Nick Cannon said the best way he can honor Nipsey Hussle is by completing his documentary on the late Alfredo Bowman, also known as Dr. Sebi. Dr. Sebi was a herbalist who controversially claimed he had the cure for AIDS.
On early Monday morning, Cannon posted four videos to his Instagram page, one a tribute to Hussle and the others about Dr. Sebi.

Hussle was shot and killed on Sunday, March 31, at 3:20 p.m. outside the clothing store he owned in South Los Angeles. And in 2018 he talked about working on a documentary on Dr. Sebi during a visit to “The Breakfast Club.”
“King this is how I want to remember you! Laughing! Smiling! I ain’t slept yet, thinking about our conversations!,” wrote Cannon under a photo of himself and Hussle. “Your message is my message! Your work is my work! I know you still rocking with us and your voice will never be silenced.”
Although the “Wild ‘n Out” host didn’t say he’d complete the documentary in his picture with Hussle, he implied it in his following posts.
“Unfinished King Business! Pay Attention! Lets Go! #Fearless ✊🏾 @NipseyHussle #drsebi @dietaryresolutions,” Cannon captioned a video.
In his second post about Dr. Sebi — who died in 2016 at the age of 82 — Cannon used the hashtag #Marathon, which is the name of the store Hussle owned where the shooting took place.
And in Cannon’s third share about the herbalist, he wrote “We have to take responsibility for our own.”
“Yessss Nick! Push the message man!,” someone wrote under that video.
And Cannon wasn’t the only one who had Dr. Sebi and Hussle on his mind at the same time. All day on Monday, people were sharing conspiracy theories that Hussle was killed because he was working on the documentary.
“Nipsey hussle was making a documentary on the pharmaceutical industry being worth billions and he was going to expose the government for having no cure now he dead,” someone tweeted.
The rapper Chingy had a similar take.
“See y’all may think this has to do with sum street sh– but I actually think it has to do with the documentary he was doing,” he wrote in a now deleted message.
