Nipsey Hussle's Celebration of Life starts at 1PM is about to begin at Staples Center, and BET, TMZ, TIDAL, ABC NEWS + MORE is livestreaming what's expected to be a very emotional memorial service. The slain Crenshaw rapper is being honored with a spectacular service in downtown L.A., where 21,000 people will turn out to pay their respects. The silver hearse carrying Nipsey's body arrived outside the arena early Thursday ahead of the ceremony.
As you know, the free tickets to his memorial were hard to come by this week, as they were gobbled up within minutes after they were made available to Cali residents. It's also a heavily guarded affair, with a mix of muscle from LAPD and Nation of Islam, as well as Staples Center personnel.
