Nipsey Hussle's fans are crying foul after tickets to his "Celebration of Life" memorial service were gone within minutes of becoming available on a website Tuesday morning.

Fans took to social media to express their disappointment after tickets for the Nipsey Hussle memorial went live, then were gone after only minutes.

The Staples Center had announced a limited amount of free tickets (only 4 per household) would be available for “Nipsey Hussle's Celebration of Life,” to be held on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.

California residents were assured they would get tickets as long as they reserved their tickets on Axs.com early Tuesday morning.

But early bird fans who logged into the website on Tuesday were greeted by a notification that the tickets were already gone, The Blast reports.

According to TMZ, fans who weren't able to reserve tickets will still have a chance to see Nipsey's funeral procession, commencing after the memorial service. The funeral procession will travel about 25 miles and stop at neighborhood landmarks as it snakes through South L.A. immediately after the memorial service.

The family reportedly wanted to make sure those who aren't able to get into the 21,000 seat arena can still pay their last respects.

    21,000 seats gone in minutes. Wow!!

  • tintin

    never liked funerals and i wouldn't attend even if i could.

    this funeral is gonna be a mess.i still don't think they should have done this.

  • iWasteTime

    I know they said the audience can't record, but I hope it is streamed. I'd like to see and pay my respects too. This is still so surreal.

  • Yardgirl

    I hear some people are trying to sell their tickets for as much as $100 SMDH!!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. There's people on Craigslist right now selling them for up to $1,000 for front row seats.

  • MJF

    Smfh, not surprised. They either gonna resell them or they copped the tickets just to see other celebrities at the funeral. SMDHHHH

  • SpillyNillie

    I figured that would happen...

  • chan chan

    Everything is a hussle, that’s sick

  • tintin

    and people will buy it

  • tintin

    for real. goodness. see this is why it should have been private.i think this is all too much

    i just checked craigslist they're removing the postings that have the tickets for sale. Good!!
    People are sick man.

  • bemetoo

    I got 3 for sale

  • Gamer?? Chick

    RIP Nipsey, this is becoming a circus....

  • Gamer?? Chick

    Wow trying to profit off of a mans death and his family’s generosity SMH.

  • Gamer?? Chick

    Family should have just stuck with a procession through his hood.

  • Frank Blunt

    But wont go visit they auntie around the corner. This is the funeral drama po folks go through...just in a different financial bracket. The family should have kept it private PERIODT

  • Myopinion

    Why our people always gotta act like they ain't ever had nothing?

  • Myopinion

    They may have already had a private service for the celebrities or maybe after this one

  • Frank Blunt

    ???

  • The Art

    SMH... bots and re-sellers! If that arena is empty it will be because the re-sellers weren't able to unload the tickets that they snatched, which I'm sure someone somewhere is trying to sell. So damn disrespectful.

  • The Art

    The family should void ALL tickets and make the fans line up for first come, first serve entrance.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Some are mourning fans, some will be there for pure morbid curiosity and nothing more.. those people.. I despise. they know zero about the dude besides what the community has released and they want to be a part of the hype..probably couldn't recite one line from a Nipsey song..

  • Frank Blunt

    Exactly. Only those Mom and Dad could identify and Brother handpickung the extended family only PERIODT.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    This is why I say cremate my azz and I only want my family to celebrate me ... no one else ....shewt!!!

  • http://dateme-meetup.site/vsq0GSEpe7ds delmecasjohnson
  • Myopinion

    They'll probably have there own, but people loved him just like Big and Pac as you can see. I think it's appropriate but it's the people who are scalping tickets that makes it seem bad

  • WutizstillHERE!

    my pops did that. it was his kids and immediate family.. then he was cremated.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Bye demon!!!!! Sleez and I here you demons fawking animals more and more these days ..... keep your porn and that funk box

  • Myopinion

    They probably only had a certain number to give out from all those seats though.

  • The Art

    I feel you!! But, on the other hand he was a big personality who deserves a huge send off. I just hope that the family has a private service for the ones who really knew and loved him.

  • onelove

    should have been private

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I suspect there will be lots of people outside the arena that day willing to buy tickets to get in. That place will be close to full, I'm pretty sure.

  • The Art

    Sad thing is, you're probably 100% right.

  • ramosyo

    I got one ticket! By the time it dropped me from the que, no other quantity but one was available. Luckily my cousin also got one. Oh well I’m grateful.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I don't even really want da mortuary touching me chile ..... just burn my body ...... sprinkle me in GA grass ..... I ain't got time .... and it be too much on the family .... wakes and shyt ..... I don't want a wake ..... hell don't want a memorial...... shewt say couple of words ..... and tell me bye!!! Simple!!!!

  • tintin

    A couple i know unfortunately had to bury their daughter who died in a car accident with her speeding boyfriend. That mom and dad had the funeral service, burial and NO reception. He said i ain't have no celebration , i'm still in shock this is happening, i just want this funeral thing over.And that was it.

  • Rere

    I hope everyone didn't think they would get a ticket, lol.

  • Kimberly King

    I can definitely see people trying to sell their tickets. Maybe the family should have sold tickets at $50 and make all proceeds go to a fund for his kids or his charity or something. However, I do like the idea of the “victory lap.” Very dope for the community so they can pay their last respects to someone who meant a lot to them. Also, I wish some of y’all black people would stop that “the hood don’t love you” BS. He made a choice to stay in his neighborhood and that’s his decision. Moving by the white folks won’t guarantee you a longer life. When it’s your time it’s your time. Whether you live in the hood, a middle class neighborhood or some mega million dollar neighborhood, ya ass gon die. We all are. I respect his decision of wanting to stay where he was from and help those in need. I just hate the way he died. I don’t want anyone dying from murder. I wish we all could die from natural causes. It’s not right to take someone’s life like that. RIP Nip !!!!

  • Juliaquan C Spain

    Yeah unfortunately, as sad I know the family must be, I think a little bit much is being done here, I really never heard of tickets to attend a funeral...I don't think he would agree with this type of foolishness....but I'm certainly he would have the best home going service.....R.I.P. darling.

  • JENNYJONES1

    I THOUGHT THEY WOULD DO THE VICTORY LAP LIKE BIGGIE'S FAMILY DID FOR HIM AND EVEN SHAWTY LO THOUGH IT WAS TO HIS FAVORITE STRIP CLUBS BUT THAT WAS WHO HE WAS. NIP'S FAMILY, FRIENDS AND CITY ARE GOING ALL OUT FOR HIM WHICH IS BEAUTIFUL. I HOPE HIS STORE HAS BOUGHT A TON OF MERCHANDISE B/C I'M SURE THE REQUEST ARE HUGE AND THEY SHOULD STRIKE WHILE IT'S HOT B/C WE ALL NOW IF THEY DON'T SOME GREEDY PERSON WHO NEVER MET HIM WILL........JENNY JONES!!!

  • iWasteTime

    Here is my confusion.
    Aretha was laid out for 4 days, had 5 outfit changes and the last day was televised. The public was allowed to attend but I don't know how it was determined .
    James Brown had a very public, open casket funeral at the James Brown arena.
    Michael Jackson had a public Memorial at the Staples Center, I don't know how it was determined who was let in.
    Why can't Nipsey be honored in the same way?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile .... it's because of them I can't use my personal emotes https://staging.media.giphy.com/media/3o9bJX4O9ShW1L32eY/giphy.gif Ugh !!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    MY GRANDMOTHER DID THAT. WE HAD A SMALL LITTLE CEREMONY AND THEN A PRIVATE BURIAL BUT NO ONE BUT US KNEW SHE WAS CREMATE UNTIL THEY GOT TO THE CEREMONY. MY GRANDMOTHER SAID 'THOSE NIGGAS WEREN'T GOING TO COME JUST TO SEE HOW BAD SHE LOOKED'. LOL!!! SHE WAS A MESS AND WANTED HER REMAINS BURIED TO STOP ANY CONFUSION AS TO WHO WOULD GET THEM. LOL!!!........JENNY JONES!!!

  • exlurker

    Great comment

  • MJF

    A private service for celebrities??? Maybe you might be right, who knows.

  • Ghost

    Please just bury him and let the man rest! This is turning into a spectacle...smh.

    This is why I have everything in “writing” now! Too many emotions are involved with death....sigh

  • JENNYJONES1

    EXACTLY!!!!! ESP IF A HOUSEHOLD COULD GET UP TO 4 TIXS AND THEY GOTTA REMEMBER HIS FAMILY HAS THEIR OWN GUEST LIST, THERE HAS TO BE ROOM FOR THE STAGE SET UP WHICH TAKES PROBALY 1/4 OF THE SEATS LIKE A CONCERT AND WE DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH OF THE STAPLE CENTER THE FAMILY ACTUALLY NEGOTIATED TO GET. PLAIN AND SIMPLE YOU CAN'T SATISFY EVERYONE........JENNY JONES!!!

    Chile Aretha had costume changes and shoes on her crooked feet. James brown completed a chitlin circuit for bout 5 months. They drove all him all the country

  • Ebony Starr

    Is it General admission or assigned seating?

  • Renee26

    I hate funerals... I only attend those of close family members; never had the desire to attend. To each their own

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yeah, I figured Craigslist would do that eventually. But people are going to be wiling to pay money for those tickets, so I'm sure they'll sell well on the streets, or outside Staples on the day of the funeral. I'll just be glad when this is over with. This is becoming a spectacle now.

  • joel adams

    I’m still tryna figure out who he is

    His body is dead but his spirit is resting ?...

  • PhillyFacts

    I think because of security concerns for the amount of celebrities attending, and all the different gangs they want to make it as peaceful and quick as possible; because two hours isn’t that long maybe Staple Center has another event to prepare for...

    When they brought shorty lo, body back 2 the strip club, I thought that was crazy and ghetto. But 5 outfit changes take the cake. But to have that boy body run a marathon, From one part of L.A, to the other, is just crazy!!! That map looks long, these streets is what killed him, let him go” so he can Rest In Peace ??

    An hour or 2 drive is faaaar

  • NeverSurprised

    Why are people acting so ignorant? The man had millions of fans. If even a few hundred thousand signed on early to get tickets, the 21,000-seat capacity of SC would have been filled in seconds. Obviously!

    This man's family does NOT need the added stress of people complaining about not getting tickets. Just go line the procession route if you want to pay respects, and stop actin' a fool about not getting a damn ticket.

  • SunRiseBlossom

    PREACH!!!!!

  • Fire & Ice

    Not sprinkle you on the grass....STOP IT ???.

  • DeeFromLA

    It's not long at all. People in LA would see him in a lot of the locations on this map. With traffic it is better to wait for the processional to pass by than trying to get downtown to Staples. The same was done for Big. This city needs it right now, he was a big part of this community. It may sound strange to some who are not from here, but the different hoods will want to show their respects.

  • PhillyFacts

    Let’s address the elephant in the room please; whoooo “privately retained” Chris Darden for Eric Holder... (I trust nothing Roc Nation is involved in)

  • Renee26

    When I saw that photo with her feet crossed at the ankles I HOLLERED

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    chile ... simple !!!! lololol

  • Lady” Youngblood

    The Gold is always to get out the hood. Staying in the hood means staying in your own way! These streets don’t love nobody, either you’re in or you’re out. What’s going on in the streets will not pertain to me no more. If I already secured the bag I’m above this I have arrived. I’m going to do what I do like I’m doing it for T.v I’m boss now, And I will walk the walk and talk the talk, like a boss. You will not catch me in the hood giving it up with lo-life’s. I will return to my hood to give out free turkey,s to homeless people that don’t have no where to cook them. But if his mother feel like she wants to bring her son back home one last time, than that’s ok if that’s what makes her heart heal, Because if L.A. is out there like BROOKLYN was out there 4 BIGGIE she will feel the love.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    I don’t think many like Plmp monster! She has zero frens!

  • Michelle Peele

    Xxxtentacion was done a bit different. They had him at a hockey arena. He was laid out for about six hours. Folks stood online, walked in, saw his body and walked out. Family members were present. It wasn't a service. No lingering around inside and getting tickets. You were in and out. They had the funeral the next day for family and close friends.

  • Lady” Youngblood

    And with a dead body on top of that. Let his mother take him home one last time, and let him go!!!

  • missmiami305

    Lawd hammercy. I really hope folks gave him roses while alive.

  • missmiami305

    You’re speaking of LEGENDS. He isn’t in the same class.

  • Parent

    They should have just did the victory lap for the fans, just like they did with Big. Drive him around the neighborhood a few times so the people can pay their respects while bumping his music. That to me is a better memorial than this spectacle. Fans are not family. BIG's ride around was so amazing. It was so memorable and beautiful. Everyone was out. It was peaceful and we felt his spirit.

  • Reina1718

    & now they selling them after they got the free tkts smh

  • Reina1718

    Yesss i got to see it go rite by my job!

  • GuestSTAR

    I was reading where for the first time in 27 years crips & bloods came together over the weekend and marched together in solidarity, peacefully to Nipsey's store; where he was killed and a makeshift memorial was setup. The leaders of the gangs had called for a temporary ceasefire, stand down in honor of him.

  • Parent

    It was enough for the people. The people don't need a viewing or to be housed in a massive place to pay respects.

  • dontgetblocked

    Whoa! You put Nipsey, a little known rapper who was gang affiliated in the same sentence with legends who entertained longer than Nipsey lived? Really?

  • dontgetblocked

    Drive the nygga (no disrespect) around the hood a few times and call it a day. Doing too much for a little known rapper who was gang affiliated. Way too much! Wasn't nobody checking for Nipsey before his death.

  • Rere

    Right! You can't & hopefully don't try to satisfy everyone.

  • 11pink123

    Who do you know that is seeking them so that I can buy one?

    Or did you just make that up? Cause I been trying to find any for sale and can’t.

  • Kimberly King

    Thank you !!

  • 11pink123

    Ppl are silly. What do they want them to do, build a massive stadium and then bury him? or have 3 services?

    His family has done all they can possibly do for us. I am happy people are representing and showing how much he was loved.

    People have been out on Slauson and Crenshaw for 8 days.

    If Nipsey can sell a mixtape for $100 with no deal or promotion, I don’t know why they would be surprised free tickets to his home going would last more than 30 seconds. I already knew when there was a waiting room online before they went up I was finished. I just tried anyway.

  • Kimberly King

    Who’s “gold” is that ? Yours ? That ain’t everybody’s “gold” babe. Lol your comment made no sense. If you wanna pass out cold turkeys that’s loaded with fillers and cancer, then that’s on you. I’m not impressed. I live in a very nice neighborhood that’s far from the hoods in Houston. But that’s my choice. My point is who are we to judge how Nip wanted to live his life. The streets don’t love nobody and neither do your racist neighbors in the nice area. People are about themselves. It’s life. Nip lived his life on his OWN terms and that’s some King sh*t. Period. Now learn how to spell and use correct punctuation. Good evening.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I'm curious how much it costs to rent the Staples center? Who is paying for that? Seems like it could be better spent on a scholarship for his kids or another financially challenged child from the hood.

    I just sorry that we have Black men who can't communicate with words in 2019. The k1lling needs to stop in our community.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Wow...that's great. Let's hope that good spirit of community will last.

  • kiturner52

    Pleeeease STFU... and have a little respect for the dead!!! Everybody in LA was checking for him... aint nobody checking for yoe ass tho!!!!!!!!! #smfh

  • kiturner52

    That's exactly what they are gonna do.. driving him all around my city!!!! #LAFinest #LongLiveNipsey

  • LadyDujour

    Mad about tickets to the fune? They weren't thinking about tickets until they announced them online!!!! But tickets to a FUNERAL?!!! Ridiculous! do like Biggie have the fune with family and friends and ride around the city.. this is gonna be a debacle..

  • ImReallyCaitlynNotMelania

    Shut up already because you meant to be disrespectful. Other than his clothing store, he was part of a group that created Destination Crenshaw a museum honoring artistic achievements by blacks and he also invested in a co-working space in south LA called Vector90, that provides a place for youth to take classes in science, technology and math. He wanted to create a "Silicon Valley" in LA for the black youths. The list goes on! SMH!!!!

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Is That what happened?? I wondered why we changed to the stock photos.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Their are two Attorney’s that will never represent me under know circumstances one is Chris Darden,the other is Benjamin Crump

  • Logan Roberts

    I hope this doesn't become a circus. That's why it's important to marry, so you can have a say. Because if he was my husband none of this wouldn't have even went down. The fans would've had to mourn Nipsey through his videos.

  • 11pink123

    Hopefully his family launch something against his label and whoever else, so they can subpoena some bankstatements phone records and etc or whatever else, so we can figure out who is paying that attorney, and then we might get an understanding of who is really out here killing these celebrities when they don’t agree to they terms and conditions

  • Alextra Ballard

    I hope everything goes as planned. I’m willing tew betchu that somma those folks who were fortunate to get tickets to Hussle funeral ain neva heard one lick of his Musik.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Long live Nip ??

    It’s nice of his folks to include fans. God bless them and their healing.

  • Parent

    And that would have sufficed. Now you got people trying to make a profit off this celebration of life memorial. Takes away from his legacy.

  • currvalicious

    That's why we know they weren't legally married. If they were, she'd be calling the shots. And it more than likely would be family & close friends. I definitely don't think it'd be at the Staple Center.

  • currvalicious

    Damn!??

  • GuestSTAR

    That's what I was hoping.

  • Just Me

    Yes. I heard they was not married. I guess that one of the reasons to get married when you have kids and is in a long term relationship.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Ohhh... He still may do a nice scholarship in his name.

  • Lady” Youngblood

    If you get money and stay in the hood, you are now FOOD!! to everyone in your hood it’s like asking for death. A gated community will probably keep you and your family a lot safer. Or you can end up dead like Nip so if your hood means more to you than your two children, it shows a young minded person still trapped in there own way. Stay safe, and stay woke yougin

  • LadiiJayePlaysWithDaHouse$$$

    I really hope this is going to be a PEACEFUL celebration. 21,000 people..gang members...trolls...I pray this ends well.

  • abby500

    I agree. A funeral for Family and a few celeb friends and regular friends. Then a drive... Victory Lap.

  • DeeFromLA

    I'm guessing you have never been to L.A, it not the distance, it's the traffic.

  • DeeFromLA

    I'm happy you will be able to celebrate his life. I tried for my daughter and her friends, No luck.

  • abby500

    Ummm he deserves a nice homecoming, but did we just compare him to Aretha? MJ and Jam....????? Never mind

  • Renee26

    Well 25 miles in slow traffic will take even longer then

  • DeeFromLA

    It will be way bigger than Big's not sure if you are aware of the magnitude of respect this man has in this city. He owned 18 business' in the neighborhood. Literally bought back the block. Think most folks are thinking he is just a rapper. So not the case.

  • ImReallyCaitlynNotMelania

    There was a lottery in regard to Michael's Memorial at the Staples via email. There was an email set up where you sent your information. If you were picked, you would received an email to attend. A formal co-worker and her husband were selected to attend his Memorial.

    Thank you. However ordered the hit

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Sometimes you have to let ignorance wallow in ignorance. As long as WE knew what he was doing out here, other folks opinions don't matter. They want him to be who he was in his "past", when he was clearly living in the future.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Some did but he's still waiting on getting "bars" from some of these fake rappers who are sending all of this "love" now ?

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    That's the REAL question. Where did that long money come from because he's not cheap?

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Jesus... .when has a funeral been for fans and who are they to have an opinion on how this man is laid to rest. We are really an entitled species.
    fukk outta here
    rip NH

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    He's not even in that shell. He's still going through his transition.

  • Shamwow

    Or their selling them. Somebody is going to try something.

  • Lady” Youngblood

    This is the realest sh!t, I heard all day. You right

    Nip, I had genuine love for you and clearly so did A LOT of ppl. With all that has surrounded your death, there must be a bigger and brighter picture to this b/c this is beyond heart wrenching! I feel a sting at every post or article I see and read, can only imagine how his fam feels?????? Nip should just be put to rest peacefully. I can't lie, if I were LL or any other family member, this would make it harder

  • Kimberly King

    Exactly.

  • Sasha

    They're not giving their opinions, they are attending the service to pay respect. Fans are mourning a great loss too. Nip did a lot for the community... It's awesome that his family is allowing the fans the opportunity to pay their final respect. Nip's family isn't the first, and won't be the last to do this.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    "no disrespect", Well what did you REALLY mean, Do tell...and in the meantime..he may be a "little KNOWN rapper " to you, but this OBVIOUSLY shows how much YOU Did not KNOW about him...in which case it would behoove YOU to do your FACT checking and research ALL about him and his CAUSES, and ALL he has ACTUALLY FACTually done..And YES, to CORRECT YOU,there were many of US who were "checking for Nipsey BEFORE his death"....Have a Blessed Day.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    It's sad and disrespectful, and ignorant to say the least when people like "dontgetblocked" (LOL, BLOCK ME!) Speak on SOMEONE that they OBVIOUSLY do not KNOW anything about, we have to overlook the GOOFY ones after kindly putting them in there place!

  • BeUtFullSoul

    Exactly., so TRUE.but it just irritates me when people speak on someone and DON'T know ALL the FACTS!..Whew chiiiiiiile, it's just too much! I don't have the patience for the ignorant ones.

  • free

    are they going to stop the traffic, like a parade? should be a rolling stop.

  • free

    oh wow, i didn't know that!

  • Shamwow

    It surely does matter my cousin was in a bad accident and his girlfriend of 10 years was nothing without mom. The only reason she was able to enforce some kind of rule was with his mom. Then when he went to rehab for physical rehabilitation. Everytime I came in they had questions and decisions to ask me. I kindly told them to call his girlfriend they refused they wanted my opinion because I was his cousin and only visiting relative. ? I’m like common law my butt. He was loved just like Nipsey and had a long term girlfriend. But women and men need to just do what’s right and stop giving away perks for free. Buy real estate yadda yada what about being a actual husband and wife. That stuff matters r because when their gone your just a sad girlfriend/baby mother. Not a widow.

  • Shamwow

    Smh

  • iWasteTime

    I compared his services to theirs. People in here talking about "doing to much" but doing to much compared to ...

  • iWasteTime

    Says YOU!!

  • free

    it's in the death certificate so you're right. he has never been married.

  • free

    this happened to my dad. the nurses kept calling his girlfriend (of like, forever years) my mom because she listed herself as his wife. so when i got there, i was confused and told them my mom was not there. as soon as they found out, they ceased *all* convo with her. they got married after that lol, she must have put that pressure on.

  • joel adams

    Lord they compared nipsey to Jesus on fox5

  • Simone

    Thank you.

  • Shamwow

    This!!! My cousins girlfriend tried pressure but 6 years since then has passed and it still didn’t happen. smh their going on over 16 years smh unmarried. I guess the two kids is still enough.

  • EasyBreezy

    Say what? Jokingly?

  • 11pink123

    If you knew the Bible and actually understood it, it’s very clear that Jesus was using him and working in him. Then the way that he was murdered and his age only confirmed it.

    Per the Bible, some people who previoisly died resurfaced again in a different person. Like John the Baptist who was Jesus cousin but he was really Prohet Elijah.

    Jesus was really God in the human flesh.

    Nipsey real name Ermias which means sent by God, and he did not even know that until recently per an interview online. The Bible makes it clear that your name is important and he name a lot of people and or changed there name for different reasons.

    So it’s not extreme to say that Jesus was working within him, considering that his death United and seized gang violence in LA. Which was a major problem specifically in that area.

  • Ms. Cree

    All proceeds should go to the family. Period.

  • DeeFromLA

    All streets will be blocked, traffic detoured away from procession.

  • AllIN19

    Agree 100%.. One thing I have seen in him even b4 his death was a pure heart and that glow God gives his children on earth to do his work for others to see. His spirit has always glowed and shined bright well b4 his death. Thankful for a discerning spirit others saw it too, which is why it hurts so much.

  • free

    DAMN!!!! the two kids gotta make the decisions lolol

  • 11pink123

    Yes God opened my eyes on him out of know where 3 years ago. Before that I always knew of him and liked him, but the last 3 years has been obvious he was sent from God.

    And within the last 6 months he’s been on my heart heavily and I was lead to pray for him a lot prior to his passing.

    I’m finding out God was telling a lot of people to pray for him, even my pastor Fred Price Jr did about a year ago in front of the church, I just forgot until now.

    So everyone could see God was using him. I know he was in a gang but I’m glad we were not judgemental and seen pass that.

    Thank God!

  • PhillyFacts

    No statement that I know of; however on April 4th the LA Times reported “Prosecutor John McKinney said it was his understanding that Darden had been privately retained for Holder.”

  • Dez Nuts

    Well I hope they can at least ‘Go Live’ for the ppl living on the East Coast and wish they were there..

  • AllIN19

    (The right side) !!! Yes Lord, It gives you so much peace....

  • Shamwow

    ?

  • Fire & Ice

    Yes! She said that she was taking her three bereavement days. I'll never forget that call to this day ???

  • Fire & Ice

    I don't think Lauren wants this either. She seems to be private about her personal life. This seems like something his family and the "industry" wants

  • ImReallyCaitlynNotMelania

    It's obvious that he or she is oblivious (except when it comes to his or her #45) about Nipsey and what he actually stood for in his community and throughout Los Angeles.

  • ImReallyCaitlynNotMelania

    I have ignore him/she or it on other blogs regarding Nipsey but I just could not this time around.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy
