Since then, he's been given tributes in many other events, such as the Grammy Awards among many others.

REMEMBERING NIPSEY'S FAMILY

Nipsey, known in real life as Ermias Joseph Asghedom, left behind his long-time girlfriend, Lauren London, and his two children, Emani and Kross.

Although he didn't leave them behind with nothing and they ended up with a hefty amount after their father's death, they will have to continue growing up without their loving dad who was close to both of them.

Despite this, the rest of the Asghedom family along with Lauren are trying their best to cope and do what is best for the two children.
