Nipsey Hussle had a clear profound influence on his community, fans, and close friends. Now his family is in search of a location that can seat anyone whose life is positively impacted to allow for them a chance to attend his funeral procession.


According to TMZ, venues that hardly hold 2, 000 aren’t cutting it. They’re looking to accommodate more than 15, 000 people for Nip Hussle The Great’s memorial service.

Possible ideal locations include The Forum in Inglewood, California, the Hollywood Bowl or maybe the Staples Center where Michael Jackson’s memorial took place.

The thousands of people who showed up to the candlelight vigil held in front of his store on Monday (April 1) demonstrate a clear need for a huge space. The vigil was all of a sudden disrupted however and caused the Los Angeles Police Department to step in and restore order.

Nipsey’s family is looking to secure a venue big enough within the next two weeks.

He is survived by his daughter Emani and son Kross, whom he shares with his longtime girlfriend Lauren London.


Nipsey’s alleged killer, Eric Holder, pled not guilty on Thursday (April 4) and is being held on a $7 million dollar bond. Eric is due back in court on May 10.
