Los Angeles — Rapper Nipsey Hussle will be mourned at a public memorial on Thursday at Staples Centre in Los Angeles.

The website for the 21 000-seat downtown arena says tickets will go on sale at 10:00 on Tuesday for the event that organisers are calling Nipsey Hussle's Celebration of Life.

The memorial begins at 10:00 on Thursday. No details were given about who may be appearing, performing or speaking.

Hussle, a 33-year-old father-of-two and a hip-hop artist who was beloved for his work in his community as well as his music, was fatally shot on 31 March while standing outside his South Los Angeles clothing store.

Two days later, police arrested Eric R. Holder Jr. in the killing and on Thursday, 4 April prosecutors charged him with murder. Holder has pleaded not guilty.
