(AllHipHop News) Rest in peace, John Singleton.
The well-respected actor and director passed away suddenly at age 51, almost two weeks after suffering a stroke.
The "Boyz N The Hood" director will be laid to rest at the same cemetery Nipsey Hussle was buried. The two men knew each other, both were born and raised in South Los Angeles, and did their part in giving back to the community.
