As many mourn the loss of Nipsey Hussle, his memorial service will be held this Thursday at the Staples Center.
It was initially reported that tickets would be sold to the service, and that fans would be able to attend. Those rumors were shut down by Karen Civil, friend to Nipsey Hussle. She also reveals that an official statement will be made regarding the funeral arrangements.
The Staples Center, located in Los Angeles, California, is where Michael Jackson’s memorial was held. The venue has 21,000 seats. The Los Angeles Clippers’ final regular season game will be held on Wednesday night, so officials expect the venue to be turned around pretty quickly for the service the next day.
We will keep you updated on an official statement regarding the service.
We are continuously keeping Nipsey’s family, fans and loved ones in our prayers.
I want to officially let @NipseyHussle fans & supporters know there will be NO selling of tickets to his funeral. A lot of incorrect information was released today, please know in the upcoming days and official statement will be made soon.
