The rapper, entrepreneur and champion for the South LA historic "Destination Crenshaw" project was recently killed at his flagship Marathon Store located adjacent to the intersection that would officially be called "Ermias "Nipsey Hussle" Asghedom Square".

He added: "It was like he was sent by God to give some love to bring us together because that's what his lyrics were saying, always".

His mother Angelique Smith recalled her son's early years, describing her pride over her son's precociousness and book smarts. She adds that she will always remember the rapper, who she dated for almost six years, as the most upstanding man.

In a new interview with the Los Angeles Times, the loved ones of the famed rapper, whose birth name is Ermias Joseph Asghedom, are revealing how they are feeling over a week after his unexpected death.

Speaking on Tuesday, Los Angeles City Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson announced this decision, explaining that Nipsey Hussle was a strong supporter of the area's history. "(God) sent him to send a message". It came after the likes of Rihanna, Beyonce, and Kendrick Lamar all hailed Nipsey's talent in the wake of his death.

London, the late rapper's girlfriend and baby mama, also had some words to share about Nipsey.

"Join Us for the Celebration of the Life & Legacy of Nipsey Hussle".

Meanwhile, Lauren, who started dating the hip-hop star in 2013, told the publication that she's trying to "keep her head high" following his murder.

His service will be held Thursday at Staples Center and be followed by a procession through the streets of Los Angeles.
