In Photos: Nipsey Hussle’s Celebration of Life at Staples Center

More than 20,000 people were expected to gather Thursday morning in downtown Los Angeles to remember Grammy-nominated rapper and philanthropist Nipsey Hussle.

The 33-year-old was fatally shot outside the clothing store he owned in South Los Angeles on March 31.

Nipsey, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom, used the store to empower his South Central neighborhood. He was slated to speak with the Los Angeles Police Department the day after he was killed about ways he could help stop gun violence.

On Thursday, fans flocked to Staples Center for a “Celebration of Life.”
