Lauren London, the girlfriend of rapper Nipsey Hussle, took to Instagram to post a heartbreaking message about her late boyfriend.
“I am completely lost. I’ve lost my best friend. My sanctuary. My protector. My soul…. I’m lost without you. We are lost without you, babe. I have no words,” reads the post.
On March 31, Nipsey Hussle was shot “multiple times” in front of The Marathon Clothing, a store that he co-owned with his brother, Blacc Sam, located in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. Hussle was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
This is the first member of Hussle’s immediate family that has spoken out following his death.
