Late West Coast rapper Nipsey Hussle is going on one final victory lap. New details have emerged surrounding the hip-hop artist’s procession this week following his memorial service.
According to reports, the celebration will go over 25 miles in distance around Los Angeles.
Sources close to the slain rapper tell TMZ … Nipsey’s casket will travel to a few important landmarks, including his Marathon clothing store, where he was shot to death. All told, the procession will cover just over 25 miles as it winds through South L.A. following Thursday’s memorial service at Staples Center. Our sources say Nipsey’s casket will be at Staples during the celebration of life, and the funeral procession will start as soon as the service ends. We’re told Nipsey’s family wanted to make sure the community got an opportunity to pay respects along the route because most people won’t be able to attend the memorial. Staples only seats 21,000.
