Before the untimely passing of Grammy-nominated artist, Nipsey Hussle, fans anticipated his documentary on the late Dr. Sebi. Sebi was a holistic doctor and self-proclaimed healer. Nipsey Hussle spoke about his upcoming documentary on The Breakfast Club during a recent interview before his passing.


During the interview with The Breakfast Club, Hussle explained why he was passionate about bringing new attention to the work of Dr. Sebi.

“I am working on doing doc on the trial in 1985. When Dr. Sebi went to trial in New York because he put in the newspaper that he cured AIDS. He beat the case. Then he went to federal court the next day, and he beat that case. But nobody talks about it,” said Hussle.

“I think the story is important. It’s a powerful narrative. Like if someone in this room said, ‘Hey, I cured AIDS.’ I’d be like, ‘Yeah, right.’ And then I can show you an example of him going to trial and proving in court he [cured] AIDS, I’d be interested in it. More so than championing his products or explaining his methodology. Put some light on that case,” he added. The passionate efforts by the “Victory Lap” rapper, cause speculation and conspiracy theories that his death was connected to his documentary about Sebi.

After Hussle’s passing, many wondered if the documentary would ever see the light of day. Nick Cannon recently met with Dr. Sebi’s family stating he would “pick up the baton” and finish the documentary in honor of Nipsey Hussle. Dr. Sebi’s family including his wife, children, and grandchildren are apart of the creative process in this new documentary.
