Following the death of rapper Nipsey Hussle, his sister Samantha filed for legal guardianship of his daughter, Emani. Prior to the untimely demise of Nipsey, Emani was in his care. Today, the family had their first guardianship hearing and Emani’s mother, Tanisha was in attendance as well. Tanisha broke down into tears when she saw Emani, she claims she hasn’t seen Emani in months. The judge cleared the courtroom out for about 20 minutes to allow Emani and her mother to have some alone time together. Samantha believes Emani’s mother is unable to take care of her, which is why she filed for guardianship. Tanisha says although the child was in Nipsey’s care, she indeed was helping him raise her as well.

It hasn’t been confirmed if the store is closing for good or temporarily, but they are closing for now. Although, the storefront is closing the online site will still be up and running.
