NIPSEY HUSSLE: Rapper Inspires Names for New Crayola Color

TeeRoy's 2 Cents:

  • It's not too late to change the name, is it? 
  • There's never been a Crayola crayon named after a person. You think they're going to start now -- with a gangster rapper of all people?
  • To everyone saying Crayola is "canceled" if they don't do this, when's the last time you even bought a pack of crayons?


A tweet surfaced on Thursday, looking to crowd source a name for a bold new shade of blue Crayola crayon.

The consensus from hip-hop fans is the new color is tailor-made for a Nipsey Hussletribute. The suggestion “Nipsey Blue” shot to the top of the trending topics. As one user wrote, “The hood calls this Nipsey Blue, they should too.” Even LeBron James showed his support for the frontrunner. Other suggestions included Blue Laces, Marathon Blue and Victory Blue. 

The problem is, the tweet people are responding to is actually from 2017. And the crayon already has a name -- Bluetiful.
