Last week, TMZ reported that the late rapper's loved ones turned down hoards of proposals for a very public birthday bash for Nipsey, instead opting to honor his memory as a family.

"There will be no city-wide celebration in Los Angeles, even though fans are begging for one because his family is still in mourning," the outlet reported. "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."

Nipsey was gunned down outside his clothing store on March 31. His alleged killer is currently behind bars awaiting trial.
