Nipsey Hussle’s family is reportedly searching for a large venue to house the slain rapper’s funeral.
Hussle’s relatives are looking at spaces that will accommodate upwards of 15,000 people, and they have passed on venues with 2,000 seats, reports TMZ.
The Victory Lap rapper’s family could be looking at hosting his funeral at the Staples Center, The Forum, or Hollywood Bowl.

Hussle is survived by his two children and fiance, actress Lauren London.
