Sunday evening, Nipsey Hussle was honored with BET's Humanitarian Award. It was T.I. who introduced the award before a clip honored the work of Nipsey, born Ermias Asghedom, in his native Crenshaw and beyond as industry contemporaries spoke of the west coast icon's legacy.
"He was doing the work of a peace advocate," noted Snoop Dogg. "He was actually uniting neighborhoods."
Afterward, the family of the later rapper, entrepreneur, and philanthropist took to the stage to accept the award on Nip's behalf.
