Always with her. Nipsey Hussle’s sister, Samantha Smith, paid tribute to the late rapper — almost threes month after his untimely death — by getting some new ink.
On Wednesday, June 19, Samantha wrote a poem about the dad of two on Instagram. “To my brother who is the key to life, to my brother who’s strength is unmatched, to my brother who is honorable, to my brother who keeps his word, to my brother who puts integrity before anything, to my brother who is the color of love,” she captioned a photo of Nipsey’s face tattooed on her arm. “To my brother who has the empathy and compassion of God, to my brother who seeks the truth and nothing less, to my brother who is who he says he is, to my brother who does what he says he will do, to my brother who has lived purposefully.”
She continued, “To my brother who always listens, to my brother who has the massive capacity to understand, to my brother who keeps me safe, to my brother who embraces the new and unknown, to my brother who has immense power, to my brother who dismisses fear, to my brother who lives in the spirit, to my brother who eternal, to my brother who is the trees and the ocean, to my brother who is his children, his mother, his father, his brother, his woman. To my brother who is me. I will step into the path you have created. I will find what you have found, and we will be at home again.”
Samantha concluded the lengthy post by saying she will never forget the kind of person her brother was. “FOREVER YOUR BABY SISTER/60TH STREET SAMANTHA. I LOVE YOU BEYOND WHAT LOVE ENTAILS,” she wrote. “Big thank you @imxtana for this piece. I’m filled with gratitude.”
Of course, many of her followers couldn’t help but comment on the work of art. One person wrote, “This is so fire. Amazing words,” while another echoed, “Wow, this is beautiful.”
The “Racks In The Middle” crooner died after he was shot at Marathon Clothing Store in Los Angeles. The Grammy nominee was only 33 years old at the time of his death. Less than 48 hours after the fatal incident, the police located the suspect, 29-year-old Eric Holder, and he was brought into custody by police on April 2.
We’re thinking of Nipsey’s friends and family during this tough time.
