Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Monday, April 1 – about your Seattle Seahawks:

Seahawks Players Show Their Support

The music industry, specifically the rap & hip-hop community, is in pain as reports from Sunday say that popular rapper Nipsey Hussle was pronounced dead after a shooting near his clothing store in Los Angeles, California. The news shook the internet as figures from all parts of life took to social media to share how the rapper influenced them.

More than a few Seahawks players expressed their sadness and appreciation for Nipsey Hussle through a variety of tweets and retweets.

It's obvious that not only were these players fans of the musician, but that they'd been influenced in one way or another by the rapper and songwriter. Nipsey Hussle made his name in the West Coast hip-hop scene in the mid-2000's. He was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards in 2019.

Two other people were injured in the shooting according to the Los Angeles Police Department and the suspect is still at large.

Social Post Of The Day

Today's 'Social Post of the Day' comes from Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright, as he posted a video throwing out the first pitch at the Mariners game on Friday against the Boston Red Sox (Mariners took the series 3-1).
