Rest in Peace Nipsey Hussle
A celebration of life for rapper Nipsey Hussle will be held on Thursday at Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles. California residents are eligible to reserve up to four tickets per household here beginning at 10am on Tuesday, April 9.
Pictures and/or recordings will be strictly prohibited inside the Staples Center during the memorial service.
The musician-turned-activist and investor was shot outside his Marathon Clothing store last week. Although he had been involved with gang activity before his rise to fame, the father of two was on a mission to rebuild his community and help change the narrative for the underserved population in his native South L.A.
The 29-year-old suspect, Eric Holder was charged with murder, including two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.
LA Police Chief Michel Moore said Holder got into a personal dispute with Hussle outside the south LA store, then left and returned with a handgun.
