Nipsey Hussle was posthumously honored Monday with a Hollywood Walk of Fame star on what would have been the late rapper’s 37th birthday.
During the ceremony, Hussle’s fiancée, actress Lauren London, spoke and said that she hopes the star encourages others to live out their dreams.
“I think I speak for the entire city of L.A. when I say that we’ve always known that Hussle was destined for greatness,” said London. “Nip would’ve been honored by this moment. So whenever you’re in the city of angels, and you see this star, I hope that it encourages you to break away from whatever might be holding you back, and for you to run your marathon until God says that it’s finished,” she said.
Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed March 31, 2019 outside his Marathon clothing store in South Los Angeles. London’s children were 8 and 2 when Hussle died. “I was the one who had to break the news to them. No one could have done that for me. I had to do that,” the ATL star shared during a recent interview with Angie Martinez.
“In my previous years, I went to a seminar about death, and I learned that no one really dies and that it’s just an experience in the physical form and we’re attached to our personalities, and we’re just souls, and we continue on, and if you have a spiritual relationship with someone on Earth, you will have one with them when you leave Earth,” Lauren further explained to Martinez.
She continued, “It gave my language to talk to my kids about,” she said. “So, I say the words transitioned, and I always say, ‘Daddy is everywhere…he feels us, we feel him, and anytime there’s something you want to say, you might not hear him, but you’ll feel it, and follow that guidance and write letters or talk to him.’”
