The final farewell for Grammy-nominated rapper Nipsey Hussle will take place April 11th at the Staples Center in LA.
Following his tragic death outside his clothing store and a peace rally that included a truce from many of the area’s gangs, plans for Hussle’s home-going service were made Wednesday. It’s a coordinated effort between the LAPD, Nipsey Hussle’s family and friends. The out pour of tributes and memorials from celebrities and fans alike, indicate that the service will be well attended.
It is reported to be a ticketed event. Security and LAPD will be on hand and much of the Staples Center support staff will be reporting to work to assist with the attendees. No word on a program as of yet but we’re expecting updates as the date for the service approaches.
Michael Jackson’s funeral was held at the Staples Center in 2009.
