Nail artist Spifster Sutton is one of them, recently taking to social media to share her “Nipsey set” creation a few days ago.

The nail art was inspired by a custom Sik’s View bandana chore coat Nipsey was photographed in before his death, complete with patchwork designs and “Hussle” written on one of the nails.
