Due to rapper Nipsey Hussle’s influence on hip-hop, it’s only right that his home going service be magnificent. It has been announced that the L.A rapper’s funeral will be held next week at the Staples Center, TMZ reports.

The venue, which holds 21,000 people, will host Hussle’s funeral on Thursday, April 11th, 2019. LAPD officers will be present to secure the event. In order to attend the funeral, you will have to purchase tickets. This isn’t the first time the Staples Center hosted a funeral for a major celebrity. Michael Jackson’s funeral was also held there back in 2009.

Nipsey Hussle, born Ermias Asghedom, was shot and killed on March 31st in front of his Marathon Clothing store in his hometown. The alleged shooter is Eric Holder, who recently plead not guilty to murder charges. Hussle was only 33-years-old and left behind his two children, his son Kross and his daughter Emani.

His tragic killing sparked a gang truce that led to a peace march through the Crenshaw district in Los Angeles. Gang members from Watts, Compton and Inglewood all came together to discuss ceasing fire and creating more unity to prevent more killings in the South Central L.A community.
