Nipsey Hussle honored with posthumous star on Hollywood Walk of Fame
Los Angeles, California - The late Nipsey Hussle was honored with a posthumous star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
On Monday, the hip-hop legend was awarded a star on the iconic Hollywood Boulevard on what would have been his 37th birthday.
The ceremony was attended by the Marathon artist's family and his longterm partner, Lauren London.
Per USA Today, while addressing the crowd at the ceremony, London spoke about the late rapper, noting that he would have been "honored" by this moment.
"I think he would want everyone to remember that you can't get to what's possible unless you commit to moving forward," the Last Christmas star shared.
"That doesn't mean forgetting where you come from, but it requires acknowledging the reality you were born into and the power you have to change that reality for the better."
London, who shares son Kross with Hussle, concluded that she hoped anyone who sees his name on the star is "encouraged" to break free from obstacles that stand in the way and "for you to run your marathon till God says that it is finished."
Other attendees included Outkast member Big Boi and Los Angeles Lakers player Russell Westbrook.
On July 6, after a three-week trial, Holder was found guilty of first-degree murder nearly three years after Hussle's tragic death.
The California native, whose sentencing is on September 15, was also found guilty of two counts of attempted voluntary manslaughter. He currently faces life prison.
