The funeral for Nipsey Hussle is set for Thursday and will include a 25-mile procession for the rapper.

Nipsey Hussle, born Ermias Asghedom, will be laid to rest at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, on Thursday. The service is anticipated to begin at 10 a.m. and end at 12 p.m. 

TMZ reports that Nipsey's casket will make a final "victory lap" in honor of his last album around South Central Los Angeles before reaching the funeral home in Crenshaw for burial.

Landmarks such as his childhood home as well as his Marathon Clothing store at the intersection of Slauson and Crenshaw will be a center point of the 25-mile procession, where he both inspired his community and met his demise.
