West Coast rapper Nipsey Hussle‘s closest friends and family had an opportunity to pay their respects to him before today’s Celebrate of Life service. New reports claim a secret event went down for people to view the late 33-year-old.

According to reports, the invite-only occasion went down yesterday and included relatives including Hussle’s brother.

Close loved ones packed the Angelus Funeral Home Wednesday afternoon on Crenshaw Blvd. Nipsey’s brother, Samiel Asghedom, was among the attendees at the super secret service. We’re told security was tight … several men had a checklist to make sure only invited guests — Nipsey’s inner circle — were allowed entry. (TMZ)

On Wednesday, TV network BET issued a media announcement providing exact time and streaming details for Nipsey’s memorial service.

Yesterday, R&B star Rihanna remembered Hussle’s relationship with his longtime girlfriend Lauren London.
