Nipsey Hussle’s family and friends said their final goodbyes on Friday when the late rapper was laid to rest.
The family including his parents, siblings and girlfriend Lauren London held a private burial service for Hussle, real Ermias Ashghedom at Forest Lawn Forest Lawn Cemetery in the Hollywood Hills.
The family wore all black as they said goodbye to their son, brother, father, relative, lover and friend.
London was flanked by her and Nipsey’s son, Kross Asghedom and her child with Lil Wayne, Kameron Carter, who shared a dream he had about Nipsey rising out of the ocean during Thursday’s celebration of life at Staples Center.
Friday’s funeral service culminates two extremely difficult weeks for Nipsey’s loved ones. Earlier that morning the family also gathered as the Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously to name the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and Slauson Avenue after the slain rapper.
Hussle grew up in the neighborhood and opened his clothing store, The Marathon, on that intersection, hoping it would become a hub of community rebuilding. It’s also the intersection where he was fatally shot outside the store March 31 at age 33.
Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson, who proposed the move, says in a statement it was an honor to recognize Hussle.
During the meeting the City Council also officially documented his legacy into public record. Nipsey’s gone forever, but he’ll never be forgotten in L.A.
