What to Know: Nipsey Hussle Memorial



    Be the Toast of the Breeders’ Cup
    Staples Center
    This is the route expected for Nipsey Hussle's procession through Los Angeles on Thursday, April 11, 2019.

    Mourners are expected to pay their respects Thursday for a memorial for slain rapper Nipsey Hussle at Staples Center and officials are advising fans with tickets to arrive early and those without to stay away from Staples and L.A. LIVE.

    Doors to Staples Center will open at 8 a.m. A procession through South Los Angeles and Watts will follow the ceremony. All tickets have been claimed for the service.

    A procession is expected to carry the slain rapper's body throughout the South LA area, giving more people a chance to pay their final respects.

    The procession will travel roughly 25 miles, going from Staples Center through South Los Angeles — including a pass of Hussle's The Marathon Clothing store where he was killed — and near Ladera Heights before ending at a Crenshaw area funeral home.
