The Staples Center in Los Angeles released details of slain rapper Nipsey Hussle's star-studded "Celebration of Life" confirmed for Thursday, April 11.

Hussle, 33, was fatally shot outside his clothing store in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 31.

A flyer announcing the time and date of the memorial service was posted on Hussle's Instagram page on Monday. The flyer shows an artist's rendition of the "Double Up" rapper depicted as an Angel with large wings and wearing a white outfit.

The caption reads: "Join Us for the Celebration of the Life & Legacy of Nipsey Hussle."

The memorial service will begin at 10 a.m. sharp on Thursday and end at 12 noon. Doors will open at 8 a.m. Free tickets are limited to four per household and restricted to California residents only.

Tickets will be available on Axs.com beginning on Tuesday morning, April 9, at 10 a.m. local time.

Cameras and video equipment are banned during the service.

"Out of respect to the family, cameras and recording devices will not be permitted inside the venue. You may be asked to leave the event if you are found recording or taking photos."

Security will be tight and all guests will be subject to a metal detector screening and visual inspection of all bags by Staples security and members of the LAPD. Mourners are asked not to bring any backpacks of any size, or bags larger than 14" x 14" x 6".

    I'm sorry but I find this just plain silly!

  • Michelle Peele

    Glad they are finally having the service... Now, concerning that pic...

  • abby500

    Don’t like that photo at all. It’s corny.

  • Mrs Mary

    This is so very tacky. Should be a private ceremony and lay this man to rest peacefully. What do they have to gain from this?-

  • currvalicious

    Of all the pics he's taken. Where in the world?? The obit pic should've been fire.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I pray that people (gangstas) can put their differences aside to respect this young man and his family. I've been praying for his entire family since this happened because I'm sure their hearts are broken into a million pieces right now. Lauren was just talking about how their grandkids would view their photos from the photo sh00t. They planned on being together forever, and to have him snatched away like that, with no warning and no time to say "goodbye" has to have her in a complete brokenhearted daze right now. Smh. I wouldn't be surprised if she can't even remember his funeral. When reality sets in that he's not coming back (weeks, months and years from now) I pray that all who REALLY loved this MAN, are still there for them. Thry are going to need all the support they can get. I won't write what I dreamed last night but I will say that Nip is accepting that he's no longer here. He's angry but he's starting to understand what happened to him. RIP Nip!

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    No one in that family is thinking clearly. They just want yo get it over with.

  • Psychic Lulu

    Wow. Really? I find it silly that you don't get that he was an angelic gangsta' .. ?

  • Psychic Lulu

    Block me. Thank you.

  • Coy little wink

    I think he touched so many people they want to let them say farewell...its not tacky to me. I wanted to attend Prince's memorial but didn't. If you were touched by him/his music maybe you would understand...

  • Psychic Lulu

    I love you and thank you for this??

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Nice Photo .... Fly real High!!!! King!!!!

  • joel adams

    Oh he a angel now. Smh

    I’ll be back later to read the comments. lol

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Anyone going? I'm curious why it's restricted to Cali residents?

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Rip nip
    I dont do any LA event where hood ppl congregate. I hope all goes well

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I love you too and you're welcome!?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    RIP. Condolences to the family & friends.

    You're a smart girl, nothing but trouble and no need of subjecting yourself to dangerous situation.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Wow it must be getting bad in LA. My friend said the crime increased.

  • MsPam

    Yes Kcool Musicz will be there, he/she is going to carry the casket in/ out of Staples Center. # FORGIVEMEJEHOVAH# ????

  • Michelle Peele

    LMAO!!!!

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I'm just waiting to see the open casket pic ooops its way onto the net. It happens every time.

  • MsPam

    They’re not the only ones who want this to be over.

  • WinterIsComing

    With a fool smiling next to it

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    You know two fights are about to ensue and the damn ceremony still 3 days away.

    Omg ????

  • 11pink123

    Awwhh thanks Sandra for covering this so well. I will be there.

  • Dowoop

    And I think that's why they kept it Cali residents only because that's where he really touched. What I think is tacky is people who don't understand what he meant to some people judging other that he meant alot to. If he wasn't your cup of tea keep it moving. How he's laid to rest shouldn't bother them.

  • Dowoop

    I'll be waiting on your update after the service!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    2 hours Seem not to be enuf time I mean help u got ppl that blog about this man more than two hours.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Are you a JW?

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I peeped that too. BET's doing some tribute to Nipsey now by playing all his music videos. Hussle is the video and it's eerie to see him walking through his hood a la the same place where he was murdered. Jesus Christ.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    2 hours seems about right...almost too long. People have short attention spans. They get restless, start to talk and be disruptive. Start walking,etc.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    No audio/video equipment. So that means a photographic memory is needed. I'm thinking it will be closed casket, but they may surprise you all.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    RIGHT.

  • MNjumpoffacliff

    I'll continue to pray and blast my favorite song Double up. I hope all goes well like my MJJ ?

  • Coy little wink

    Yes...I mean just about all musicians have had public memorials...its not tacky its a gesture of goodwill to include the fans

  • Coy little wink

    Probably to ensure the people who really cared are the ones who get the tickets...i.e. the local community

    Black people, dont order tickets and you cant't get there.

    Talkn bout I'm about to get them tickets, but you in Kansas, NY, Texas and know damn well you can't get there.

    I don't do any events where hood people congregate!

  • dontgetblocked

    You're kidding right?

  • dontgetblocked

    A wise woman once told me that just because someone dies ...they don't become a saint. The true way to honor someone is to tell the truth. This picture does not reflect the truth. He was shot for calling a gang member a snitch. Regular folks don't run around calling people a snitch. That's terminology used by gangs/criminals. He died surrounded by ex-cons and gang members. He was a gang member and he died like a gang member. He knew the risks. His family and loved ones knew the risks. Why are people acting shocked?

  • Solstice

    See Ms. Pam you know what?!?! (Cries in Fantasia) ????????!!!

  • Solstice

    LMMFAO me too!!!

  • WhoKnew

    Ms.Pam ain't eva lied. That bamma Kcool Musicz is straight up delusional always talm bout he knows EEERRRYBODY and he has worked with EERRRYBODY. but don't neva produce no receipts. I think that MoFo is getting intoxicated/high on his/her own farts cuz something don't smell right about him/her.

  • WhoKnew

    It's true. Ms. Pam ain't lying.

  • Solstice

    ?????

  • Solstice

    No she is not!!! That’s crying in Fantasia!! ???

  • missmiami305

    I think it’s tacky and considering his horrific and untimely passing, the service should be limited to family and close friends. I am sure the family and friends will be a complete mess. I wouldn’t want to be in attendance for such an intimate moment. But, that’s just me. It has become a spectacle. https://media3.giphy.com/media/pSauCNBp1DcOY/giphy.gif

  • missmiami305

    I said the same. All that for 2hrs. Maybe the family is having a private ceremony and this is strictly for the public. Nosey folks are gonna be in attendance just because they want to be nosey.

  • Vonn

    ???

  • missmiami305

    Me too. Sorry not sorry ?????.

  • missmiami305

    I don’t like it. Reminds me of the pics on RIP shirts

  • joel adams

    Wendy Williams looked great today. Anyone notice how she tryna get that Emmy?

  • missmiami305

    Keysha Cole gonna be selling her dinners?????

    Let it be private then let the herse ride through the city.

  • What???

    Kodak Black may have a point hollerin at Lauren London right now. She likes thugs and drama so why not? It comes with her energy and she’ll probably be on baby daddy #3 in a hot minute. Can’t feel that sorry for her, bullets make her panties wet.

  • MsPam

    The word on the streets is Lauren is eight weeks pregnant. Don’t quote me.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Hey ???

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Could be but how without the public knowing

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I wonder will this be televised

  • Vonn

    She should try harder and tell us about the baby & Kevin's side piece situation, that may help her win an Emmy.

  • Love Luv

    I hope they don’t have him posed and standing up. I’ve seen a lot of that on the internet lately. Anywho, why are they serving food at a funeral? Seems odd and something just family would do in a private setting. Nonetheless I hope this fellow has found peace and comfort for his eternal journey. Many and much comfort to his loved ones, children, Lauren and especially his mother.

  • Allihave2say

    How did Nene get plastic surgery and end up ugly? She now has a beak nose, oversized nose, blotchy, scaly skin and no hairline or hair. She ran away from her old face and her hair did too.

  • Ni Ni

    That picture is awful. It looks cheap

  • Allihave2say

    The worse occurrence would be more gun violence at this venue. I hope folks can contain their emotions and show the world that they are made of more than poverty and bullets. They should have live streamed the memorial there as the family and close friends memorialize him at an undisclosed location.

    The murder is lucky to be in jail. I'm sure he's in protective custody there, as well as I see Darden standing in front of him in court for his protection.

  • Jussjess25

  • Allihave2say

    It looks as Nene is. Garbage rags in drag.

  • Allihave2say

    They are limited only to residents of California.

  • Jussjess25

    Agreed

  • Allihave2say

    The doors open at 8 am so it's a total of 4 hours. I think it should be a passing through experience. This will reduce the ruckus.

  • Jussjess25

    Exactly. There were many disciples in the bible who were womanizers and murders as well.. and God still accepted them. We cant discount some of the good he did in the hood as well. Rip nipsy

    Wow ? lawd have mercy no chill

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Two hours is plenty. Sometimes, less is more. Better that than some ridiculously long 7-8 hour service like what they did with Aretha Franklin.

  • And then there is that!

    That last part almost took me out. It let's me know his soul isn't at rest. He doesn't have peace?? that breaks my heart even more. I've been praying non stop for his soul and his family. Jesus please give them rest??

  • tia

    Aretha's funeral was a whole regular 8 hour shift that included a 'lil bit of overtime as well.

  • Miss Thang

    Ridiculous picture.

  • Nathan Hastings

    No thanx. These folks here in LA are too ratchet.

  • Eileen

    really bullets and panties...smh lol

    He was shot in the head at least twice. If his body is there, I'm sure it would a closed casket...........I HOPE :(

  • Daffanyrose

    Fellow?? What are you 80 yrs lol??

  • Daffanyrose

    Go shoot yourself

  • Harley

    He was assasinated. It was a hit by the LAPD. He had a meeting scheduled with them to discuss gang violence and finding solutions. The person who executed the hit was a known police snitch and hadn’t been seen in years. This was a hit. He and his crew were cleaning up the streets uniting folks and the dirty cops were mad. He was also buying property in a hood they wanna gentrify. It’s deepwr than that. We’re here in this town and see what’s really going on. And why would a common thug be “privately retained” by Darden. Damn y’all be sleep man

  • Marissa Mia Williams

    So people around the world who loved him can't pay their respect nor can they get a visual? No problem we do have the visual of him getting killed and kicked so lets just hang on to that. The family is so stupid.

  • Harley

    It’s been very peaceful here especially at his store where people are honoring him. The FOI and police are there and the gangs are uniting. Praying for continued peace and growth

  • Harley

    For all those judging and staying what HIS family should do just know they will have a private ceremony and CAN AND WILL allow the public to have a moment to honor this man as well. People love to tell others how to grieve and move in life. Let them honor their loved one how they deem necessary

  • Harley

    You are really a sad soul to call a family stupid for their decision on THEIR loved one..

  • joel adams

    I honestly think that drama is intentional to keep people talking about her. If it’s true you’re right. She should talk about it. Wendy fake af tho.

  • justlooking

    I cant...are they good though?

  • justlooking

    Mixed egyptian musk

  • Marissa Mia Williams

    Their loved one was s public figure, loved by many. It was the worldwide fans that made him who he was. To ban the world is STUPID.

  • 11pink123

    Did you consider that they understood that the tickets will be gone in 2 min or less when released and that they prob want to ensure that people won’t just be getting tickets for memorables but will actually be here and can go?

  • ZimSummer

    Heh heh heh heh heh

  • 11pink123

    Will do!

  • 11pink123

    Oh noooo I would never do Nipsey like that or anyone. I’m not a phone or picture person and if I was, I for sure would never disrespect his family like that after they opened they arms and welcomed the public when they did not have to.

    I will be sure to keep note how beautiful and peaceful it was?

    It’s been so much positivity between black ppl since his passing.

  • 11pink123

    Sandra on another note. Nipsey been having the same billboards up for a few months. They took it down after he passed, which I think is weird. So I’m wondering if the label was paying for those billboards. Then look at the one little forced and fake raggedy Instagram post they did for him. My gut is telling me Nipsey pissed someone off at his label cause they don’t even seem like they trying to capitalize off this. More like they was mad at him.

    Nipsey been talking about Jesus and pushing the Bible, instead of the gangster rap they was hoping for. All them ppl are Jews... I’m wondering how much control did they really have over his album. Then all of a sudden Joe Moses another label mate has resurfaced after Nipseys passing and they pushing him hard on the radio right now. But Joe Moses is currently pushing gangster rap and they are from the same area. I almost think that his label just saying bump Nipsey, y’all gone listen to Joe Moses the gangster rapper Nipsey was supposed to be.

    Just a thought.

  • Yui

    Just because he was a public figure doesn’t mean you or the fans own him. Frankly his family’s decision and their needs take precedence over yours during this time.

  • Meme

    She thinks he has to be a politician in a suit before he can be considered good!

  • Marissa Mia Williams

    He would be a nobody without the fans. When one lives a public life Privacy is a thing of the past. So screw his worldwide fans, only the Cali fans matter and no cameras allowed so the last image we have is of him being kicked in the head while dead. Brilliant.

  • WinterIsComing

    I thought it was The drug companies now it’s the LAPD? ?????

  • Soda

    "For fans that are unable to attain tickets to Nipsey Hussle’s Celebration of Life, information will be released soon regarding the procession. "
    The world can't fit into The Staples Center so other arrangements will be made for the viewing.

    Chile this man is a human not a damn prop Foh! ... Chile.... Nip is a damn human being ..... periodt !

  • MrsSpice1

    That gangsta was still a man with flaws like us all ?? and he was attempting to turn his life around while influencing others...and for that i hope and pray God forgives him for atleast desiring to do what’s right for all he touched!!

  • MrsSpice1

    Well that one rapper xxx casket pics never made it onto the net....arethas was leaked purposely but i dont think Nipsey casket photo will. the fact he was shot in the head they probably wont do an open casket...

  • MrsSpice1

    Regular folks dont run around calling ppl a snitch?!? Lol yes the hell they do....

  • T865!

    You’re a miserable person. Somebody failed you ?

  • justlooking

    he had just dealt with him.days prior.

    Darden took the case so he can get paid when all the TV movies, books...start rolling out.

  • justlooking

    I didnt want to go there.

  • justlooking

    I doubt it. Tjey gonna have mad photos and video.

  • Melanated Goddess??

    ?????? You beat me too it. That lying jackass claims to know everyone and they mama.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Why y’all in here mad about the picture? Mad about the venue? Mad about the family?

  • Kayke

    Was it tacky for Michael Jackson’s family to have it there?

  • NeverSurprised

    His community work -- opening businesses, providing jobs -- was primarily in Crenshaw.

    Basc math: The Staples Center has a capacity of 21,000. According to the last city esttimate in 2008, the population in Crenshaw was 32,234. For all of LA, the current population is approximately 4 million.

    His family knows that Cali occupied a special place in his heart. Please exhibit a modicum of respect allow HIS FAMILY to decide how his funeral ssrvices will be conducted.

  • SpiceGirl

    Folks just MAD!

  • WinterIsComing

    I agree with your first sentence. If a mofo was a piece of sh!t while he was alive, death shouldn’t put the individual in a better light. Your life’s works should speak for you. With that said idk if the man was an active gang banger but it does appear that he was loved by his community and at the time of death was trying to improve it and not destroy it. Did his past come back to bite him-it seems that way.

  • WinterIsComing

    Thank You! Darden is an opportunist.

  • WinterIsComing

    I hope folks are respectful of the family and if it is open casket for them to keep their phones in their pockets.

  • Marissa Mia Williams

    It's basic respect for the fans that made him the "legend" people claim he was. We have all seen a dead body, namely his all over the internet. So even if the venue cannot accomodate all of the fans(which it could if they put him in repose, and allowed a public viewing Mr. Math) cameras should be allowed so his fans can pay respect. After all, its fan money that's paying for the service anyway. Cameras were allowed at his shows and they were filming his death. Whats the big secret.

  • WinterIsComing

    It makes perfect sense to me for them to have it at the Staples Center and limit the tix to Cali residents-hell I could understand if they limited the tix to LA county residents. I understand them wanting to provide fans with a final goodbye and celebrating his work in the community. I hope there is no violence at the event.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    EVERYBODY with an ISSUE on How HIS FAMILY has chosen to go abouth this...Here's a little ADVICE for YOU!, Do what YOU do, How YOU Do, When YOU Do.!!!...until then, MOVE AROUND!, Worry about yourSELF!, DANG! Ppl, let HIS FAMILY do as THEY PLEASE.

    I so wish I could go. I wish Nipsey would jump out on stage like “SIKE! I WAS JUST TESTING YAL TO SEE IF YAL WOULD RIDE FOR ME—now that I got your attention—“ *drops Dr. Sebi documentary in front of an audience of thousands* ?.

    I know wishful thinking ??

  • EasyBreezy

    Did you check out how she told the camping story? Wendy is still such a liar.... She starts with Kevin & Kevin on the camping trip.... then somehow it went to all ladies on the camping trip. Wendy ain't slick, the wedding ring is still on, and she is still delusional as hell if she plans to "wait out," the side-piece. Tomfoolery. Loss of dignity. Loss of self-respect/self-love.... for all the world to see....

  • PetiteButterScotch

    My spirit keeps naggin at me..Lauren knew. Not trying to be disrespectful but I can feel it. Her connection to Diddy has always been strange even in the video with all of them listening to Nipsey finish his album. What are the odds they both would lose the love of their lives—then Cassie dips with another man—she don’t wanna be next. This industry is wicked as hell people....as harsh and disrespectful as it seems to feel such a way toward a grieving woman—I cannot help what my intuition tells me. And every time I ignore it I end up regretting it.

  • smartchickfl

    Why are you so angry though?

  • WinterIsComing

    It’s quite strange isn’t it

  • Tiff J

    I had to laugh when she said she was happy to have a show so she could tell her side of the story about that picture that was taken of her in Walmart.... I was like WELL.... can you use this platform to tell us the REAL deal about your husband's cheating. LOL

  • smartchickfl

    How would you know what's going on in that woman's panties?? Shameless I see.

  • Tiff J

    I think when and IF she decides to leave her husband, she's going to make a BIG SHOW of removing that ring on tv.

  • Tiff J

    So... is the service not going to be streamed live on BET, TVONE, MTV or Revolt TV? Even their online sites?

  • garrisonville

    I'm pretty sure it's mainly for his fans to come out & pay their respects. Family & close friends will prob have their own private funeral.

  • T Willis

    Please tell me you’re not putting Nipsey on the same level as MJ. This has truly become too much of a public spectacle. Let the family and close loved ones mourn him privately. If fans want to pay their respect then let them do it in their own way and on their own platform. The blogs shouldn’t be providing minute to minute coverage on Nipsey. It’s tiring. Black ppl die everyday from hood antics. Let the man rest.

  • morenYAHdelsur

That woman had NO idea her husband was going to be murdered simpleton. If she knew, why didn't she stop him from leaving the house? And you're right we aren't going back and forth because I have no time for stupidity. You reached my quota for the YEAR with this one.

    That is some goofy lookin' shit. I doubt he would be proud. I wonder how many people will be shot at this event,

  • Topic Influencer

    However his fam wishes to honor him is their choice. If you feel some kind of way over how families choose to do with their deceased then carry your ass own down to a locally black run/owned funeral home and pick a fam in there to direct your hateful ass comments too. Dont be just a keyboard gangsta. Go down there and do it in person and see if your ass gets straight stomped or nah.

  • Sircaput

    Wow, did you just have a whole conversation with yourself? The Staple Center ain't but so big so that is why it is limited to Cali, and why would you want your last pic to be of someone laying in a casket, if you don't want the murder to be your last image of him then change that by going to watch one of his music videos, easy fix!

  • Candance

    I think she had an intuition. Something about her.... I dont think she knew the day and time but I do think it was constantly on her mind. She had a calmness although she was crying, and usually that calmness comes from already knowing. She is a Sag... so I believe it. I knew something was going to happen to my husband 2 days before it did and i was going through it but able to stay calm because i knew... weird! Not everyone will understand where you are coming from.

  • Sircaput

    It wasn't the fans that made him what he was, it is obvious that he made himself who he was by his hustle and grind. You just got to experience someone who was already molded for success when he was born. Just be happy you got to be a part of it. But make sure you correct what you said you are the fans had nothing to do with the success of that man. That man had success because he had a good heart and love for his community and people around him long before the fans came around.

  • Grace B

    Shut yo ignorant,dumb ass up! Respect this King and keep your 25 cent opinion!! Its top security at the Staples center and no one would even want to put that negative fuccery out there if you loved your self! Let his family not regret sharing his laying to rest with his friends and people who looked up to him! I knew him and you should be ashamed of yourself! LONG LIVE NEIGHBORHOOD NIP!!

  • Rere

    It's some Hater's in these comments!! Just like in life!!! Y'all mad over what his family wishes are, y'all would be lucky if your family put you in a box or cremate y'all ass!! Hater's ??

    More like happy that you want to know more about me. xoxo

  • PetiteButterScotch

    Thank you Queen. She definitely knew. When I started to see the pics from their photoshoot, the pic with the white horse in particular bothered me. i didn’t like it. It was eerie. The pale horse is symbolic for death. I hated seeing it constantly being posted after he died. But something about that entire shoot didn’t sit right with my soul. I remember when he broke up with her and said they will still operate with love n respect. Then the whole “secret wedding” in mexico was a “binding” ritual. Nobody in hollywood operates without being attached to a witch or a handler of some sort.

  • Marissa Mia Williams

    Thanks for the thoughts.. .

    Clearly better than a conversation with you genius. Thanks for reading my response to a COMMENT scholar.

  • Grace B

    These idiots. Private ceremonies have already commenced. His father had an orthodox xhristian ceremony, denomination of his Eritrean heritage. Of course they will not share of all of that. As much as many of us loved him and knew. Its not NONE OF OUR FUCCIN business!! damn let ppl grieve in PEACE and how they see fit!!

  • Wile E. Coli

    Meh.. Still looks like goofy exploitation. And whenever that many blacks get together someone always gets shot.

  • Grace B

  • joel adams

    Oh gosh. If they drag this out like that smh
    I don’t get all the hype about Nipsey

  • Marissa Mia Williams

    Thanks for the thoughts AND the well wishes!! Enjoy your day also lovey. OOO!!

  • Grace B

    I have no malfunction because I am a human, who knew this man who uplifted this man in his LIFE not just in his DEATH. You are one of the many people who have no respect for the dead, let him be in peace. Don't discuss shit you have no clue about, and putting rumors out there about how his lifeless body will be propped etc. You have no couth, and its clear. Reducing him to someone who is just gang member is disgusting. I hope you have the same impact on your loved ones and you better pray that someone loves you enough to fight the faceless when they disrespect you. THIS IS FRESH. And people are still crying and praying like it happened yesterday. THis is not the type of grief that goes away in a week. WE REALLY loved this man and what he invoked in all of us...If you dont understand gang culture, LA culture dont comment. No one could understand until you educate yourself on the history of blacks in Los Angeles. PERIOD. NOW MOVE AROUND

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    I know this much several thousand black people are dead behind other gang members and that Mexicans are on the verge of taking over LA... GANGS ARE A SCOURGE ON THE BLACK COMMUNITY!!! They all need to be locked in prison

  • 11pink123

    Maybe you should become an English teacher so that you can direct that negative energy into a positive direction. Nothing is misspelled on there.

  • 11pink123

  • 11pink123

    SHUT UP!!!!!!! You are jealous, their is nothing more too it!

  • 11pink123

    You block them. So you don’t have to waste time reading the stupid shyt. They just trying to get ppl mad. They have no life outside of this blog

  • 11pink123

    Your intuition is wrong! Stop throwing salt in her name.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    You people are insane this guy was part of a cult that have killed thousands of people and because he had a store and gave a jobs he could have had ten millions stores that does not make it right!!!!

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    And like I said I could never be jealous of some body who feel into the “nigga” program of we all got to be savages and gangsters because that what “real niggas” do ... he glorified thuggism

  • 11pink123

    I was thinking that maybe it will give them closure to the situation as well to know that everyone loved him. He died for the ppl he was trying to help. That is something they have to live with. When they see that Staple Center Packed they will know, we loved him just as much as he loved us.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    You fools think ohhhh weee a gang that’s something cute and deserves recognition THEY ALL NEED TO BE PUT IN PRISON

  • 11pink123

    No he just lonely. And black man that can’t get no ?.. so he taking it out on Nip.

  • Marissa Mia Williams

    Thanks for the thoughts and well wishes!! Kiss, kiss, OOO

  • Grace B

    I know you are 1. No Black OR Brown. and if you are. SELF HATE IS REAL...READ A BOOK! You have a whole of opinion with no experience or credentials; evident with your ignorant ass words. And while you are talking about locking up black men...Do us all a favor and move to MAINE where you will have few black people to deal with. OK.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    So I guess it’s self love when black gangs are killing they own kind what do you call that

  • Grace B

    Pick up a book! Read something that will ACTUALLY expand your thoughts! I was passionate about telling you how ignorant you are, but I am at my office, a career Ive had for 10 years, editing my college freshmen cousin's paper on alcohol abuse ,printing labels for my niece for her prom goods, creating graphics for my other niece 12th grade project and going over my mother's bills for the month. I am helping my own, the ones who deserve my time. DONT @ me no more. Please leave me the fucc alone you judas ass Bitch. I am not the fuccin one.

    exactly. he is no protector. no black queen praiser, no father, no support to his own, just MISERABLE! havea good day 11pink123 Let them demons be

  • justlooking

    He is trying to get his just due.

  • Wildcat34

    I wouldn't be surprised if he has already been buried or whatever his wishes were. I believe most East Africans are muslim and its customary for them to be buried with 24hrs of death. However, I'm uncertain of his religious background and how his family would carry it out.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Haters galore!

    Nonetheless, rest easy NIP. Your deeds won’t be forgotten. Your spirit lives on.

    I heard Charlamagne say it feels like the solar system is missing something since he passed. That’s a relatable sentiment.

  • JENNYJONES1

    NIPSEY HAD FANS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, THE WORLD SO IT'S KINDA MESSED UP THAT ONLY CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS ARE ABLE TO GO.........JENNY JONES!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    I THOUGHT THAT AT FIRST TOO BUT HE GREW UP MOSTLY WITH HIS MOTHER AND GRANDMOTHER WHO IS CATHOLIC SO MAYBE NOT......JENNY JONES!!!

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Have you been hearing they was going to sit him in a throne also it on plenty of blogs

  • JENNYJONES1

    YOU MUST NOT HAVE SEEN THE VIDEO OF HER ARRIVING AT THE HOSPITAL. SHE AIN'T THAT GOOD OF AN ACTRESS........JENNY JONES!!!

  • Grace B

    He is Christrian and most ERITREANS are Christian Orthodox. He has not been buried yet.

  • JENNYJONES1

    IF YOUR MAN LIVES IN L.A., HE HAS MONEY, HE'S FAMOUS, HIS BUSINESS IS IN CRENSHAW DISTRICT, HE'S ALWAYS AT HIS GRANDMA'S THAT LIVES DOWN SLAUSON AVE THEN HELL YEAH YOU ARE CONSTANTLY WORRIED ABOUT HIM BEING ROB, SHOT AND/OR KILLED BUT AN INTUITION THAT'S A REACH. I GUESS YOU TOO DIDN'T SEE THE VID OF HER ARRIVING AT THE HOSPITAL. THAT WASN'T CALM, THAT WAS PANICK, HORROR.......JENNY JONES!!!

  • Trace da Ace

    well regardless....RIP Nipsey.....

  • SpillyNillie

    I agree that Sags are spiritually inclined and have a great intuition. It's still a reach to say that she knew. She probably had the intuition that he was gone once she made it to the hospital....

    Sandra, Tickets gone before they even went up for grab. At 10:00 am on the dot. It was like a lot of people want this event please wait. Then it was said “no tickets available”. Smh.... but I’m happy people love him that much. That’s all that matters.

  • Being bad is way more fun

    LMAO .. I hope they paid for extra time .. Its not going to start on time and wont end on time for sure !!!! RIP .. He was doing a great work.. Too bad people hate when we help our own !!!!!!!!!!

  • HoneyHitchcock

    The thought of his celebration of life makes me tear up. The funeral procession is supposed to travel through LA to landmarks and neighborhoods that were important to him. He will pass his Marathon Clothing Store. That thought alone breaks my heart. RIP Nip and thank you for all that you’ve done.

  • free

    TMZ has his death paperwork up and it says 4/11 burial in lake lawn or wherever those celebrities go.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    NEVER TOO LATE, you just expected me NOT to come back, I do not have to address your pettiness , your OPINION about a person and their LIFE is not relevant... and there is definitely a "way around that" and YOU. I hope that whatever it is that you aren't happy with in your life gets fixed, but on the other hand you probably THINK that your dusty insides match what you show on the outside....oh, and no need to RESPOND, your Response no longer MATTERS.

    How are they banning the world when they are having a WHOLE televised ceremony that will be televised?? They are NOT obligated regardless if he was a public figure or not. No one is obligated to do anything. The family had a private ceremony as they should and can manage the public ceremony as they please
