During the debut episode of Angie Martinez’s new In Real Life podcast, Lauren London reflected on Nipsey’s funeral and shared the encouraging words she received from Diddy before she spoke to those in attendance.
“Somebody pulled me aside,” she said. Puff, Puff pulled me aside and was like, ‘Look, Boog, you have showed everybody what it looks like to hold a man down and to love him. Now show them what it looks like when it all crumbles. That’s your responsibility.'” She added of the funeral, “I just felt like it was surreal. I can honestly say God was carrying me through that cause I didn’t even want to get dressed. I was going to wear sweats.”
Lauren has not given many interviews since Nipsey’s death and sitting down with Angie just feels right to hear from her again. Angie announced her IRL podcast earlier this month and revealed the idea came about after she questioned the meaning of life following a 2019 car accident.
The podcast is scheduled to have six weekly episodes, with guests such as Mary J. Blige and Joe Budden stopping by to chat with Angie Martinez.
