After Nipsey Hussle passed away on Sunday, March 31, his loved ones are finally speaking out about his tragic death. On Tuesday, April 2, his sister, Samantha Smith, paid tribute to the late rapper on Instagram.

“You are my heart. You are my strength, my wisdom, my joy, my balance,” she captioned a photo of herself with Nipsey on social media. “You are my superhero. Invincible to me. I feel so safe with you. I feel so covered and protected. Imperfections do not exist with you because you are flawless. I need you. I need you, please. Let me hold you again. You are my baby. To the world you are the strongest man and to me, you are the most vulnerable innocent child.”

She added, “Your heart is pure. They don’t know you like we know. Your love is expansive. Talk to me again. You’ve taught me so much. You hold me down through everything.”
