Nipsey's funeral procession will visit the neighborhoods and areas in Los Angeles that were pivotal in Nipsey's life.
Nipsey Hussle's parents have broken their silence after their rapper son was gunned down and killed in Los Angeles last month (Mar19). Two others were shot as well, but survived. "He was a truth seeker and truth speaker".
Meanwhile, Lauren, who started dating the hip-hop star in 2013, told the publication that she's trying to "keep her head high" following his murder. He was a family man.
The rapper's mother, Angelique Smith, spoke out about his death in a video posted to Facebook on Thursday. "We are lost without you babe - I have no words". "Please do not stay down, do not stay stuck, do not mourn, because Nipsey is The Great". Now, South Los Angeles City Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson has confirmed that the City Of Los Angeles will officially be renaming the intersection of Crenshaw Blvd. and West Slauson Avenue after the late rapper.
A petition to get the intersection named in Hussle's honor began circulating shortly after his passing with over 500,000 signatures to date. It came after the likes of Rihanna, Beyonce, and Kendrick Lamar all hailed Nipsey's talent in the wake of his death. Police on April 2 arrested Eric Holder and on last Thursday filed charges of murder and attempted murder against him, and now, he is being held on United States dollars 5 million bail. He has pled not guilty and has been placed in custody on a $5 million (£3.8 million) bail.
