Nipsey Hussle was taken far too soon and his legacy will live forever. Now his name will be immortalized forever.

Hussle will be posthumously honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. A ceremony celebrating the late Crenshaw icon is set to take place on what would have been his 37th birthday on August 15th. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce confirmed on Wednesday.

The Walk of Fame ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. pacific time. Hussle joins NFL legend Michael Strahan, actor Michael B. Jordan, the Black Eyed Peas and more than part of the 2022 class.

Nip joins other hip hop legends including Snoop DoggDiddy50 CentIce Cube and DJ Khaled on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Ludacris will be honored to receive a star in 2023.

Hussle was shot and killed on March 31, 2019, in front of his Marathon Clothing store. Eric Holder, Hussle’s killer, was convicted by a grand jury on first-degree murder charges this past July. He could be sentenced to life without parole.

Nipsey’s legacy will be cemented in another part of California. L.A.’s Metro Rail announced that a brand-new station will be named after him.

“From Slauson and all the way to Vernon, you will see world-class pieces of art, celebrating the history and the legacy of African American people,” Los Angeles Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson said. “Everybody who comes to L.A. and rides the train out of the airport is gonna see it. Is that alright?”

Nipsey may be gone, but never forgotten. His legacy will probably inspire future hip hop musicians in the process. This is quite a reminder of how much he meant to so many people.
