The memorial service for rapper and South Los Angeles community activist Nipsey Hussle takes place from 10 a.m.-12 p.m today at the Staple Center. The 33-year-old was shot and killed late last month in front of his clothing shop.

Free tickets to the event were gone, an hour and a half after they were released on Tuesday. The tickets were only available to California residents.

After the memorial service, a miles-long procession will carry Nipsey Hussle’s body through the streets of Los Angeles and the neighborhood he was part of.
