Thousands of fans are expected to descend on Staples Center Thursday to honor the life of slain rapper Nipsey Hussle, who was gunned down in front of the clothing store he owned in a South Los Angeles community he was dedicated to revitalizing.

You can live stream Nipsey Hussle's memorial "Celebration of Life" below.

Obama wrote a letter to the family that was read by Karen Civil, Hussle's friend and business partner.

He praised Hussle's vision, saying the rapper and community activist saw potential and hope in the Crenshaw neighborhood he grew up in and that lured him into a gang as a young man. Obama's letter states that Hussle "saw a community that even through its flaws taught him to always keep going". Those who do not have tickets will not be allowed inside the Staples Center, and there are no plans show the service on outdoor screens.

Fellow California rapper Snoop Dogg recalled Hussle's former connections with the notorious Crips gang that the musician later parlayed into efforts to combat gang violence.

The music star, 33, who was shot dead outside his Marathon Clothing store last month, was remembered by pals and loved ones, including his brother, Samiel Asghedom, at Angelus Funeral Home in Los Angeles in a private service on Wednesday, April 10, 2019.

"It is a heartbreak to lose a member of our family", Wonder said, adding that he had previously met Hussle as well as Hussle's girlfriend, Lauren London. Police officers believed that the rapper was shot by a man name Eric Holder who is now in custody facing murder and attempted murder charges.

Organizers have announced a procession following the service that will run 20 to 25 miles through the streets of Los Angeles and encompass places that were important to the rapper.

Following the service, the Grammy-nominated artist will take one last victory lap around Los Angeles as part of his funeral procession.
