Moving Tributes Paid to Nipsey Hussle

Nipsey Hussle tribute outside his Marathon Clothing Store

"He's in all of us", she said.

"I was living as a single mother with the boys and I just thought that I didn't need a man because I can make my own money. I'm so grateful that I had you". "I want to encourage you to limit your use of alcohol beverages and narcotic substances".

There were many tear-filled moments at the memorial service, which was open to the public. Now scalpers have been trying to capitalize off of Nipsey Hussle's death by selling the tickets for up to $500 bucks!

The ceremony will be the first of its kind at Staples Center since a memorial service for Michael Jackson was held there in 2009.

The 33-year-old rapper - whose real name was Ermias Joseph Asghedom - was fatally shot March 31 in front of The Marathon Clothing store. Hussle also had a daughter from a prior relationship.

London took the stage wearing a long white gown with black sunglasses covering her eyes.

Longtime girlfriend Lauren London praised the love of her life as an awesome father and said, "I am honored and blessed that I got to experience such a man". The two shared a 2-year-old son together, Kross, and the rapper was a father figure to her 9-year-old son, whom she shares with ex Lil Wayne.

"You can't possess people, that you experience them". She seemed to find some comfort in that statement but was clearly broken-hearted beyond the description of words.

Though I was a there as support for my brother Jay Rock, Nipsey greeted me as one of his own. I used to watch him sleep. "Protected. Like a shield over me when you're around", she began. But his integrity as a person, made me even more enthused. "You have been my turn up and my church". You've been with me while I've been sick, through all my fears. You and I work; we fit. Shortly after he was gone but it was still cool I guess'. The outpouring of admiration is a testimony to the love and respect you've farmed. I'm never gonna give up on you. Before he sang his song "Rocket Song", one of Hussle's favorites, Wonder denounced gun violence and told the audience "there's enough people being killed by guns and violence".

Calling Nipsey a "prophetic soul", Farrakhan said the artist, born Ermias Asghedom, meant to hip-hop what Bob Marley meant to reggae. "It's in you... He's in all of us". "Thank you for everything that you were". You can read some of the funeral program here. The portrait features Nipsey Hussle with Crenshaw written below it.

Not only will Los Angeles' Staples Center be packed for Nipsey Hussle's memorial Thursday, but throngs are also expected to line the streets to bid him farewell.
