Lauren London Reveals New Tattoo Dedicated to Nipsey Hussle After Memorial Service

The grieving mother shared details of her own life, including that she'd survived a rough childhood and was also abused during her marriage prior to raising her sons as a single mother in the Crenshaw District of Los Angeles. "Nipsey really showed me that I could be anything I wanted to be". Nipsey always said: They can't take away what's inside someone, she recalled.

"I'd never met Nipsey Hussle, but I'd heard some of his music through my daughters, and after his passing, I had the chance to learn more about his transformation and his community work. When you see me, you will always see him". "I hope his memory inspires more good work in Crenshaw and communities like it. Michelle and I send our sympathies to Lauren, Emani, Kross and his while family and to all those who love Nipsey".

Kendrick's letter appeared in the funeral service program that was given out during Thursday's "Celebration of Life" memorial at Staples Center, along with tributes from JAY-Z, J. Cole, YG, LeBron James, Swizz Beatz, Snoop Dogg, The Game, DJ Khaled, and more.

The start of the memorial service for rapper Nipsey Hussle has been delayed. Doors to the arena will open at 8 a.m.in advance of the 10 a.m. ceremony.

A crowd of fans and mourners congregated outside the venue Thursday morning, with many wearing clothes that had images of Hussle on them. The rapper was gunned down allegedly by an old acquaintance named Eric Holder in front of his Marathon clothing store in South L.A.
