Tidal will offer a free stream of the “Celebration of Life & Legacy of Nipsey Hussle” for members and non-members beginning at 1 p.m. ET on Thursday (April 11). Following the “Celebration of Life” at Staples Center in Los Angeles, Hussle’s body will be taken on a 25-mile procession through the streets where he was raised and which he was trying to uplift when he was shot to death outside his Marathon Clothing store last month.
The public memorial service is expected to draw tens of thousands of people to the 21,000-seat arena, with thousands more paying their respects on the procession.
According to a program handed out to attendees, the memorial will feature performances by Marsha Ambrosius, Jhene Aiko and Anthony Hamilton. Karen Civil will read acknowledgements and resolutions, while Snoop Dogg, LA radio personality Big Boy and Nipsey’s partner Lauren London are listed with several other names under the heading “Family Tributes.” In addition to the Tidal stream below, the event will also be live-streamed on BET News’ Facebook page.
Eric R. Holder Jr., who has been charged with killing Hussle, has pleaded not guilty. Police have said Holder and Hussle had several interactions the day of the shooting and have described it as being the result of a personal dispute.
