Live Stream Nipsey Hussle Memorial "Celebration of Life"

Live Stream Nipsey Hussle Memorial

Lauren London put on a courageous face to attend the memorial service for her longtime boyfriend Nipsey Hussle.

Like Harden, many other National Basketball Association players have recognized Nipsey Hussle since the influential 33-year-old rapper and activist was shot and killed on March 31 outside of his clothing store in South Los Angeles. Under his portrait are the words, "God will rise". "You've given me an opportunity to really love a man. He told me it was paradise", Cameron said. "That's what Nipsey said", Parker told CNN. Cameron then asked the crowd to say "respect" in unison, and they complied. He said, 'What up, Killa?' because that was my nickname ...

"This is for Nipsey, y'all" she said as she tried to gain her composure before she began.

Hussle's two year-old son, dressed in a blue suit, was brought on stage in the arms of the musician's girlfriend, model Lauren London. It also included heartfelt messages from Rick Ross, The Game and LeBron James.

BET is also providing a live, commercial-free broadcast of the memorial, dubbed BET Remembers: Nipsey Hussle, in addition to live streaming the event on the BET News' Facebook Page starting at 10 a.m. PT. BET's coverage will be fronted by BET News host Marc Lamont Hill and entertainment news journalist Gia Peppers.

Los Angeles City Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson announced Tuesday that the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and West Slauson Avenue, which hosts The Marathon Clothing store, where Nipsey was shot, will be named Ermias "Nipsey Hussle" Asghedom Square in honor of the artist. The store will be one of the places where Hussle's casket passes during the procession through South Los Angeles.

The funeral procession is expected to take about an hour and a half, ending at a funeral home in Crenshaw, TMZ reports.

Holder has pleaded not guilty to one charge of murder and two counts of attempted murder.

The police chief declined to discuss the nature of the disagreement between Holder and Hussle but stressed the shooting appeared to be a result of that dispute, not any type of gang rivalry or feud. The former president praised Hussle's attempts to revitalize the gang-plagued neighborhood where he was raised, and where he was gunned down last month.

For a decade, he released much sought-after mixtapes sold out of the trunk of his vehicle, helping him create a buzz and gain respect from rap purists and his peers. Players admired him for his community building. The album debuted at No. 4 on Billboard's 200 albums charts and features collaborations with Kendrick Lamar and CeeLo Green.
