Rick Ross has honored Nipsey Hussle with a portrait tattoo on his leg, following the latter’s murder last weekend.

Celebrity tattoo artist Tatu Baby, a.k.a. Katherine Flores, shared a photo of her unfinished work on Ross, with the caption, “@nipseyhussle you did that and your legacy will live and burn brighter than the all hate and envy! #ripnipseyhussle.”

Ross and Hussle had known each other for years, but Ross revealed this week that Hussle was meant to be part of the Port of Miami 2 project, alongside singer Teyana Taylor. Taylor shared Ross’ story on her Instagram account.
