Beloved rapper Nipsey Hussle, who was taken away far too soon, is being celebrated with a star on the legendary Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The hip-hop community is still grappling with the death of the Los Angeles icon, who was killed on March 31st, 2019, outside of his Marathon Clothing store. His death shocked the world, as it was captured on video, with his final moments being shared across social media before his death was officially announced.
Nipsey will be amongst 38 entertainers included in this year's Walk of Fame class and one of only two posthumous recipients. The late actress Carrie Fisher will also receive a star this year.
The Hollywood Walk of Fame has become a prestigious memorial that is recognized across the globe. The 15-mile sidewalk currently contains over 2,600 stars honoring key figures in entertainment. The Walk of Fame is estimated to attract roughly 10 million visitors annually.
Congratulations to Nipsey Hussle and may he continue to rest in peace.
