Six Sev

Artist, Entrepreneur

Artist and entrepreneur Six Sev (born Elijah Simmons) hails from the Crenshaw District of Los Angeles. Inspired by the late Nipsey Hussle—who featured Sev’s designs in his Marathon store—Sev continues to work in and support the Crenshaw and Leimert Park communities. His musical debut, Sevshaw, is a testimony to the legacy Nipsey Hussle left behind, highlighting moments of black enterprise, gentrification, social change, and LA culture. As a community leader, Sev has offered creative direction for visuals that include "Old Town Road," partnered with Adidas to donate shoes to Crenshaw High School students, and is responsible for the "Make Crenshaw Great Again" campaign.
