Sources close to the slain rapper tell TMZ … Nipsey’s casket will travel to a few important landmarks, including his Marathon clothing store, where he was shot to death.

Our sources say Nipsey’s casket will be at Staples during the celebration of life, and the funeral procession will start as soon as the service ends. We’re told Nipsey’s family wanted to make sure the community got an opportunity to pay respects along the route because most people won’t be able to attend the memorial. Staples only seats 21,000.
