In an Instagram video Emani opens her speech saying: "I want to begin by sharing my thankfulness for my mom for believing in me, and my dad, for always being there for me" Nipsey's daughter Emani said.
Emani’s graduation took place just two months since Hussle, 33, was fatally shot outside of his L.A Marathon clothing store. Nipsey's sister Samantha Smith took Emani in and they live together.
Smith took to Instagram and posted a photo from the graduation, showing her and Emani - who was pictured wearing her cap and gown.
Emani's 2 year old brother Kross Asghedom is also in the photo. Kross's mother is whose mother is the rapper's girlfriend Lauren London."Baby girl growing up," Samantha wrote.
In other Nipsey Hussle news, he was posthumously honoured at the BET Awards with the Humanitarian Award for giving back to the community.
