Last night (Apr. 2), Nipsey Hussle’s sister, Samantha Smith, took to social media to remember her late brother.
“I need you I need you please let me hold you again. You are my baby. To the world you are the strongest man and to me you are the most vulnerable innocent child,” Smith wrote as the caption on Instagram after sharing a photo of herself with Hussle.
“You gave me so much insight. We will talk every second of everyday and I am here to carry out your vision. Ermias God Will Rise. I love you forever and I will cry forever. You are my lifeline as long as I am here you are too.”
In the post, she also referred to supporting Hussle’s longtime girlfriend, Lauren London and their son, Kross, as well as Hussle’s daughter.
“You’ve taught me so much. You hold me down through everything,” Smith wrote.
“I got Lauren. I got Emani. I got Kross. I got Sam, he is my responsibility now. He is my big little brother. I got mommy and Granny and Pop.”
