Nipsey Hussle is an even bigger rockstar in the afterlife.
Just after tickets to his memorial service went on sale for the public, they were all gone in just minutes. According to TMZ, the Staples Center, which seats 21,000 people comfortably, was sold out of tickets in less than 20 minutes. The tickets went on sale for California residents only, around 10 a.m. on Tuesday, and were limited to a four-ticket minimum per person. However, just after the free tickets ran out, scalpers were quickly reselling them.
Scalpers took to sites like eBay and Craigslist, where they advertised tickets at insane prices. Some tickets were going for as much as $500 per ticket. Fortunately for Nipsey’s family, eBay and Craigslist have rules against that type of thing. As it turns out, eBay has a policy against selling free tickets and a human tragedy policy. Both policies prohibit people from selling tickets to make a profit off.
Nipsey’s “Nipsey Hussle Celebration of Life” will begin on the morning of April 11, promptly at 10 a.m., and will go until noon. Following the service, a funeral procession will begin. Details of procession state that it will be 25.5-miles long, and will go through Inglewood, South Los Angeles, and the Watts neighborhood.
