Thousands are expected Thursday at Nipsey Hussle’s memorial service, being held inside Los Angeles’ Staples Center.
Although details around the service, which will honor the rapper born Ermias Asghedom, have been scarce, sources told ESSENCE that Atlantic Records, Roc Nation and his own label All Money In have been a part of the planning process.
Following his service inside Staples, a processional will be held throughout the city where fans are encouraged to pay their last respects.
Still, fans around the world can watch his memorial service via Tidal’s livestream, starting at 1 p.m. Eastern. BET is also streaming the service on their platforms, starting at 1 p.m. Eastern.
Hussle was murdered on March 31 at the age of 33 outside of his own clothing store, Marathon Clothing, in Los Angeles.
