The Game Dedicates Heartfelt Poem To Nipsey Hussle And Lauren London

"Then & only then will you know that love in its purest form has a glow. It has a touch, it has a feel it can’t be undone it is God’s will."

Since Nipsey Hussle’s untimely death, The Game has dedicated a heartfelt Instagram post every day to his longtime friend. Recently, he wrote a poem honoring Hussle's partner, Lauren London. The poem is accompanied by a black-and-white image of London and the Victory Lap rapper together.

The Compton native named the post "Love Never Dies."

“Love never dies”. A poem I wrote for Lauren....... Soulmates are born Sometimes worlds apart As they grow, in life there’s a magnetic energy that pulls them closer & closer to one another This love knows no color It is blind When you find this love there’s a sign They say you can miss it if you blink It might pass you by if you think If by chance the universe aligns with those two hearts in the same place at the same time Then & only then will you know that love in its purest form has a glow It has a touch, it has a feel it can’t be undone it is God’s will Just as we’re lucky to have the gift of life finding a soulmate is living twice & though one day the physical must part this love does not live in the dark 2 souls forever bonded & unbreakable seal An everlasting strength A heart at the peak of eternal bliss The feeling you were born to know The life you were born to share The love that can never be replaced as you were created as a pair You & Nip found one another As some soulmates never do Now a picture in black & white will always be “Nipsey Blue”. #TheMarathonContinues 🏁 #OneNipPostADayTiliFadeAway

In another post, The Game shared an image of Hussle on a public bus where he captioned it with a message about seeking healing after the rapper's death.

"We all have to live with the karma that is attached to the energy we put into the universe," he wrote. "I wake up every morning fueled by the people who came here the day before to read & seek clarity as well use my page for therapy in some shape or form as they too were touched by the passing of Nip."

He concluded the post with an introspective thought about finding solace. "I give you my love & strength on this Thursday & hope that today is better than yesterday as we all deserve peace of mind & eternal happiness," he added. "My daily wish is that at least one of you is motivated to be a better version of yourself going into tomorrow. Keep up the good fight and understand, some days are darker than others but the light will always find you."

Hate, without it we wouldn’t know or be able to appreciate love. Love, the unstoppable power & one true expression of the heart in its purest form. I accept all opinions, good or bad... negative or positive & I will not be deterred from my mission no matter what’s written underneath my words, so speak as you may.... We all have to live with the karma that is attached to the energy we put into the universe. I wake up every morning fueled by the people who came here the day before to read & seek clarity as well use my page for therapy in some shape or form as they too were touched by the passing of Nip. I am driven by the strength of closest his friends, his fans old & new as well as his family who I talk to daily. I make these daily posts to honor my brother’s memory, his legacy & to do my part in the continuation of his marathon..... The words he spoke, the love he had for all & the dedication to the betterment of people as a whole should be studied & implemented into the hearts & minds of not only ourselves but the people around us. We are only human.... mistakes will be made... judgements will be passed & some days will not be as bright as others, but to understand that is to understand that we as individuals have the power to unify & force change. It doesn’t happen over night & trust the battle can’t be won with just words. We must act on our feelings, take leaps forward as we modify & transition from the ways of the past as they have only gotten us so far to this point. Look at life from different angles & better yourself as the days grow knowing that everything in your life starts with YOU. I give you my love & strength on this Thursday & hope that today is better than yesterday as we all deserve peace of mind & eternal happiness. My daily wish is that at least one of you is motivated to be a better version of yourself going into tomorrow. Keep up the good fight and understand, some days are darker than others but the light will always find you. #TheMarathonContinues 🏁 #OneNipPostADayTiliFadeAway

Tyler Perry Orders Independent Autopsy For Nephew Who Died In Louisiana Prison

Tyler Perry has hired a medical examiner to perform a second autopsy on his nephew’s remains after the 26 year old was found dead inside his cell at Louisiana's Union Parish Detention Center earlier in the week. Gavin Porter’s death was reported as a suicide but Perry and his family don’t believe that he took his own life.

Porter was serving 20 years for manslaughter after fatally shooting his father in front of his mother, Perry’s sister, over a “senseless argument,” the writer-director wrote on Instagram on Thursday (Feb. 27).

“The murder shook our entire family,” Perry shared. “Despite his horrible act, before he went to prison I went to see him in the local jail. I assured him that we all still loved him, but it was important to all of us, including his mother, that he was punished for this horrific crime that he committed. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

“Call me naive, but it was my hope that after serving his time, and really reflecting and showing much remorse and asking God for forgiveness, that he would have been able to come to work for me, joining all the other former inmates who work for me and turn his life around just as they have. But that day will never come.”

Officials told the family that Porter was placed in solitary confinement last weekend following a fight with other inmates.

“Three days ago, I got the horrible news that he allegedly committed suicide in prison,” Perry continued. “I say allegedly because, unfortunately, our criminal justice system and prisons have been notorious for cover ups and/or getting it wrong.”

Perry hired former New York City medical examiner, Dr. Michael Baden, who investigated JFK’s assassination, testified at the O.J. Simpson trial, and performed independent autopsies on Mike Brown and Aaron Hernandez, among others. The result of Porter’s second autopsy are expected “soon,” according to Perry.

The prison requested an investigation into Porter’s death and the alleged fight that occurred prior to his passing. “We respect the family’s right to request another autopsy to be done. This is not an unusual request.We are continuing our investigation and awaiting autopsy results,” a rep for the Union Parish Sheriff’s Office told TMZ in a statement.

Union Parish Detention Center has made headlines before over its treatment of inmates. In 2018, the prison settled a discrimination complaint for placing a detainee in segregation for six months because he was HIV positive. The following year, two prison guards were arrested for beating an inmate that complained about not getting a lunch tray. Another guard was fired and charged with malfeasance in office and simple battery for attacking an inmate “who was causing a disturbance” from his cell.

The lives of the NBA legend and his 13-year-old daughter were celebrated during a public memorial held at the Staples Center earlier in the week, where Vanessa eulogized her late husband and daughter.

The memorial included speeches from Michael Jordan and Shaquille O’Neal, as well as performances from Beyonce, Alicia Keys, and Christina Aguilera.

Dylann Roof Stages Reported Hunger Strike After Accusing Prison Staff Of Harassment And Abuse

Dylann Roof reportedly staged a hunger strike in prison  because he says he's being “targeted by staff,” harassed and abused.

The White supremacist mass murderer, who is on death row for killing nine Black parishioners at a historically Black church in Charleston, S.C. in 2015 and is the first person to receive the death penalty for a hate crime, sent a letter to the Associated Press earlier in the month accusing prison staff of mistreatment. Roof also alleges that staff feels justified because he’s “hated by the general public.”

Roof is imprisoned at Terre Haute Federal Prison in Terre, Ind. The 25-year-old killer was attacked by a fellow inmate in 2016. Roof now alleges that he has been the subject of unprovoked harassment and abuse and “treated disproportionately harsh.”

Roof launched the hunger strike after allegedly being mistreated by a Bureau of Prisons disciplinary hearing officer amid previous complaints over being refused access to a copy machine.

Roof’s allegations have yet to be verified. His lawyers are currently appealing his death sentence.

According to his letter to AP, Roof claimed that his hunger strike lasted “several days.” He ended the strike because he passed out after corrections officer tried to “forcibly” take his blood and put an IV in his arm.

“I feel confident I could have gone much, much longer without food,” Roof wrote in the letter. “It’ just not worth being murdered over.”
