Hours after Nipsey Hussle’s “celebration of life” memorial service on April 11, 2019, 34-year-old actress Lauren London, Hussle’s girlfriend revealed on Instagram a new tattoo of the face of Hussle she had inked on her arm.
Under the photo of her tattoo, she wrote “Real love will never die. When you see me, you will forever see him.”
Under the large Hussle tattoo, she wrote “God Will Rise.” Hussle had that phrase tattooed right next to his right eye.
London spoke at the ceremony which took place at the LA Staples Center which was filled by 21,000 people that Hussle was the love of her life.
She also read to the crowd a text message she wrote to the rapper saying: “I want you to know how I feel joy in my heart when I am near you. I feel very safe around you and protected. I feel like you are a shield around me when you are around. I can be totally myself and real when I am with you. You have made me into more of a woman. You have given me a real opportunity to love a man.”
London is not the only one who tattooed Hussle onto their bodies. Rapper The Game and NBA basketball player JR Smith had Hussle’s face inked on them.
Former President Barack Obama, Kanye West, and Drake all spoke about Hussle’s death. Donald Trump did not comment.
After the shooting, London wrote on Instagram: “I am feeling completely lost. I have lost my sanctuary, best friend, soul, and protector. I am lost without you here. We are all lost without you here, and no words can express how I feel.”
Hussle and London were together for six years and had a son, Kross who is 2-years-old. Hussle also has a daughter Emani Asghedom, from a relationship to Tanisha Asghedom. London has a son with Lil Wayne named Cameron Carter who is nine years old.
