The 33-year-old rapper, whose real name is Ermias Asghedom, was shot outside his clothing store in south L.A. on March 31. He died soon after. Two others were shot in the attack, but have survived.

Nipsey’s longterm partner Lauren London and numerous stars, including, Kendrick, Beyonce, Pharrell, J. Cole, Rihanna and Drake paid tribute to the Grammy-nominated artist following his sudden death. It is unclear if any of them will be in attendance on Thursday.
