The tributes for Nipsey Hussle continue to roll in for those who were deeply affected by his death, but none can compare to the loss felt by those who were closet to the rapper. His family has stayed silent these last few days as they've processed the incredible devastation that Nipsey's murder has left them feeling. Just an hour ago, the rapper's sister Samantha Smith shared a photo of herself with Nipsey, an image that was full of smiles and memories of much happier times.

Smith wrote:

You are my heart. You are my strength my wisdom my joy my balance. You are my Superhero. Invincible to me. I feel so safe with you. I feel so covered and protected. Imperfections do not exist with you because you are flawless. I need you I need you please let me hold you again. You are my baby. To the world you are the strongest man and to me you are the most vulnerable innocent child. Your heart is pure they don’t know you like we know you. Your love is expansive. Talk to me again. You’ve taught me so much. You hold me down through everything. I got Lauren. I got Emani. I got Kross. I got Sam, he is my responsibility now. He is my big little brother. I got mommy and Granny and Pop. You gave me so many tools. You gave me so much insight. We will talk every second of everyday and I am here to carry out your vision. Ermias God Will Rise. I love you forever and I will cry forever. You are my lifeline as long as I am here you are too.

Earlier today, Nipsey's love, longtime girlfriend, and mother of his child Lauren London broke her silence by sharing a photo of the rapper with a short, but sweet, message. She called him her best friend, her sanctuary, and her soul, while stating that she is "lost" without him.
