He and actress Lauren London shared a two-and-a-half-year-old son named Kross. Nipsey also had a daughter, Emani, from a previous relationship.
Nipsey released his latest album Victory Lap last year, which earned him his first Grammy nomination. He was also active in his community and was working to develop Destination Crenshaw, an open-air museum honoring African-American artistic achievement.
“I think that with me being influential as an artist and young and coming from the inner city, it makes sense for me to be one of the people that’s waving that flag,” he told the Los Angeles Times last year.
