Nipsey Hussle’s legion of fans are preparing to say their goodbyes to the community activist, businessman, and “prolific” rapper, who was senselessly gunned down in front of his Slauson Ave apparel store, The Marathon Clothing.
Tens of thousands of people are expected to gather inside Los Angeles’ famed Staples Center and across a 25.5 mile span as close friends and family ride with Nipsey to his final resting place.
A private, invite-only viewing was held for those closest to Tha Great MC, where security was so tight that attendees had to check-in with various men to make sure they were part listed as part of Nipsey’s inner circle.
Several of Nip’s celeb friends – including Anthony Hamilton, Marsha Ambrosius, Snoop Dogg, YG, Big Boy, Jhene Aiko, and Stevie Wonder – are confirmed to be heavily involved in today’s ceremonies, according to TMZ.
The funeral service begins at 10 AM/PST, 1 PM/EST today.
