With Nipsey Hussle’s birthday (August 15th) fastly approaching, offers are flooding in for a public birthday celebration but that will NOT be happening! The family of the slain public figure have turned down ALL offers and here is why….
Sources close to Nipsey’s fam told TMZ … there will be no city-wide celebration in Los Angeles, even though fans are begging for one, because his family is still in mourning.
Instead of a public event … we’re told Nipsey’s family will get together on August 15, on what would have been the Crenshaw rapper’s 34th birthday, and remember their lost loved one in private.
Our sources say Nip’s clan has been flooded with suggestions for how to recognize his bday in front of the masses … but we’re told the family feels it’s still too soon to do a huge celebration, considering it’s only been a few months since his tragic death.
Nipsey fans who flock to his Marathon Clothing store in his honor will be met by a heavy police presence … and they won’t be able to get close to the storefront, because we’re told an extra set of barricades is being added to an existing fence.
Since Hussle was beloved by so many, we can empathize with the family…it’s just too soon. There would be mad hysteria surrounding anything public and the family is still in mourning.
