Nipsey Hussle’s Family Won’t Be Having a Public Birthday Celebration.

Nipsey Hussle’s family is reportedly planning a private birthday event in lieu of a public one, because they’re still mourning his passing.

“Instead of a public event … we’re told Nipsey’s family will get together on August 15, on what would have been the Crenshaw rapper’s 34th birthday, and remember their lost loved one in private,” says TMZ. “Our sources say Nip’s clan has been flooded with suggestions for how to recognize his bday in front of the masses … but we’re told the family feels it’s still too soon to do a huge celebration, considering it’s only been a few months since his tragic death.”

Fans who plan to visit the Marathon Clothing store will also only be able to get so close, as there will reportedly be barricades and a heavy police presence on site.
