A public memorial service for Nipsey Hussle will be held at Staples Center in Los Angeles this coming Thursday.
The late rappers family reportedly chose the 21,000 seat venue to accommodate a massive crowd that will be attending.
The service will begin on Thursday at 10 a.m PDT but doors will open at 8 a.m. It is scheduled to run for two hours at the arena. Guest are advised that they will be subject to a metal detector screening and bag inspection conducted by Staples security personnel.
Also they advise people not to bring cameras and recording devices inside the venue out of respect to the family.
Free tickets will be available but only for California residents.
The 33-year-old Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Davidson Asghedom was one of three men shot outside his clothing store in his native South Los Angeles. He was pronounced dead at the hospital, while the other two men are in stable condition.
The Grammy-nominated rapper released his first mixtape in 2005 but his musical influence is overshadowed by his work as an entrepreneur and businessman, and particularly his influence on his home neighborhoods in South Los Angeles.
He owned many businesses in the area and was renowned for his kindness to the community, giving jobs to struggling residents, donating money and clothing to a local elementary school.
