Grammy nominated rapper Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed Sunday outside his clothing store in South LA. Fans say Nipsey invested in his community, spoke out about gun violence and supported mom-and-pop restaurants. One of them was Mr. Fries Man, a business run by Craig Batiste that specializes in tasty, made-to-order fries. After Nipsey posted a photo of his loaded fries on Instagram one night, the customers started rolling in. Here’s KCRW reporter David Weinberg’s 2016 feature of Mr. Fries Man. Mr. Fries Man has since moved out of Batiste’s home kitchen and into a permanent brick-and-mortar space in Gardena.
