“Today we celebrate you, my beloved,” she wrote. “Today we honor you, king.”

“We are to live in our highest vibrations today because that is how Nip lived his life.

His purpose still lives on with us all.”

She went on to say that Nipsey “wasn’t a sad soul,” adding, “He was a powerful strong magical soul. Today is the day we lift up.”

“My pain is from a 2-year-old that probably won’t remember how much his dad loved him,” she said. “His soul was majestic. He was the strongest man that I ever knew. A gentle father, a patient leader, a divine light. He was brilliant. He researched everything, completely self-taught, constantly seeking knowledge.”

Kross also briefly took the stage, taking the mic and murmuring into it as the crowd responded with cheers. London spoke briefly, telling the crowd: “Give the kids some love, they’re a little nervous.”
