Thousands expected at Nipsey Hussle’s LA memorialNipsey Hussle‘s parents have broken their silence over the rapper’s murder, saying their son was “sent by God” and not “scared of anything.”

His parents, Dawit Asghedom and mother Angelique Smith, remembered the Grammy nominee gunned down at age 33 as a “spirited” man, the Los Angeles Times reported.

“It was like he was sent by God to give some love to bring us together because that’s what his lyrics were saying, always,” Asghedom told the newspaper in a Thursday interview.

Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom, was fatally shot March 31 outside his clothing store in the Hyde Park neighborhood of his native Los Angeles.

The rapper reportedly talked back to his suspected killer, Eric Holder, after he was initially shot.

“He’s not shy to tell the truth even though it might not look good,” his dad said. “He wasn’t scared of anything.”

His mother said she’s been at “perfect peace” since the artist’s death, and the family encouraged fans to focus on his legacy as a community builder.

“I would like for him to be remembered as a humble, spirited, respectful man who had, since his childhood, had an extraordinary and unlimited intellectual capacity,” Smith told the newspaper.

Hussle’s family has worked with the Staples Center in Los Angeles to plan a massive memorial Thursday.
