As a show that strives to reflect its setting, “All American” has long maintained a connection to Nipsey Hussle.

Months after Hussle's death, the community he called home remains shaken by the loss of a gifted artist and force for positive change.

For students at the high school across from Hussle’s store, the musician and activist was a model of who they could become.

While "All American" was filming, “so many people from the community just came out to be able to just stand there and watch us shoot,” showrunner and executive producer Nkechi Okoro Carroll said.

With the Season 2 premiere, “Hussle and Motivate,” “All American” pays its respects.
