Neighborhood Nipsey Getting Hometown Hero Homegoing
Neighborhood Nip is getting his hometown hero homegoing.
Late Monday afternoon announcements for Hussle’s memorial were posted on his social media accounts revealing that the late rapper will have his official services at the 21,000 seat Staples Center.
The venue is giving away free tickets to California residents only beginning Tuesday morning.
The Staples Center website also revealed that, out of respect to the family, cameras and recording devices will not be permitted inside the venue and failure to respect that request could result in being removed from the event. The website also revealed that procession information will be released soon for fans who are unable to attain tickets to Nipsey Hussle’s Celebration of Life.
TMZ is reporting that the procession will pass Nipsey’s Marathon Clothing store on a route that will cover 25 miles and includes much of South L.A.
Staples Center seems so appropriate — it’s one of the main venues where we saw him photographed most.
Sending so much love to all those who loved Nipsey.
