Nipsey Hussle Memorial to Be Held at Staples Center

  /  04.06.2019

Nipsey Hussle’s family will honor him with a memorial service at Staples Center in Los Angeles this week.

Following the Clippers’ final NBA game of the season on Wednesday, the 21,000-seat arena will be set up to accommodate mourners on Thursday morning (April 11). According to TMZ, tickets for the event will be sold online. Only ticket holders will gain admission.

Earlier this 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.

On Wednesday, the 33-year-old rapper’s family reportedly met with Staples executives along with LAPD officials to coordinate logistics and security for the memorial.

The event, which is being pulled together in less than week, is a huge undertaking. Rental companies have already been contacted and ushers who work at Staples have been asked to reserve the day.

Staples Center is a fitting venue for the Crenshaw icon. Hussle, who was shot dead Sunday in front of his Marathon Clothing store, was often seen courtside attending Lakers games at Staples.
