The late, legendary Nipsey Hussle will receive his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce in Los Angeles decided that the iconic rap star would be bestowed this monumental gesture posthumously for his indelible contributions to music and his South Los Angeles community.
The rapper, who was born Ermias Joseph Asghedom, will have his star planted on Hollywood Boulevard on Monday, Aug. 15, which would have been the esteemed emcee’s 37th birthday, according to Los Angeles magazine.
The rapper’s former life partner Lauren London, who has her own distinguished artistic career via the film ATL and hit TV show “The Game,” is presumed to attend the ceremony in his honor.
Hussle will join the class that includes the late actress Carrie Fisher, who rocketed into international fame via the original Star Wars trilogy. She will also receive her star posthumously. Others in the 2022 class will include funk legend George Clinton, Jr., Motown icon Martha Reeeves, The Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola and actor Willem Dafoe, most recently famous for playing the villain in the original Spider-Man film.
