(AllHipHop News) Los Angeles is preparing to host a memorial service for Ermias "Nipsey Hussle" Asghedom. The "Celebration of Life" for the Victory Lap creator will take place on April 11 at the Staples Center.
According to TMZ, a procession will also travel through South L.A. after the public funeral. The motorcade is expected to pass by Hussle's Marathon Clothing, the site where the 33-year-old father of two was murdered.
The procession is reportedly scheduled to take an hour and a half before ending at a funeral home in Crenshaw. Nipsey's family supposedly wanted the community to have the chance to pay their respects to the local music icon and business owner.
Asghedom was shot and killed on March 31 outside the Marathon store which is located at Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard. More than 478,000 people have signed a Change.org petition requesting the city of Los Angeles name the intersection Nipsey Hussle Way.
