The love Lauren London has for her late life partner Nipsey Hussle has been memorialized in a new tattoo of the slain rapper. She took to her IG page to share a picture of the skin art and it is beautiful. It is a portrait of Nipsey, born Ermias Asghedom, above the words “God Will Rise”. The phrase was tattooed on Nipsey’s face and is the translated meaning of his birth name.
Lauren gave an emotional tribute to the love of her life during Nipsey’s Celebration of Life Ceremony at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. She shared a powerful text she wrote to Nipsey back in January of this year.
“I’m in bed with you while you’re sleeping and I wanted to tell u something,” wrote Lauren, opting not to wake up her man. “I want you to know I feel real joy in my heart when I’m around you. I feel safe around you. Protected. Like a shield over me when you’re around. I am totally myself with you (which is prob why I’m annoying) because I don’t wear a cool mask anymore lol. You’ve made me into more of a woman. You’ve given me an opportunity to really love a man. You’ve been with me while I’ve been sick. Through my fears. U have encouraged
The somber moment became especially poignant when she said, “My pain is for a 2-year-old that probably won’t remember how much his dad loved him.” As she spoke, the crowd offered support and encouragement. She ended her tribute with the motivational motto, “The marathon continues.”
