We are just weeks from the passing of talented artist Nipsey Hussle and the world still grieves. As people say: “give your flowers while they are living”, the world has paid their respects in many ways. Breakfast Club host, Charlemagne Da God, gifted Lauren London a custom, gold piece made with a 3D printer to honor the memory of Nipsey Hussle. The highly detailed pendant was made by renowned jeweler Greg Yuna. The pendant featured Nipsey’s cornrows, his tattoos, and the words “God Will Rise,” which is what his birth name, Ermias, means in Eritrean.
The designer provides some insight into his motivations behind the pendant, saying: “I originally wanted to make a tribute piece regardless of being approached, but to make one with this purpose was even more fulfilling”.
