Nipsey Hussle Granted BET’s Humanitarian Award
Nipsey Hussle’s mother accepted an award on behalf of the late rapper.
During the BET Awards on Sunday, Nipsey Hussle was awarded the Humanitarian Award. The Humanitarian Award is awarded to someone who has committed themselves to help a community or communities through service. Nipsey Hussle was fatally shot three months ago in Los Angeles, but the celebration of his impact on millions has not been forgotten.
Hussle’s family and friends went on stage to honor the rapper’s contributions to the community he served. Fellow rapper and friend of Hussle, T.I., recognized the late rapper and introduced a video to the audience that featured Hussle and his work. Alongside T.I., Hussle’s children, girlfriend, parents, and grandmother all joined the stage to take turns talking about Hussle and thanking Hussle’s fans for their continued support.
Other friends who paid tribute to the late rapper were musicians Marsha Ambrosius, YG, DJ Khaled, and John Legend. They all performed some of Hussle’s hit songs together to celebrate his musical works alongside his humanitarian efforts.
