AceShowbiz - Nipsey Hussle's close friend and minder is quitting his job as a security guard in the wake of the rapper's sudden death.
The hip-hop star and activist, real name Ermias Davidson Asghedom, was gunned down outside his Marathon Clothing store in Crenshaw, Los Angeles on Sunday, March 31, and on Tuesday, his personal security guard, J-Roc, took to Instagram to pour his heart out over the tragedy.
"Never in a million years I thought I would be writing some s**t like this...," he wrote alongside a series of photos of Hussle.
"we haven't made a 100 Million yet ... we was suppose to grow old and I call u big nose shoot jokes on you all day... but instead I'm here in tears writing this I wish I was there I would switch places with you any day the world need you here... (sic)".
He continued, "I'm so confused, lost, hurt I lost a brother, best friend, a mentor...".
J-Roc went on to promise Hussle he would look out for the rapper's longtime girlfriend, model Lauren London, and their two-year-old son Kross, as well as the late star's daughter, Emani, from a previous relationship.
