    Smith said her son, who was a community advocate for his native South Los Angeles and renowned for his kindness, appeared beautiful and peaceful after his death.

    Nipsey Hussle's mother shared words of encouragement with those mourning the death of her son.

    In a nearly nine-minute video posted on Facebook on Tuesday, Angelique Smith said death is not something to be feared and described how Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom, looked after he was fatally shot outside his clothing store Marathon Clothing, in Los Angeles on March 31.

    "I have strength, and I want to lift you up," Smith said. "Please do not stay down, do not stay stuck, do not mourn. Because Nipsey is great. And now he's even greater because he has no bounds and no limits. His energy is everywhere. He's there with you now and he's here with me now. And please be encouraged."

    Smith said her son, who was a community advocate for his native South Los Angeles and renowned for his kindness, appeared beautiful and peaceful after his death.
