Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed on Sunday, and now his lead bodyguard is retiring from the business.

Nipsey was gunned down in front of his South Central Los Angeles store, allegedly by crazed gunman Eric Holder. When Nipsey was shot, he was with two friends - but NOT his lead bodyguard Jay Roc. 

Jay Roc is 6 foot 3, nearly 300 pounds of muscle, and trained to protect Nipsey. He may have been able to save Nipsey's life if he was there. But he wasn't.

You see, Nipsey gave Jay Roc the day off (a Sunday) so that he could spend time with his family. Unfortunately for Nipsey, he was without a professional bodyguard to protect him on that fateful day.

Here's Jay Roc - offering condolences to Nipsey's family, and retiring from the security field:

"I got the Babies and L forever I’m done with all this Shit I retire from being a bodyguard I love you HUSSLE THA GREAT," J. Roc wrote in his extensive caption.

"Never in a million years I thought I would be writing some shit like this ... we haven’t made a 100 Million yet ... we was suppose to grow old and I call u big nose shoot jokes on you all day," J. Roc wrote in another part of his caption. "[But] instead I’m here in tears writing this I wish I was there I would switch places with you any day the world need you here I’m so confused , lost , hurt I lost a brother , best friend, a mentor all I can here you saying now is If it was me, I would tell you, "Nigga, live your life and grow."
