Nipsey Hussle’s Sister Files for Guardianship of His Daughter

It's been almost a month since the untimely death of rapper and hip hop philanthropist Nipsey Hussle.

Emani's mom is a woman named Tanisha, who goes by the name Chyna Hussle.

Nipsey Hussle's sister, Samantha Smith, has filed documents to obtain legal guardianship of the late rapper's eldest daughter, Emani.

Kross, who is Emani's brother and Nipsey's son with Lauren London, was not included in Samantha's filing.

The Canadian TV legend also said that he has been receiving good thoughts, advice and prayers throughout his diagnosis. He will undergo another round of chemotherapy next week, followed by a review "to find out where things stand".

Emani's mother, Tanisha Foster, is listed as "not known at this time" in regards to her preference for Emani's legal guardian. She also dated the rapper for several years before welcoming their daughter in 201.1.

Sources say Samantha believes the child's biological mother is unable to care for the child. Even after Smith moved out, she continued to have "consistent and frequent contact with Emani on a weekly basis" including time during the week, weekends and overnight stays every one to two weeks, the documents state. Meanwhile, in Smith's tribute to Nipsey on April 2, she expressed that she will be there for Emani, saying, "I got Emani".

A judge has yet to rule on the guardianship petition.
