Nipsey Hussle’s bodyguard is retiring following the rapper’s shooting death in Los Angeles.

In a heartfelt message shared on Instagram Tuesday, J Roc announced he’s “done” with the security business for good after his longtime friend was gunned down Sunday outside of his boutique, The Marathon Clothing. He was 33.

“I’m done with all this (expletive) I retire from being a bodyguard,” he captioned a series of pictures of himself guarding the rapper. “I love you HUSSLE THA GREAT.”

J Roc wasn’t with Hussle when the shooting took place on March 31, but wrote that, “I wish I was there, I would switch places with you any day.”
