It has been two months since Nipsey Hussle passed away, but the rapper is certainly not forgotten.

Saturday Night Live wrapped up its 44th season on May 18th, with Avengers: Endgame star Paul Rudd hosting and DJ Khaled acting as musical guest.

During his set, the “No Brainer” hitmaker paid homage to Hussle who was fatally shot while outside his clothing store in Los Angeles on March 31st, 2019.

Khaled appeared on stage at 30 Rockefeller Plaza wearing a sweatshirt that included the face of the late rapper who was known for songs such as “Double Up”. Hussle‘s face also featured during John Legend’s rendition of “Higher”, while Khaled concluded the show by declaring, “Long live Nipsey Hussle. The marathon continues.”

Legend was not the only famous voice joining the music producer. SZA, Meek Mill, Lil Wayne, Big Sean, Jeremih, J Balvin, and Lil Baby all graced the season finale of SNL.
