Nipsey Hussle’s longtime friend and bodyguard is retiring following the rapper’s death.
On Tuesday, J-Roc reflected on his friend’s death and announced his plans to leave the security profession entirely in an emotional Instagram post.
Captioning a series of photos, he wrote, “Never in a million years I thought I would be writing some s–t like this … we haven’t made a 100 Million yet … we was suppose to grow old and I call u big nose shoot jokes on you all day… but instead I’m here in tears writing this I wish I was there I would switch places with you any day the world need you here I’m so confused, lost , hurt I lost a brother, best friend, a mentor all I can here [sic] you saying now is If it was me, I would tell you, ‘N—a, live your life and grow.’ I’d tell you, ‘Finish what we started, reach them heights, you know?’”
J-Roc ended the post by assuring his late friend he’d watch over his girlfriend, Lauren London, and his two children.
“I got the Babies and L forever I’m done with all this S–t I retire from being a bodyguard I love you HUSSLE THA GREAT,” he wrote.
The bodyguard is just one of many people in the hip-hop community and the rapper’s native Los Angeles who have reacted with dismay to news of his slaying this past weekend.
Nipsey Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Davidson Asghedom, was shot and killed in front of his Marathon Clothing store in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Los Angeles on Sunday evening. He was 33.
On Tuesday, the rapper’s suspected killer, Eric Holder, was taken into custody in Bellflower, California.
