Rick Ross is honoring the life and legacy of Nipsey Hussle in a permanent way.

On Friday, the MMG boss went to Instagram to show off his portrait tattoo of the slain rapper. The piece was done by Katherine "Tatu Baby" Flores, the star of VH1's Cartel Crew. Tatu Baby posted a close-up of the unfinished ink in an Instagram photo captioned with some kind words for Nipsey.

"Life is not guaranteed, BUT THE IMPACT YOU MAKE IN PEOPLES HEART AND THE WORLD WILL LIVE IN HISTORY FOREVER!" she wrote. "@nipseyhussle you did that and your legacy will live and burn brighter than the all hate and envy!”

Rozay spoke about his tattoo in an Instagram story, as well as Nipsey's far-reaching impact.

"It's about what the culture lost. You know the young homie was pure, his heart was pure," he said. "And that's what it's about [...] Hopefully, Nipsey inspired some more young leaders."

Ross said he had known Nipsey for years, but had been communicating with the West Coast rapper shortly before his death, as he was to appear on the Port of Miami 2 project alongside Teyana Taylor.

Teyana shared a clip of the collaboration via Instagram on Thursday.
