Nipsey Hussle Memorial Service To Air On BET & Live-Stream Online

Nipsey Hussle

With Nipsey Hussle’s memorial set for Thursday at LA’s Staples Center, BET has announced they will broadcast the service commercial-free live on their networks starting at 10 a.m. PT and live-stream the event via BET News’ Facebook page.

Free tickets to the service were snapped up within 10 minutes online Tuesday. Scalpers quickly tried to turn a profit by selling them for hundreds of dollars on marketplaces such as eBay and Craigslist, which attempted to shut down the distasteful sales as quickly as they could. Thousands of friends, family and supporters are expected to fill up Staples Center.

“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Nipsey Hussle,” said Connie Orlando, head of original programming. “Nipsey is part of the BET family and first appeared on the Network in 2009 in a Hip Hop Awards cypher, we share this loss with his millions of fans around the world. From his insurmountable talent to his commitment to reaching back to underserved communities Nipsey’s kind spirit will be sorely missed. We will keep his entire family as well as our BET sister, Lauren London in our thoughts and prayers during this immensely difficult time.”

To honor the life of the late Nipsey Hussle, born Ermias Asghedom, the city of Los Angeles announced Tuesday that the intersection of Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard will now be known as “Ermias ‘Nipsey Hussle’ Asghedom Square.” Hussle was fatally shot in front of his Marathon Clothing store on March 31.

BET News’ Marc Lamont Hill and Gia Peppers are slated to host the program on BET, which will start promptly at 10 a.m. PT.

Music is all about discovery. You could think you have a favorite artist until one night you’re shuffling through Soundcloud and suddenly chance on a completely new sound that you can’t get enough of.

Well, that’s the kind of feeling you get from this new artist King Luther (LT).

Born in Lagos Nigeria and the second of 5 siblings, he started his early childhood and junior high at the police children school, continued to senior high at Anneson High School, and then moved to Valley View University in Ghana where he gained his BSc Information Technology in 2018.

King Luther began his professional music career in August 2020 and has released his debut single under the ADT (Adenta) Accra Ghana Records Label in Ghana. He is the originator of a new music genre he defines as “Afro-High” which encompasses a few afrobeat with African authentic sounds and delectable lyrics accompanied with a low groove bass anchor.

You’ve got to listen to him yourself to appreciate the dexterity of talent he holds.

Enjoy the new sound “Time to Collect” by King Luther (LT) available everywhere for free!
