Thousands showed up to Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles Thursday to honor rapper Nipsey Hussle, who was gunned down in front of the clothing store he owned in the South Los Angeles community he was dedicated to revitalizing.
Rapper Snoop Dogg and singer Stevie Wonder were among those who took the stage at the “Celebration of Life” ceremony, which was delayed by about an hour due
to long lines of people trying to get into the arena.
The event began with tracks being played from Hussle’s album “Victory Lap” and featured several celebrity speakers.
Toward the end of his ten-minute speech, Snoop shared a story about Nipsey’s business mind and creative vision.
Nipsey had repeatedly told Snoop Dogg to build an amusement park based on his likeness, and eventually, Snoop responded by asking Nipsey to just do it for him since he didn’t know how to do it.
Watch the full speech below.
