This will really melt your heart.

The son Lauren London and the late Nipsey Hussle share, Kross Ermias, celebrate this fourth birthday a few days ago and his aunt, Nip’s sister Samantha Smith, granted Kross’s wish! According to Sam, Kross wanted to take a picture with his dad, so she took a picture of Kross with an old blown-up picture of Nipsey holding him when he was a baby. Take a look at a screenshot captured by The Neighborhood Talk blog:

On Samatha’s Instagram, she penned a sweet birthday message to Kross and wrote sweet words for her brother Nipsey. 

“I see you I see my brother

I see you I see a strong warrior ready to take on a world and make your imprint 

I knew you before you got here! 

Connected to you in earlier lifetimes and I’m grateful to experience you once more 

Aunties baby 

I love you Kross the Boss Happy Birthday.”

Lauren London also wrote a tribute message:

“My Little Prince. 

Son of Ermias.

You Are Love. 

You will Soar. 

I am Honored to Be Your Mommy.

Happiest Birthday Kross The Boss.”

Nipsey was gunned down on March 31, 2019. His alleged killer is Eric Holder. Prosecutors say Holder shot Hussle in the head and torso outside Nip’s Marathon Clothing store in California. Eric was indicted by a grand jury on May 9, 2019, on one count of murder, two counts each of attempted murder and assault with a firearm, and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. His trial date was set for March but was pushed back due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the stay at home order at the time. 

Holder is awaiting trial behind bars and has bail set at $6.5-million bail. If convicted, he faces life in state prison. He’s was reportedly due back in court over the summer but things kept getting pushed back due to COVID-19.
