Nipsey Hussle’s Bodyguard Has Retired.

J Roc, Nipsey’s close friend and bodyguard, recently addressed his death on Instagram.

“Never in a million years I thought I would be writing some shit like this,” Roc wrote in his post. “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.”

He continued, “I wish I was there I would switch places with you any day the world need you here I’m so confused, lost, hurt I lost a brother, best friend, a mentor. All I can here [sic] you saying now is if it was me, I would tell you, ‘N*gga, live your life and grow.'”

Later on, he revealed he was stepping down as a body guard.

“I got the babies and L forever I’m done with all this shit I retire from being a bodyguard I love you HUSSLE THA GREAT.”
