According to reports, Nipsey Hussle’s sister Samantha Smith filed legal documents that asked for guardianship of the late rapper’s 10-year-old daughter Emani.

Sources close to the late rapper’s team believe Emani’s mother is not able to care for the child. Before the rapper’s life was taken in March, he was reportedly taking care of the 10-year-old. Smith noted that she has helped with taking care of her niece and that she wants to “ensure the continued stability for Emani and ensure that she will be able to maintain her current and ongoing relationship” with her late brother’s family.
