"Join Us for the Celebration of the Life & Legacy of Nipsey Hussle", read the Instagram caption of the memorial service announcement, which featured a photo of Nipsey in an all-white suit with angel wings. Those who are caught filming or taking photographs during the funeral service will be asked to leave.

Adam Andebrhan, co-owner of Marathon Clothing, will give the obituary.

BET News' Marc Lamont Hill and Gia Peppers will serve as hosts as "BET Remembers: Nipsey Hussle" will be presented live and commercial free. Now scalpers have been trying to capitalize off of Nipsey Hussle's death by selling the tickets for up to $500 bucks! "Nipsey is part of the BET family and first appeared on the Network in 2009 in a Hip Hop Awards cypher, we share this loss with his millions of fans around the world". "From his insurmountable talent to his commitment to reaching back to underserved communities Nipsey's kind spirit will be sorely missed".
