Los Angeles celebrates Nipsey Hussle’s life


LOS ANGELES — Nipsey Hussle’s legacy as a rapper, community activist, uniter, doting father, protective sibling and loving son was underscore­d at his public memorial service Thursday, with deeply personal testimonie­s from those closest to the rapper, including his actressfia­ncée Lauren London, collaborat­or and friend Snoop Dogg and mother, who said she was at peace with the death of her “superhero” son.

The threehour event at the Staples Center drew more than 21,000 people. The hearse carrying the coffin made a 25mile lap through the city in front of more adoring fans.

Hussle was shot to death March 31 outside The Marathon, his South Los Angeles clothing store. Police allege that Eric R. Holder Jr. killed him in a personal dispute.
