This is what a fan did to her hand and nails:


Around the time of his horrible passing, celebrities released freestyles in his honor. We reported the story, Keyshia Cole’s boyfriend Niko Hale along with others dropped some bars. 

For the 2019 BET Awards, they honored him with the humanitarian award. Nipsey was recognized for all of the community work he was doing and how he was on the ground actually bringing change. 

West Coast rapper The Game honored Nipsey in his own way by doing one post a day about him since he passed. Although since March it hasn’t been as consistent, he still does a post every so often to remind people how much he loved Nipsey.

#MarathonMonday 1st let me apologize for not posting last Monday. I got busy & forgot. Human error so do forgive me. It’s like that sometimes in life…. I put in on my heart to continue to inspire, at least with these posts every week & I got sidetracked with things in my own life that took me away from my duty to my fallen brother to keep his legacy & memory going. It’s been a whole 5 months & it still seems unreal to me as I’m sure it does to others. Not trying to open the wounds of those who may be healing from his departure but on my life I really feel in my spirit Nip is supposed to be here still. & with my niggas 34th bday approaching I want you all to understand that life is all too short to let a moment pass without appreciating it for all that it is. It’s the beginning of a new week & we all should be looking forward to the next moment life shows us how truly special we are. Just wake up tomorrow is all we can really ask for. & if we are blessed to see it, give love to our immediate family & thank God for every breath. I had a trying weekend but I’m back & focused on the things ahead that need my attention. Love to all of you…. I pray for your peace & happiness going forward #TheMarathonContinues #LongLiveNipseyHussle miss you bro
