Nipsey Hussle’s mother, Angelique Smith, addressed mourners in a video on Instagram, telling them that “Ermias was more beautiful in death than he was in life.”

She explained that after Nipsey had passed away, she said he looked peaceful, and Angelique commented that he looked like an angel. During the video, Angelique also told mourners, “When you live life and you have god on your side, when God dwells inside of you, you have no fear. Everything is in perfect order. Everything is in the divine perfect order of our creator. And we have perfect peace. I have perfect peace.”
