Nipsey Hussle's mother Angelique Smith just sent a powerful message about her son's death.
It's been 10 days since Nip was murdered in front of his Los Angeles clothing store. His memorial service will take place this Thursday at L.A.'s Staples Center, and the free tickets given away were gone in minutes. There will also be a 25-mile procession that'll go through his Crenshaw neighborhood after the service.
"I have perfect peace, and I have strength, and I want to lift you up," said Smith in a video. "Please do not stay down, do not stay stuck, do not mourn. Because Nipsey is great, and now he's even greater because he has no bounds and limits. His energy is everywhere. He's there with you now and he's here with me now. And pleased be encouraged. Death is not to be feared. Death is something to prepare yourself for."
