Watch Nipsey Hussle’s “Celebration Of Life” – Live From The Staples Center

As reported earlier, Nipsey Hussle’s memorial sold out the Staples Center in about ten minutes. For those lucky enough to have a ticket, it is sure to be an event to remember. As for the rest of us, the ceremony will be live-streamed via BET in what they’ve named BET Remembers: Nipsey Hussle.

The event will kick-off live at 10 am Pacific/ 1 pm Eastern time and will stream on both BET and Bet Digital, commercial-free. The Head of Original Programming at BET Networks shared a few kind words about Nipsey and his legacy.

“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Nipsey Hussle.  Nipsey is part of the BET family and first appeared on the Network in 2009 in a Hip Hop Awards cypher, we share this loss with his millions of fans around the world.  From his insurmountable talent to his commitment to reaching back to underserved communities Nipsey’s kind spirit will be sorely missed.  We will keep his entire family as well as our BET sister, Lauren London in our thoughts and prayers during this immensely difficult time.”
