Lauren London And Nipsey Hussle’s Family Speak About His Legacy
The death of Nipsey Hussle broke hearts across the world, but no one is hurting more than his family. They have been quiet while grieving, but now they are speaking out.
Lauren London reflected about her lost love and described him as her “protector.”
“He was a truth seeker and truth speaker,” she told the Los Angeles Times. “I’m going to keep my head high and always represent for my king to the fullest. He loved his kids. He was a family man. His family came first.”
London and Hussle share a two-year-old son, Kross.
His father, Dawit Asghedom, spoke about how his son united South Central L.A through his music and community service.
“It was like he was sent by God to give some love to bring us together because that’s what his lyrics were saying, always. He’s not shy to tell the truth even though it might not look good. He wasn’t scared of anything. [God] sent him to send a message.”
Angelique Smith, his mother, said she wants the 33-year-old slain rapper “to be remembered as a humble, spirited, respectful man who had, since his childhood, had an extraordinary and unlimited intellectual capacity.”
Samiel Asghedom saluted his brother for making it his duty to transform their hometown.
“There’s a lot of politics within the area that we grew up in, but he stayed the course and showed what he was about. He made something work in an area that was run-down, that people were scared to come to, and he turned it into a landmark.”
Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed on March 31st in front of his Marathon Clothing store in Crenshaw Blvd in Los Angeles.
