A variety of superstars paid homage to the homegrown rap star, who was shot to death on March 31.
As well as being named Best Male Hip Hop Artist, Nipsey also won the Humanitarian Award, with his family – his mother, father, grandmother, children and fiancee, actress Lauren London – accepting the prize on his behalf.
“I just want to thank you guys for all the love and support, and the marathon continues again,” an emotional Lauren told the crowd.
John Legend, DJ Khaled, YG and Marsha Ambrosius also performed a touching medley as a tribute to the late rapper, with Khaled shouting at the end: “Long live Nipsey Hussle. The marathon continues.”
Nipsey Hussle's mom also gave a touching speech about how she chased away the "spirit of retribution" from one of Nipsey's friends, and how she managed to maintain peace after her son's death.
