Nipsey Hussle’s family, friends, and fans will gather to commemorate his life and legacy during his public memorial.
Thousands are expected to turn out for the “Celebration of Life” service at Staples Center in L.A. today (Thurs).
But those who are not able to attend can tune in to BET, who will broadcast the funeral service in its entirety beginning at 1 p.m. ET on BET and BET Digital.
Earlier this week, tickets for the memorial were distributed online and were gone within minutes.
The two-hour ceremony is expected to be followed by a lengthy procession that will travel roughly 25 miles across L.A. and past The Marathon Clothing store, where Hussle was shot and killed last month.
Following his death, the beloved rapper and community leader will be honored with his own intersection at Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard dubbed “Ermias ‘Nipsey Hussle’ Asghedom Square.”
