After reports saying Nipsey Hussle’s family was searching for a big enough location to hold the huge crowd they expect to attend the lat rappers funeral, TMZ has reported they have made a decision on the location. Nipsey’s memorial service will be held at the Staples Center in Downtown LA. According to TMZ, the venue has 21,000 seats and the tickets for the memorial service will be sold online.
Nipsey’s passing was heartbreaking to a lot of people, who took time out to pay their respects since his passing last Sunday. The Unity Walk had gangs from all over LA walking the streets on Crenshaw to pay their respects.
“Nipsey was the first real LA. artist that was from L.A… not like Tupac who was from somewhere else and then L.A., and Biggie… Nipsey was the first like real L.A. artist to die the way he died. He didn’t have any conflict with nobody, he wasn’t beefing with anybody,’ community leader Big U said.
The late rappers memorial service will be held at the Staples Center on Thursday.
