    I just started seeing "RIP Nipsey Hussle" messages everywhere. Honestly, I thought it was a nickname for Nipsey Russell, a 60's-70's era black comedian who was famous for always having a little humorous poem ready. He was all over the celebrity game shows like Pyramid. Nipsey Hussle? Never heard of him.

    Clearly a take of the funny and talented original but the news reports for this unknown are everywhere which is weird.

    The girl who would make my life complete
    need not be young and fair;
    Just be a nymphomaniac
    and a multimillionaire.

    (To which Betty White replied, "I'm not a multimillionaire but one out of two ain't bad.")

    Nipsey Russell died in 2005 at the age of 87. I remember him from game shows.

    Right, I was going to say I thought I'd seen him on Match game or Pyramid. Other than that, I know nada about either one but I think I'll go check out some of Hussle's tunes.

    What is the secret of eternal youth?
    The answer is easily told;
    All you gotta do if you wanna look young
    Is hang out with people who are old.
