Lauren London honored the 35th birthday of her late partner, Nipsey Hussle with an emotional tribute in which she got candid about the void she felt since his death.

In March 2019, Nipsey Hussle met an untimely death when he was shot outside his Marathon store in Los Angeles, California.

Since his passing, his partner, Lauren London, who is also the mother of his three-year-old son, has been speaking out against gun violence. She has also been reaching out to families that have endured the same experience.


In June, London appeared on an episode of "Red Table Talk." The actress shared her story during the discussion on the effects of gun violence on women. She also shared the support she received from the families she has reached out to. London said:

"Trauma feels so lonely and just in talking to them, they gave me so much more than I feel like I gave to them."


Recently, London opened up to the public about her grief as she penned an emotional birthday tribute on Hussle's 35th. As she reflected on the year since his death, she wrote:

"The Spiritual Giant that walked Earth. 'I Miss You' will never be deep enough for the void left in my soul. Yet, I know you walk with me."


Along with London's heartfelt message, she posted a black and white photo of Hussle. The rapper's real name is Ermias Asghedom and in honor of his memory, London showered him with sweet nicknames.

She called him, "King Ermias," and said he was her "best friend" and "greatest teacher." London ended her tribute by signing off with, "eternally yours, Boogie."


London's fans and celebrity friends flooded her comment section with words of support. La La Anthony said, "such beautiful words...sending love today & every day."

A fan commented, "happy to your day King." Another person added, "Happy C-Day Legend. We miss you Hussle." Chaka Khan also expressed her admiration for Hussle.

Hussle's friend and former collaborator, Snoop Dogg honored him on Friday by debuting the song, "Nipsey Blue."

The song was sampled off the 1976 version of Dorothy Moore's "Misty Blue." The rapper made the special tribute by changing a few of the lyrics such as replacing the words "Misty Blue" with "Nipsey Blue."
