The marathon continues! Nipsey Hussles friends and family are rejoicing concerning the recognitions the late rapper received on which wouldve been his 37th birthday. The rapper now has their own official day in the town of LA. During todays ceremony to get his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson announced that August 15th will be referred to as Nipsey Hussle day.
Councilman Harris-Dawson, who represents the Crenshaw and Slauson neighborhoods, spoke on Nipseys involvement locally before handing his grandmother Margaret Boutte the proclamation. Margaret was on stage with her granddaughter Samantha Smith and Nipseys father, Dawit Asghedom.
Once we previously reported, a lot of Nipseys family spoke out through the ceremony. His sister Samantha said the occasion was bittersweet.
Proud can be an understatement, she said. Nip the fantastic, look at who you’re, look at everything you did. Im in awe, but Im not surprised. Youve been a star in my own eyes, the familys eyes, Gods eyes, far prior to the accolades swept up. Youve affected the lives of so many in the realist ways the realist ways, the realist ways. Youve been a pillar inside our family, locally.
Lauren London, Nipseys longtime girlfriend and mom of his son Kross also took the stage. The actress, who’s also a LA native, said,
I believe I speak for the whole city of LA when I say that weve always known Hussle was destined for greatness. This moment only amplifies this for all of us. Nip wouldve been honored by this moment. She added, So whenever youre in the town of Angels, and you also see this star, I am hoping it encourages one to break from whatever may be holding you back and that you should run your marathon until God says that its finished.
Happy birthday Nipsey. May your legacy continue steadily to go on!
