Last night at the 2019 BET Awardswe honored the late and great rapper and community activist Nipsey Hussle with the Humanitarian Award in recognition for his many contributions to the African-American community.

The award was humbly accepted by his mother, father, grandmother, sister, wife Lauren London, and his beautiful children, Emani and Kross Asghedom.

Besides a touching video tribute, kind words from his fellow rapper friend T.I. and an amazing lineup of musical tributes by Marsha Ambrosius, YG, DJ Khaled and John Legend, fashion played a huge part last night as a method to pay homage to the “Hussle & Motivate” rapper.

Photographed heading on stage with Lauren and Nipsey’s 2-year-old son, Kross, the late rapper’s sister, Samantha Smith, glowed as she headed to accept her brother’s award. She chose to rep her brother in an all-blue handkerchief ensemble and completed the look with extra-long braids and stylish blue pumps.
