Lauren London Delivers Touching Speech At Nipsey Hussle’s Celebration of Life Ceremony1 week ago by Amber Le in Trending
The passing of Nipsey Hussle has affected many and throughout the tears and disbelief, every person has sent their hearts out to his spouse, Lauren London. Everybody was able to witness how Hussle treated London like a queen as he was fighting to make a change in the world. When she took the stage earlier today at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, the entire nation was unable to hold back tears as she delivered such a touching speech.
Before her speech, she shared an old text message that she wrote in January. They dated for over 6 years and had their son, Kross in the year 2016.
“Ermias, I’m in bed with you while you’re sleeping and I wanted to tell you something. I want you to know I feel real joy in my heart when I’m around you. I feel safe around you. Protected. Like a shield over me when you’re around. I am totally myself with you (which is probably why I’m annoying) because I don’t wear a cool mask anymore lol. You’ve made me into more of a woman. You’ve given me an opportunity to really love a man. You’ve been with me while I’ve been sick. Through my fears. You have encouraged me and inspired me to reach higher. I’ve learned so much more about myself with you. You’ve been my turn up and my church. I wouldn’t want to go through this journey with anyone but you. I look up to you in a lot of ways and strive to educate myself more like you have. And when we’re at odds… I feel defeated and sad, knowing we are so much better than that.”
London spoke of how the late rapper would listen to audiobooks before bed and habits that he had that she adored.
“I’ve never felt this type of pain before but it lets me know that God is alive. His soul was majestic and he was the strongest man I’ve ever knew. He was gentle father, a patient leader and a divine light, he was brilliant. He researched everything, completely self-taught and constantly speaking knowledge. He would go to bed and listen to these audiobooks in his headphones and I would tease him but I really thought that was the coolest sh*t ever about it.
In the morning when he’d wake up, he played music for the kids, light his sage and burn it around the house to make sure our energy going outside would be uplifted and can handle the day. My pain is for my 2 year old who won’t probably remember how much his dad loved him. This is something I don’t really understand but Ermias used to say that you can’t possess people, you experience them and I’m so honored and blessed that I got to experience such a man.
I know everyone is hurting but I’d like to say something to my city of Los Angeles. We know what Nip did to us, we lost an incredible soul. We lost someone very rare to us and we lost a real one. We won’t ever be the same. But in Hussle’s words, ‘The game is gonna test you, never fold. Stay ten toes down. It’s not on you, it’s in you and what’s in you, they cannot take away and he’s in all of us. To Ermias, the love of my life, you know what it is. Grief is the final act of love. My heart hears you. I feel you everywhere. I’m so grateful that I had you.
I love you beyond this Earth. And until we meet again, The Marathon Continues.”
