Lauren London delivers emotional speech at Nipsey Hussle’s memorial service

California

The moment so many had waited for happened when actress Lauren London took to the microphone to share her love of Nipsey Hussle.

The couple was together for more than five years and had one of the most enduring fairytale romances in hip hop.

“Never was I prepared for anything like this so bare with me y’all,” London told those gathered.

They shared a young son, Kross Asghedom, and it was also for him she said she mourned.

“My pain is for my two year old who probably won’t remember how much his dad loved him,” London said tearfully.

The actress shared a text she wrote to the rapper, whom she called “Hussle,” while he was sleeping on January 21 in which she wrote several loving sentiments, including, “I feel safe around you, protected,” and “You’ve been my turn up and my church.”

London included Los Angeles residents in her thoughts of Hussle who she called “majestic” because of how much he meant to the city.

She concluded her remarks with a message to the rapper.

“I love you beyond this earth,” she said. “And until we meet again, the marathon continues!”
