Free tickets to Nipsey Hussle’s public “Celebration of Life” went within minutes of being available on the AXS website Tuesday morning. The problem is that ticket scalpers were racing the mourning fans trying to get their hands on tickets.
The company is making the tickets non-refundable and exclusive to the mobile app to ensure that they don’t get resold on the secondary market. Craigslist is also doing its part to prevent the reselling of the tickets by removing Hussle memorial service tickets from its website.
Hussle’s memorial service is to be held on Thursday morning at the Staples Center, which can seat up to 21,000 people. The tickets are only available to California residents.
On March 31, Hussel was pronounced dead after being shot multiple times outside of his clothing store in Los Angeles. Tributes have been pouring in for the late rapper and community activist ever since.
A Facebook video posted on Tuesday showed Hussle’s mother sharing some strength and encouraging words for his fans.
“I have perfect peace, and I have strength, and I want to lift you up,” she said in the video. “Please do not stay down, do not stay stuck, do not mourn. Because Nipsey is great … Now he’s even greater because he has no bounds and limits. His energy is everywhere. He’s there with you now and he’s here with me now. And pleased be encouraged.”
Eric Holder has been charged with Hussle’s murder.
