On April 11 in Los Angeles remembered a great man, Nipsy Hussle. His memorial was held at the staples center where fans, friends and family gathered to celebrate the life of the late icon. Instead of mourning the loss of Nipsy, his memorial was a celebration of his life along with his achievements. Those who knew him remember all the good he has done for the world and therefore wanted to share his legacy with all.

In attendance was Snoop Dog, Stevie Wonder, Barack  Obama and many more. The ceremony began with Nipsy’s music playing through the speakers, as the audience had all arrived, the memorial had begun with videos and pictures of Nipsy along with celebrity’s who knew or worked with him during his lifetime. “I’m very happy that in his short life he was able to motivate people, and I hope that it motivates you to say, ‘Enough of people being killed by guns and violence” spoke Singer, Stevie Wonder.

Amongst those who spoke, was also Nipsy’s brother Samuel Asghedom, “Everything he said in the music is who he was. You stand up for what you believe in. You put your money where your mouth is. You never fold… I hope everybody knows thats what bro did. Bro stayed and died on Crenshaw and Slauson.”

It was a memorable event that then continued by driving his body across Los Angeles where fans lined up in front of his store”Marathon” to pay their respects. It was then reported that there was a total of four injuries and one death from the anxious crowds that gathered to pay their respects for Nipsy. It is still unknown why this event has happened, but with further evidence we hope to figure it all out. Rest in Paradise Nipsy Hussle. Image result for staples center
