March 31st marks the second anniversary of the passing of Grammy-winning rapper Nipsey Hussle. His music and influence have continued to affect many — including, not surprisingly, his longtime girlfriend, Lauren 

London shared a photo of the rap legend Wednesday on her Instagram, along with a special message.

“The Day Of Ermias’ transition changed the course of my life forever. Two years, and it feels like yesterday and eternity all at the same time,” London writes in the caption. “Grief and Healing have been constant companions on this journey. In Honor of His life and demonstration… May all of Heaven exalt your name for all you did on Earth and beyond. You are missed deeply. You will forever be. I love you eternally. Your Boogie.”

London described Nipsey as a “brave and beloved soul” who was and is still “loved immensely.”

Lauren London and Nipsey Hussle dated for five years until he was shot and killed outside of his Los Angeles clothing store, The Marathon, in 2019 at age 34. They share one son, Kross, and co-parented Lauren’s son, Kameron, and Nipsey’s daughter, Emani, from a previous relationship.

Nip’s friend and mentor Snoop Dogg also paid tribute with a Instagram video of himself dancing to Meli’sa Morgan‘s “Do You Still Love Me?”

“I wanna feel good today for my man Nip. I got this Nipsey blue on. Nevermind the tears, they’re tears of joy,” says Snoop, rocking a blue leather jacket and pant suit. “Get the whole attire, I’m with Nip today man.”

Sharing his own tribute post on Instagram, Nas wrote, “The king still shines.”
