"A Phenomenal Vessel"

Nipsey Hussle posthumously won his first GRAMMY award for his “Racks In The Middle” song, which also features Roddy Ricch and Hit-Boy. Lauren London and Nipsey’s family accepted the award in his honor during the 2020 GRAMMY Awards on Sunday (January 26).


“I speak on behalf of our family … in honor of Nip, who was a phenomenal vessel,” London said at the awards ceremony. “Nip did it not just for the awards, but for the people,” Lauren added. “And God allowed him to use this music to speak his truth, give his wisdom, and something that we will forever be able to live with.”

Nipsey Hussle was murdered outside his clothing store, Marathon Clothing, in Los Angeles last March. The rapper, who was also the father of two children, left a legacy of service and continues to inspire aspiring artists to pursue their dreams.

Council member Marqueece Harris-Dawson recognized Nipsey Hussle as “a West Coast hero who spent his resources and his life giving back to the community.” It is because of Nipsey’s incredible service that the corner of Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard was deemed Nipsey Hussle Square by city officials.

Nipsey Hussle’s grandmother had a few words while accepting her grandson’s first GRAMMY award at this year’s ceremony. “I wanted to thank all of you for showing all the love that I have felt for him all of his life that will always live in my heart,” she said.
