News In Pictures: See Moments From Nipsey Hussle's Celebration Of Life

Before he was killed, Nipsey Hussle had already foreseen his funeral.

The rapper, who was born Ermias Asghedom, offered some lyrics in his 2016 song “Ocean Views” which described how he wanted to be remembered after his death.
"My precedures, stay crackin 'til my life's low / Then when I die, blue rag around my rifle / Hundred-thousand in my coffin, that's just life though / Play a Stevie Wonder song, smoke some flight, bro / Crack a pint of Actavis then pour in some Sprite, bro / Until that day I'm walking toward what's in my sights, though."
The "blue rag" would be symbolic of Hussle's affiliation with the Rollin 60's, a Los Angeles gang that is a part of the Crips -- something he didn't shy away from talking about.

His rise from the gang life to that of Grammy-nominated rap artist helped fuel his devotion to giving back to his community via entrepreneurship and activism.
