The family of murdered rapper Nipsey Hussle plans to hold a spectacular funeral for him at the Staples Center, a 21,000-seat Los Angeles venue.

As you'd expect, coordinating this event over the last few days has apparently been a real undertaking itself; Nipsey's family and head honchos from the Staples Center reportedly first met about this possibility several days ago, with LAPD officials involved every step of the way to help with crowd control, etc.

Grand: Meanwhile, Nipsey's memorial service will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Even with his affiliation with Los Angeles' Rollin 60's Neighborhood Crips, the rapper spread a message of love and encouragement. Injured Lakers forward LeBron James also honored Hussle by wearing a t-shirt with his likeness on it at yesterday's game.

Holder's bail was set at $5 million and he will appear back in court on May 10. Darden entered a not guilty plea on his behalf.

Two men were also injured in the shooting outside the store, which is located at Crenshaw Boulevard and Slauson Avenue. He faces the possibility of life in prison if convicted.
