Jhené Aiko to postpone music release out of respect for Nipsey Hussle

This Thursday, Los Angeles will be united in honoring the life and legacy of Nipsey Hussle at the famed Staples Center venue.

Los Angeles City Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson announced on Tuesday that the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and West Slauson Avenue in South L.A. will be named after the late rapper.

As The Blast reported, tickets to Nipsey Hussle's memorial sold-out minutes after going live on the site, leaving several fans upset.

Lyft investors bail as Uber IPO prospect casts a looming shadow
Uber could finally start going public on Thursday-and the company hopes to achieve one of the biggest tech IPOs in history. In a regulatory filing , Uber said it will list its shares on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "UBER".

Nipsey's father, Dawit Asghedom, says their son was taken too soon but believe it is only because he completed what God put him on this Earth to do. Nipsey will always be remembered for delivering a pure, authentic Los Angeles sound, his numerous philanthropic efforts, his innovative, community-focused business mindset, and his humble heart. Security is expected to be tight at the event and "cameras and recording devices will not be permitted inside the venue", the public announcement for the service said. In the video, obtained by TMZ, a man is seen shooting and then kicking Nipsey before fleeing the scene. Cole, Drake and Kendrick Lamar have paid their tributes since the tragic day.

It transpired last week that Crips, Bloods, and other gangs in LA have gathered for a "unity meeting" in the wake of his death. He leaves behind a daughter, Emani Asghedom, as well as a 2-year-old son Kross Asghedon with his longtime partner, actress Lauren London.

Last week (April 4), a suspect was charged in Hussle's killing. He has pled not guilty and has been placed in custody on a $5 million (£3.8 million) bail.
