While fans will be able to mourn Nipsey Hussle tomorrow, Nipsey's close friends and family held a private viewing today per TMZ.
Close loved ones packed the Angelus Funeral Home Wednesday afternoon on Crenshaw Blvd. Nipsey's brother, Samiel Asghedom, was among the attendees at the super secret service. We're told security was tight ... several men had a checklist to make sure only invited guests -- Nipsey's inner circle -- were allowed entry.
There were also armed guards standing outside the building where Thursday's procession will end.
