Actress Lauren London shares how she found “Courage” to Act Again after Nipsey Hussle’s Death


The actress reflected on her return to the big screen, and what she took away from the Netflix comedy she stars in with Jonah Hill — a Kenya Barris directed film.

Lauren London says her kids inspired her to ‘YOU PEOPLE’

You People’ Star reveals how she able to move on after the late rapper Nipsey Hussle’s tragic death.


The 38-year-old actress portrays Amira Mohammed on Netflix’s You People — which is currently the No. 1 movie on Netflix. The film revolves around two individuals in love who must reckon with family differences as well as societal issues that threaten their union. London recently sat down with Drew Barrymore to talk about how her kids, Kameron and Kross, inspired her to go back to work.


“When people’s lives are forever altered, how do they get up in the morning?” Drew Barrymore asked during the latest episode of her show, The Drew Barrymore Show.


“I’m very apprehensive with just working right now, just grieving still and just, you know, building a new life,” Lauren shared. “So, I’m very intentional on who I work with, and Kenya just created a really safe space. And so did Jonah [Hill],” the actress said.

Lauren London suffered unimaginable loss in 2019 when her longtime partner, Nipsey Hussle, was murdered outside his clothing store in South Los Angeles. He was shot and killed by Eric Holder. The two men were associates, and it’s reported that Nipsey said something that Holder took as an offense.


“Every day is different,” Lauren said of her life since Nipsey’s death. “So, some days you don’t want to [get up],” she shared. “You just want to lay there,” London continued.


Last year, Holder was found guilty of Hussle’s murder and is currently awaiting sentencing. Since his death, London has focused on maintaining his legacy and took a step back from pursuing her career.


The actress also revealed that her eldest son, Kameron Carter, whom she shares with Lil Wayne, encouraged her to get back to work.


“Every day is different,” Lauren said of her life since Nipsey’s death. “So, some days you don’t want to [get up],” she shared. “You just want to lay there,” London continued.

“My big reason is my children because they do deserve a really happy mom, and they deserve joy, and they deserve a house that has music playing and incense going and light coming in the windows,” Lauren shared of her inspiration to keep going in show business. “They deserve that,” the actress added.


“You know, when you lose someone, they’re on the other side wanting you to continue life, as well,” London further explained. “So, I just always think about what I know Nip would want me to do and what I know my children deserve. And what I deserve, too!”
