The painful loss of beloved hip-hop artist and community altruist Nipsey Hussle is still piercing deeply in the hearts of those close to him, especially one of the people who spent close time with Nipsey in a literal sense: his bodyguard, J Roc.
Regrettably, J Roc announced that he’s throwing in the towel on his security career now that the Victory Lap icon is no longer with us — and can’t seem to shake the fact that he’s gone. “Never in a million years I thought I would be writing some sh** like this,” he wrote in his Instagram post dedicated to Nipsy. The mournful post highlighted some of J Roc’s best memories with him and the ones he planned on making in their future together, which have grievously disappeared, too. But his thoughts on Nipsey’s tragic shooting death may be the sorest spot of all in J Roc’s tribute.
“But instead I’m here in tears writing this I wish I was here I would switch places with you any day the world need you here I’m so confused, lost, hurt…”
Nipsey played a huge role much larger than rap in the lives of so many, J Roc acknowledged, including a brother, best friend and mentor. The words of Nipsey still echo in his head, he wrote, in which he’d say to J Roc, “N**ga, live your life and grow.”
“I got the babies and L forever,” he continued. “I’m done with all this sh** I retired from being a bodyguard I love you HUSSLE THA GREAT.”
Prayers are still flying high for Nipsey’s family, friends, fans and entire camp during this time.
