Famed singer Stevie Wonder paid tribute to Nipsey Hussle at a memorial service in Los Angeles Thursday where he called for better gun control in America.
Wonder, 68, took the stage at the Staples Center to eulogize Hussle, 33, who was shot to death outside his Marathon Clothing store last month. He was one of several stars including Snoop Dogg and Hussle’s girlfriend, Lauren London, to share kind words and performances in the late rapper’s honor.
Before singing “Rocket Love” and Eric Clapton’s “Tears in Heaven,” People reports that Wonder lamented the “heartbreak” of losing Hussle, calling it “so unnecessary.” He then called on lawmakers to take action when it comes to gun laws in the United States.
“We, to be a civilized nation, civilized world, we still are living in a time where ego, anger, jealousy is controlling our lives,” Wonder said. “It is so painful to know that we don’t have enough people taking a position that says: ‘Listen, we must have stronger gun laws. It’s unacceptable.'”
A "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" reality TV star has been indicted by a grand jury on several charges, including cruelty to children.
The seven-count indictment against Atasha Chizaah Jefferson, who goes by Tommie Lee on #LHHATL, stem from incidents that happened last year.
Jefferson was arrested twice in 48 hours in October after allegedly assaulting a student at Griffin Middle School and violating a no-contact order.
She allegedly grabbed a child by her hair and shoved her head into a metal school locker at the school on Oct. 16, the indictment said. The indictment also alleges she struck the child on the hands with a purse strap and slapping her in the face.
For those allegations, Jefferson was indicted on aggravated assault-family violence, first-degree cruelty to children and three charges of simple battery- family violence.
