Amanda Edwards/Getty ImagesAs the hip-hop community continues to reel over the tragic death of Nipsey Hussle, the rapper’s legacy continues to be celebrated by his peers and others alike.
Sunday night, B2K, Lloyd, Mario and more paid tribute to Hussle during their Millennium Tour stop in Newark, New Jersey at the Prudential Center. In fan-captured footage, each artist is seen taking brief pauses during their sets to attest to the West Coast icon’s character and humility.
“I worked with Nipsey Hussle on his first album and on his first mixtape, and he was a really good brother and a good father,” Lloyd said to a roaring crowd. “And, we really need to stop killing each other and love each other.”
Mario shared similar sentiments, saying, “We just lost a future G.O.A.T., Nipsey Hussle. You never know when your time in this particular lifetime is up. You’ve gotta love the people around you.”
B2K asked for a moment of silence from fans as they paid their respects to the Grammy-nominated rapper, who they described as a “brother.”
As previously reported, Hussle was gunned down on Sunday afternoon in front of his Marathon clothing store in Los Angeles. A few short hours later, hundreds gathered where he was fatally shot to mourn the Victory Lap lyricist and honor his continuing support of the neighborhood.
He is survived by his two children, Kross and Emani, and longtime girlfriend Lauren London.
