- Los Angeles City Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson announced on Tuesday that the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and West Slauson Avenue in South L.A. will be named after slain rapper Nipsey Hussle. He has always known.

Nipsey Hussle's parents are breaking their silence on their son's death, two days before his memorial. She adds that she will always remember the rapper, who she dated for almost six years, as the most upstanding man.

Fans grieve at the site of Nipsey Hussle's murder.

Hussle, 33, was fatally last Sunday afternoon outside his Marathon clothing store in Hyde Park.

"It was like he was sent by God to give some love to bring us together because that's what his lyrics were saying, always", he explained. "(God) sent him to send a message".

Meanwhile, Lauren, who started dating the hip-hop star in 2013, told the publication that she's trying to "keep her head high" following his murder.

"He was a protector and wanted us to be our best at all times", she added. He was a family man.

TMZ reports that Nipsey's casket will make a final "victory lap" in honor of his last album around South Central Los Angeles before reaching the funeral home in Crenshaw for burial.

"Paramedics were called and [Hussle who was born Ermias Joseph Asghedom] was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m.", the coroner said in a statement to PEOPLE.

While conspiracy theories sprang up in the immediate aftermath of his passing, Los Angeles police revealed soon after that they had arrested a suspect, with 29-year-old Eric Holder being taken into custody over the artist's murder.
