It’s been hard for me to watch the video, and listen to the song, but also, it’s very beautiful. When you see it, and hear it, you’re going to understand what I’m saying. It’s very beautiful because long live Nipsey Hussle, the Marathon continues.

    The Hip Hop community continues to honor the life of the late, Nipsey Hussle. Over the weekend, Charlamagne Tha God gifted Hussle’s long-time girlfriend, Lauren London, with a custom piece from renowned jeweler, Greg Yuna.

    “I originally wanted to make a tribute piece regardless of being approached, but to make one with this purpose was even more fulfilling,” shared Yuna. He goes further into detail about the process of making the pendant, “We made a ad and spent tedious endless hours on the computer trying to get as much detail as possible in so we can print it on a state of the art 3D printing machine. We finally cast it in gold and laser in the tattoos. The finishing touches included the hand-selected full cut diamond in his ear.”

    While Yuna has only met Nipsey once, throughout his career, he shares that he has the “utmost respect,” for the late rapper.
