Lauren London Remembers Late Nipsey Hussle
Actress Lauren London honors the late Nipsey Hussle on 4ᵗʰ anniversary of his passing.
Airmiess “Nipsey Hussle” Asghedom death devastated the music industry. Now four years after the passing of her late rapper boyfriend was shot and killed at 33 years old. The actress is paying tribute to the love of her life. Nipsey and Lauren began dating in 2013 after meeting on social media.
The Los Angeles native opened up in an emotional Instagram post on Friday (March 31), about how she dreads the date when Hussle was murdered in front of his Marathon Clothing store in 2019.
“I hold my breath all of March knowing I have to face the memory of the day you transitioned….Holding on to ancient wisdom but the pain is the pain and nothing was ever the same…Eternal Being Ermias Asghedom I Love You,” London wrote.
London then quoted a sacred text from Bahá’í, writing: “To consider that after the death of the body the spirit perishes is like imagining that a bird in a cage will be destroyed if the cage is broken, though the bird has nothing to fear from the destruction of the cage. Our body is like the cage, and the spirit is like the bird.”
London continued: “We see that without the cage this bird flies in the world of sleep; therefore, if the cage becomes broken, the bird will continue and exist. Its feelings will be even more powerful, its perceptions greater, and its happiness increased.
“In truth, from hell it reaches a paradise of delights because for the thankful birds there is no paradise greater than freedom.'”
The actress comments section was flooded with messages of empathy and support from Snoop Dogg, YG, Nia Long, Ella Mai and more.
Nipsey was fatally shot in the parking lot of his Marathon Clothing store in March 2019. Eric Holder Jr., who was later named as the suspect in the shooting, was ultimately found guilty of first-degree murder and other charges in connection with Nipsey’s killing.
Eric Holder Jr. was sentenced to 60 years to life in prison on Feb. 22.
