As the hip-hop world and L.A. community languishes in devastation of philanthropic hip-hop icon Nipsey Hussle’s untimely passing, fans are recollecting his noblest and sweetest memories he left with us.
One of those moments happens to be the last picture that the Victory Lap rapper took before his passing. Posed adorably with a child (reportedly of a fan), Nipsey is pictured in a white T-shirt, white durag and red shorts beside the young girl. The photo was taken in front of his Marathon Clothing store where he would later suffer gunshot wounds that he fatally succumbed to. While it’s just one of several that Nipsey posed for with his supporters and fans of his Slauson Avenue neighborhood, many have now eulogized the photo as the truest physical resemblance of Nipsey the Great's spirit: a father, a community activist, and a leader of the people.
See the photo and fans’ memorializing words for it below:
BET continues to lift Nipsey's family in prayer and honor the legacy of Ermias Asghedom during this time.
