Shooting after Nipsey Hussle funeral procession leaves 1 dead and 3 injured

Kendrick Lamar, who is featured on Nipsey Hussle's Victory Lap song "Dedication", wrote about touring alongside Hussle a decade ago.

A shooting killed one person and wounded three others near the funeral procession route for slain rapper Nipsey Hussle in South Los Angeles. Los Angeles Police Chief Michael Moore reported the shooting on Twitter.

Anthony Hamilton invoked the spirit of a church service when he performed in Hussle's honor.

Longtime girlfriend Lauren London praised the love of her life as an wonderful father and said, "I am honored and blessed that I got to experience such a man". But I know Ermias used to say you can't possess people but you experience them. "We call on our ancestors to join us at this service", she said, before the calling. "My love and my devotion are to you".

Nispey Hussle's Celebration of Life memorial service, held at the Staples Center, brought together thousands of his family members, loved ones, admirers and fans who respectfully remembered his life and legacy. The two-hour ceremony is to be followed by a lengthy procession through Los Angeles, traveling 25 miles and passing the block which houses Hussle's The Marathon Clothing store. Stay 10 toes down, it's not on you it's in you and what's in you they can't take away'. I was able to meet, as well, Lauren, and was celebrating her birthday, past week's birthday, but as well, celebrating the fact that we had a good conversation and looked forward to a wonderful life. He said, 'What up killa, ' 'cuz that's my nickname to him.

"This man got a letter from Barack Obama, man", Snoop Dogg said, before saluting the coffin surrounded by white flowers. The Saturday before his death, she said she told him: "I said my heart feels as if there's possibly heaviness in your heart and soul".

In 2017, Hussle helped renovate a Mid-City roller rink that shaped Los Angeles' early hip-hop scene. She said he taught her that her opportunities were boundless. Police said the shooting was motivated by a personal dispute, although it took place against a surge in gang-related violence in south Los Angeles.

Hussle, whose name was Ermias Ashedom, was known in the community as a positive influence in the neighborhood.

But today, it's time to celebrate the incredible life of Nipsey Hussle.

Eric R. Holder Jr., who has been charged with killing Hussle, has pleaded not guilty.

The 33-year-old Grammy-nominated rapper was a beloved figure for his philanthropic work that went beyond the usual celebrity "giving back" ethos.
