*Following Nipsey Hussle’s star-studded memorial service at the Staples Center on Thursday, Meek Mill, The Game, T.I., 2 Chainz and Jay Z purchased every item at his Marathon Clothing Store to support the slain rapper’s family.

NBA stars J.R. Smith, DeMar DeRozan, and Al Harrington also dropped a lot of money at the store. Nipsey’s famous pals even refused to accept any free items for all the love they’ve shown the beloved artist and entrepreneur throughout his career, according to TMZ.

As we reported earlier, Nipsey’s 3-hour memorial service started at the Staples Center and ended with a 25.5-mile funeral procession through streets of his south Los Angeles neighborhood.

Snoop Dogg, YG, Lauren London, and Stevie Wonder were among those who turned out to celebrate his legacy. Former president Barack Obama even sent a letter to be read during the service while Kendrick Lamar and Jigga penned words of encouragement for the program that was shared with the tens of thousands of mourning fans in attendance.

“He was the strongest man that I ever knew. A gentle father, a patient leader, a divine light. He was brilliant. He researched everything, completely self-taught, constantly seeking knowledge,” said Nipsey’s longtime girlfriend Lauren London during her emotional eulogy to “the love of her life.”

Speaking of their 2-year-old son Kross, London noted: “My pain is from a 2-year-old that probably won’t remember how much his dad loved him.”

Hussle was buried in Forrest Lawn Memorial Park Hollywood Hill on Thursday and fans are permitted to send flowers to his grave, The Blast reports.
