London has spoken about her struggles with depression in the wake of Hussle's passing on multiple occasions over the years. Back in 2021, she told ET: “We can’t stop, you know? We do have a purpose, all of us, and it’s important for my sons to see me moving forward with grief, not just curling up in a ball, because I curled up in a ball for a long time. But especially for my eldest son because he’s just a little more aware. But we will continue moving on as we had to, as he would want us to.” Check out her latest tribute to Nipsey Hussle on Instagram below.
