Dressed in a tie-dyed skirt and bright orange jacket, Smith went into a colorful account of the moment she showed up to the Marathon Clothing Store on Slauson and Crenshaw, the location where Nip was shot and killed on March 31.

Smith detailed the conversation she had with a police officer on the scene and revealed she’d had a spiritual experience before she left for the hospital.

“One of Ermias’s close friends was very traumatized,” she said in part. “I walked over to him and put my hands on his shoulder, and I told him, ‘Evan, look into my eyes, Evan.’ I said, ‘You know that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience, right Evan? You understand that, right?’ So even though our bodies die, as they call it on this side of eternity, our spirits lives.

“We lift out of this vessel and we continue on, and then I felt a spirit of retribution and revenge when I had my hands on his shoulder and I had to talk .. I was 100 percent present in the spirit and 100 percent absent in the body until I felt that spirit of retribution and revenge … I could tell I chased those spirits away from him.”

When Nip’s father approached the mic, there was an awkward moment when Smith tried to get him to speak closer to the mic, but he told her, “Do your thing over there.”

Of course, Twitter had its commentary and most were intrigued by Smith’s words.
