Watch: Private Service For Nipsey Hussle Complete With Fast Cars And His Crew

The rapper was laid to rest on Friday, after a celebrity-filled service at The Staples Center.

Nipsey Hussle's family and friends gathered Friday for a private funeral on a day when the slain rapper was also honored by his hometown of Los Angeles.

Hussle was buried at Forest Lawn-Hollywood Hills in an afternoon service.

The small ceremony stood in contrast to a giant celebration a day earlier of the 33-year-old Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom.

About 20,000 people flocked to a public memorial for Hussle a day earlier at Staples Center.

Afterward, thousands more lined the streets as the recently anointed hometown hero, his casket draped in the flag of his father's native country, Eritrea in East Africa, embarked on a 25-mile tour of the city.
