Nipsey Hussle will be posthumously honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The late L.A. rapper is among the Class of 2022 Walk of Fame recipients. The list of musicians also includes DJ Khaled, Ashanti, Black Eyed Peas, Avril Lavigne, and George Clinton, while Michael B. Jordan, Regina King, and Tessa Thompson are among the motion picture recipients.
Nipsey, who was killed outside his Marathon Clothing store in 2019, becomes the latest rap icon to be immortalized with a star. Other rappers on the Walk of Fame include Diddy, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, LL Cool J, Pharrell, and Queen Latifah.
On the second anniversary of his passing in March, Lauren London honored the father of her son Kross with a heartfelt tribute. “2 years, and it feels like yesterday and eternity all at the same time. Grief and Healing have been constant companions on this journey,” she wrote. “You are missed deeply. You are loved immensely. You will forever be. I love you eternally.”
Nipsey’s legacy lives on. Most recently, he can be heard alongside YG on the remix to “Memories” off Maroon 5’s new album Jordi.
