In mourning of fallen hip-hop artist and L.A. hometown hero Nipsey Hussle, fans, family and friends of the Victory Lap rapper continue to keep his spirit alive through tender memories and iconic moments.
Nipsey left behind many relics of his legacy inside and outside of hip-hop. He spearheaded the Vector 90 investment for Black entrepreneurship, STEM program initiatives in inner-city locales across the U.S. and even his Marathon Clothing store on his Slauson Ave stomping grounds, which also happens to be the same location he snapped a famous keepsake photo with a baby fan in his last moments.
In light of the heartbreaking tribute posted by actress Lauren London, Nipsey’s love of five years and mother of his second child, Kross, more sentimentally cherished footage of the 33-year-old has surfaced, and is crushing hearts across the internet.
The L.A. rap star can be seen standing above Lauren as he bends down to exchange words with her at the bustling event. One of Atlanta’s star trap pioneers Jeezy can also be seen in the video standing beside the couple. Billboard reports that the night was filled with hip-hop camaraderie as fellow rap counterparts like Tyga, LL Cool J, 2 Chainz and Pusha T celebrated at the party with Nipsey and Jeezy belting out lyrics to hip-hop smashes like YG’s “Who Do You Love” and the Snowman’s “Soul Survivor."
Nipsey seemingly didn’t snap too many photos at the event, but the pre-Grammys celebration will certainly be remembered as one of his most treasured appearances among the love of his industry brothers and sisters.
