It’s been reported that #NipseyHussle’s memorial service will be held at #StaplesCenter in Los Angeles, and given how many mourners Hussle has had since his passing, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the majority of the venue’s 21,000 seats filled. Now the Staples Center has confirmed the news, and that the event, Nipsey Hussle’s #CelebrationOfLife, will be going down on April 11 at 10 a.m. PT. #TMZ also reports that after the service, Hussle’s procession will take a 25.5-mile drive through #LosAngeles, passing by relevant landmarks along the way. #HHUCIT 🏁 The procession, which is expected to last for 90 minutes, will leave from Staples Center, and the most notable landmark the procession will pass is Hussle’s #MarathonClothing store, where the rapper was shot and killed. The procession will end at a #Crenshaw funeral home, and Hussle’s family reportedly said the reason for the lengthy drive is to give the community the opportunity to pay their respects to Hussle, especially if they weren’t able to go to the Staples Center service. 💙🕊🙏🏽

Tickets are reserved for California residents only and there is a four ticket limit per household. Out of respect to the family, cameras and recording devices will not be allowed inside the venue. Everyone will be subject to metal detector screening, visual inspection, and bag inspection.

Following the Clippers’ final NBA game of the season on Wednesday, the 21,000-seat arena will be set up to accommodate mourners during the two-hour event. Doors will open at 8 a.m.
Last week, it was reported that Nipsey’s family was looking for a venue large enough to accommodate his massive fan base and had considered The Forum in Inglewood before deciding on Staples, where Michael Jackson’s memorial was held in 2009.

Nipsey was shot and killed outside of his Marathon Clothing store on Sunday (April 1). His alleged shooter, Eric Holder, has been charged with murder.
