Nipsey Hussle will be honored with a posthumous star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The late rapper and entrepreneur was named among 38 honorees yesterday, Variety reports. Another honoree who will receive a star posthumously is Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher, who died in late 2016 at the age of 60.

Other members of the Hollywood Walk of Fame class of 2022 in the recording category include George Clinton, Ashanti, DJ Khaled, Black Eyed Peas, and Avril Lavigne.

“The Panel did an amazing job choosing these very talented people,” Ellen K, a radio personality and chair of the Walk of Fame selection panel said, per Variety. “We can’t wait to see each honoree’s reaction as they realize that they are becoming a part of Hollywood’s history with the unveiling of their star on the world’s most famous walkway!”

The Walk of Fame star continues Nipsey’s growing list of posthumous accolades and honors, including multiple Grammys and the humanitarian award at the 2019 BET Awards.

Nipsey died on March 31, 2019, after being shot outside his Marathon Clothing store in South Los Angeles. At only 33 years old, he cemented a place in rap’s pantheon of elite artists by virtue of his talent and extensive community outreach. And for that, he deserves all of the accolades.
