The Nipsey Hussle Celebration of Life

The Nipsey Hussle Celebration of Life

Tomorrow, Nipsey Hussle's friends, family and fans will gather at Staples Center to commemorate his life and legacy during a public memorial.

Attendees who were lucky enough to score free tickets are barred from taking video or photos during the service "out of respect to the family", the Staples Center said on its website.

Hussle's family is requesting for fans to refrain from bringing cameras and recording devices inside the venue. The intersection that he invested so much into as a businessman, who believed in economic empowerment, has been named in his honor: Nipsey Hussle Square.


Watch the memorial ceremony below. Local broadcast coverage and streams will begin in Los Angeles at 7 a.m. PT. The network will also be live-streaming the service on BET News' Facebook Page.

"We are deeply saddened by the passing of Nipsey Hussle. We will keep his entire family as well as our BET sister, Lauren London, in our thoughts and prayers during this immensely hard time". It will be followed by a 25.5-mile funeral procession that will run from downtown Los Angeles through Inglewood, South L.A., and Watts, traveling past the Marathon Clothing store, where Hussle was gunned down on March 31.

The funeral procession is expected to take about an hour and a half, ending at a funeral home in Crenshaw, TMZ reports.
