NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Anti-violence activists gathered in the Bronx on Sunday to amplify the peaceful message of slain rapper Nipsey Hussle, who was shot in Los Angeles late last month.

The “Kings Stop Killing Kings” march took place along the Grand Concourse. It honored the slain rapper and called for an end to violence in minority communities.

During the march, fellow rapper Mysonne took the mantle.

“You’re not no tough guy, you’re not no gangster for killing somebody that looks like you,” he said.

Among the marchers was Marion, who was a gang member in the 1970s.

“It’s senseless killing and these deaths don’t make no sense,” he said.

Patrice said it has to stop now.

“We cannot stand by another casket for black-on-black crime, for any type of crime,” she said.

Nipsey Hussle was gunned down March 31 outside his The Marathon clothing store. He was 33.
