Complimentary tickets to the upcoming Nipsey Hussle memorial will be available on Tuesday morning, the Staples Center has announced.

The event, called “Nipsey Hussle’s Celebration of Life,” will be held Thursday from 10 a.m. to noon.

Only a limited number of free tickets will be made available, and you must be a California resident to obtain the tickets.

Security will be tight and all guests are subject to metal detector screenings, visual and bag checks upon entering the venue, Staples says. No backpacks, large bags or recording devices will be allowed.

Hustle’s family also announced details of the memorial in a post on the slain rapper’s Instagram page, writing:  “Join us for the Celebration of the Life & Legacy of Nipsey Hussle.”

Hussle, real name Ermias Asghedom, was fatally shot on March 31 outside his Marathon Clothing store in South Los Angeles. Two other men were wounded in the attack.
