Today was the day they finally laid a king down.. The small burial only included family and friends…
Nipsey Hussle’s family and friends gathered Friday for a private funeral on a day when the slain rapper was also honored by his hometown of Los Angeles.
Hussle was buried at Forest Lawn-Hollywood Hills in an afternoon service.
The sprawling cemetery in northern Los Angeles between Griffith Park and Burbank is, as the name would suggest, the final resting place of much Hollywood royalty, including Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds, Bette Davis, Lucille Ball, Liberace and David Carradine.
The small ceremony stood in contrast to a giant celebration a day earlier of the 33-year-old Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom. About 20,000 people flocked to a public memorial for Hussle a day earlier at Staples Center.
