However, viewers will be able to watch Hussle's memorial on various networks in Los Angeles including Fox 11, NBC 4, ABC 7 and KTLA.

Viacom is also scheduled to air the philanthropic rapper's funeral live on BET. "BET's commercial-free, live coverage, "BET REMEMBERS: NIPSEY HUSSLE, ' will be anchored by BET News" Marc Lamont Hill who will be joined by entertainment journalist, Gia Peppers".
