Rival Los Angeles gangs hosted a peace rally bringing the community together and honoring rapper Nipsey Hussle's life.   

Gangs from Watts, Compton, Inglewood and Los Angeles met Friday afternoon to take part in a rally for peace. The Sun reports the Bloods and Crips, notorious foe gangs, marched in the rally. Hussle was formerly a member of the Rollin 60s Crips

According to TMZ, the Friday march will only be the start of a more extended peace. Gang leaders reportedly called for gangs to put down their weapons and cease-fire in an attempt to honor the late rapper's legacy. 

The march started at a Crenshaw grocery store and ended at Hussle's Marathon Clothing store.

On March 31, the 33-year-old was gunned down by suspected shooter Eric Holder in front of the store. Authorities believe the shooting took place following a dispute between Holder and Hussle.  

TMZ reports there have not been this many gangs united for peace since 1992 — the same year the Rodney King incident sparked the Los Angeles riots.
