace and I hope that both will receive the justice they deserve.
