It’s hard to believe that it’s been two years since rapper and community builder Nipsey Hussle was murdered outside of his clothing store. Today, many fans, celebrities, and the people closest to him paid homage to the legend.
On Wednesday, Nipsey’s girlfriend, Lauren London, honored him in a heartfelt way on her Instagram page. The entertainer captioned the photo with a soulful prayer.
“In Honor of His life and demonstration… May all of Heaven exalt Your name for all You did on Earth and beyond. Brave and Beloved Soul, Ermias. You are missed deeply. You are loved immensely. You will forever be. I love you eternally. Your Boogie,” London said.
Lauren London and Nipsey Hussle were together since 2014. They have a son together named Cross, and he helped parent her other son Kameron from a relationship with Lil Wayne, and Emani, Nipsey’s daughter from a previous relationship.
Nipsey’s death took the hip-hop world by surprise. Not only was he a talented lyricist in his over a decade-long career, but he also gave back to the community in various ways.
Hussle and private equity investor Dave Gross were partnered on a STEM education center called Too Big to Fail in the Crenshaw neighborhood of South Los Angeles, California. In an interview, he told radio host Big Boy that Too Big To Fail was a “bridge between Silicon Valley and the inner-city.”
Hussle was also an advocate for Destination Crenshaw. This organization worked to transform the 1.3-mile stretch of Crenshaw Boulevard into an area of gorgeous community spaces, parks, greenery, and over 100 commissioned works of art to inspire others.
In essence, Nipsey Hussle gave many people hope to pursue their wildest dreams.
