On the first #FREESTYLEFRIDAY episode ever, our host takes a moment to reflect on the loss of Nipsey Hussle, the struggles to grieve, and his HOPE. This episode is about growth, evolution, and loss. Those three don't typically go together but to learn in many ways it involves losing something - in this case it wasn't something that we wanted to process just yet.
