Outside music, the rapper was widely known for his philanthropic works and entrepreneurial savviness, owning several businesses along the block he was shot, including his Marathon Clothing store, a burger restaurant, a barbershop and a fish market, the LA Times reports. He also never stopped short of empowering the youth through various community outreach programs and helping residents in need whenever he could.

“The man was instrumental in a lot of stuff. Fighting gentrification, trying to stop gang violence,” Malik Spellman, a community activist told the LA Times. “The facts are he was a good person.”
