"When you see me, you will always see him."
The death of Nipsey Hussle has struck the hip-hop community hard but the pain of his friends and family is going through is unfathomable. The rapper's massive memorial service was held at the Staples Centre earlier today where his fans, peers, family, and friend paid their final respects. Following the service, Nipsey's girlfriend, Lauren London, debuted a new tattoo she got in his honor.
Lauren London will carry Nipsey Hussle's legacy on her arm wherever she goes. She took to Instagram to reveal a brand new tattoo she got of Nipsey which covers her entire forearm. The tattoo is a portrait of the rapper's face with "God Will Rise" written underneath which is the English translation of Nipsey's real name, Ermias.
Lauren London delivered an emotional speech earlier today during Nipsey's service. Lauren delivered a beautiful speech and also brought her kids, Kross, who she had with Nipsey, and her son with Lil Wayne, Kameron, as well as Nipsey's eldest daughter.
"I want you to know I feel real joy in my heart when I’m around you, I feel safe when I am around you, protected,” it read in part. “I am totally myself when I am around you. I don’t wear my cool mask anymore. You’ve made me into more of a woman.”
