Details about Nipsey Hussle’s memorial have now been released — and he will be commemorated in the same way Michael Jackson was.

The rapper and philanthropist’s service will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Thursday, according to TMZ.

Tickets will be sold on a website, and only ticket holders will be admitted. At this point, it is not clear how much admission will cost.

Ushers who work at the venue have already been asked to reserve the day.

Michael Jackson’s memorial service was held there in 2009.

Nipsey Hussle, born Ermias Asghedom, was gunned down on Sunday in front of his own clothing store, The Marathon, in Los Angeles.

The suspect, Eric Holder, has been charged with one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder, and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. He pleaded not guilty at his arraignment on Thursday.

He faces life in prison, if convicted.
