Lauren London is keeping her longtime love Nipsey Hussle's memory alive.
Hours after the 34-year-old actress said her final goodbye to the late rapper and activist, Lauren shared a heartwarming photo of her latest tribute to Nip — a tattoo of his face on her lower arm above the words "God will rise.".
"Real Love Never Dies," she captioned an Instagram photo of her tat on Thursday (April 11). "When you see me, you will always see him #LoveYouHussle #TMC."
Earlier in the afternoon, Lauren was the embodiment of strength as she stood front and center at Nipsey's "Celebration of Life" memorial service and shared stories of their love. "Never was I prepared for anything like this," she began her eulogy. "I had to write something because I've never felt this type of pain before. His soul was majestic. He was the strongest man that I ever knew," she explained of Nipsey, who she called her protector. "He was brilliant. He researched everything; completely self-taught and always seeking knowledge."
"My pain is for my two-year-old, who probably won't remember how much his dad loved him," she said of her and Nipsey's son, Kross. "I'm so honored and blessed that I got to experience such a man."
"We lost an incredible soul. We lost a real one. We won't ever be the same," Lauren added. "But in Hussle's words, 'The game is going to test you, never fold. What's in you, they can't take away,' and he's in all of us," she shared before concluding her speech with Nipsey's famous slogan, "the marathon continues."
Nipsey was gunned down outside his clothing store on March 31. His alleged murderer is currently behind bars and facing life in prison.
