On today (August 15), the late, great Nipsey Hussle was born. The rapper, who was clearly taken from the world too soon, would have been 34 years old. Family, friends, and fans weren’t able to physically honor the fallen rapper at his L.A. clothing store, but that didn’t stop them from flooding timelines with tributes to man who gave us so much more than good music.
To the day, it’s been four and a half months since since the tragic death of Nipsey Hussle. I think it’s pretty safe to say that the hip-hop world will never be the same. Though Hussle’s gone, his beliefs, teachings, and legacy continue to live on.
Today would have been the mastermind’s 34th birthday. Those who loved him dearly have been posting tributes on social media. Nip’s longtime girlfriend and baby’s mother, Lauren London, wrote an open letter to her late love…
Today We celebrate You my beloved
Today we honor you King
We are to live in our highest vibrations today because that is how Nip lived his life.
We should encourage and inspire today because that is how Hussle lived his life .
Today we should love and give truth because that is how He lived his life .
His Purpose still lives on with us all.
Ermias wasn’t a sad soul.
He was a powerful strong magical soul.
Today is the day we lift up
Long Live My other half
My beloved King
Nip Hussle The Great!
I miss you
I love you
Still here holding it UP!
Lauren followed up with another tribute to her love. “The King!” she wrote in the caption of a photo of a young Nipsey. Blacc Sam, Nipsey’s brother, also showed love to his brother. “Happy birthday Love you bro,” he wrote. The Game also posted a photo of Nipsey with the caption, “Up early thinkin bout you…. Happy 34th Birthday bro. The world misses you 🏁 #TheMarathonContinues.”
