Late Nipsey Hussle’s Only Son Looks Like Him in Childhood Posing with Meaningful Pendant on His 5th B-Day
Lauren London shared a photo of her and the late Nipsey Hussle's son, who looks like his twin, to honor the young blood's 5th year on earth. He rocked a meaningful pendant while posing in a cool and adorable manner.
Rapper Nipsey Hussle died in 2019 due to gunshot wounds he sustained outside his "Marathon" clothing smart store in Los Angeles. Before his passing, he left an imprint in the entertainment industry and made sweet memories with his long-time girlfriend, Lauren London.
London, an actress, had a son with the deceased. The young chap, who was 2-years-old when the tragedy struck, is his dad's doppelganger and his mom's youngest child—she already shares a son with Lil Wayne.

Although the actress loves to keep her matters private and seldom posts about her kids, she often celebrates Hussle via her posts and tries to keep his memory alive.
THE RECENT "BABY HUSSLE" B-DAY POST
Recently, she marked their son's birthday, sharing a rare photo of the celebrant posing in a cool way, in front of some curtain, drapes, with his head tilted and eyes partly closed.
It was an in-house shoot; the 5-year-old rocked an oversized shirt on striped pants and socks, looking similar to his dad during childhood.
For the big day, Hussle's mini-me wore a significant necklace hanging in between his chest— the pendant had his dad's face crested on it. The mother of two gushed on her baby daddy's lookalike by writing:
"Kross The Boss! My baby is 5. My Lighthouse! My Strength. Love. Baby Hussle."
WHO WAS NIPSEY HUSSLE?
Nipsey Hussle, owner of the record label "All Money In," was a young and talented rapper who began making a name for himself through his mixtapes, which sold at $100. His talent caught the attention of rap icons like Jay Z, who bought about 100 copies.
Before his death, Hussle released an album titled "Victory Lap." It made its way into the Grammys, nominated as one of the best rap albums in 2018.

The rapper gained the attention of his long-time girlfriend in 2013 after she purchased his mixtape. London followed him on Instagram, and they soon became inseparable.
The actress often gushed on her leading man during their time together, explaining that he had a unique and upright personality. They were never engaged but had the beautiful life of long-term couples—enjoying their love affair and parenting their son, Kross.
Sadly, all that ended after the Los Angeles shooting that claimed his life. On that same day, two others were injured, and Eric Holder was arrested two days after the incident.
London keeps Hussle's memories alive by commenting about his charming personality and upholding some of his values like fans and other family members.
