Dressed in a shimmery black suit by Pamella Roland, Lauren perfectly accessorized her look with a necklace that featured a photo of the late rapper taken at the 2019 Grammy Awards.
Sadly, the photo of Nipsey, born Ermias Joseph Asghedom, was photographed less than two months before his life was tragically taken at the age of 33.
Receiving the Best Rap Performance award on behalf of the “Grinding All My Life” rapper, Lauren spoke highly of the father of her child during the non-televised 2020 Grammy Awards pre-show.
"I speak on behalf of our family and in honor of Nip, who was a phenomenal vessel," Lauren said as she collected Nipsey’s first Grammy Award on his behalf.
Surrounded by his family, she continued, "Nip did it not just for the awards, but for the people. God allowed him to use this music to speak his truth, give his wisdom and something we will forever be able to live with.”
Nipsey’s grandmother Margaret Boutte added, "I wanted to thank all of you for showing all the love that I have felt for him all of his life and always will live in my heart. Thank you, thank you."
Honestly, we couldn’t help but be reminded the marathon continues when we saw Nipsey’s 11-year-old daughter, Emani Asghedom glowing in a stunning Gatsby-inspired gown.
Nip may be gone, but he will never be forgotten.
