BET News’ Marc Lamont Hill and Gia Peppers are slated to host the program on BET, which will begin at 10 a.m. PT.

“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Nipsey Hussle,” said Connie Orlando, BET’s head of original programming. “Nipsey is part of the BET family and first appeared on the Network in 2009 in a Hip Hop Awards cypher, we share this loss with his millions of fans around the world. From his insurmountable talent to his commitment to reaching back to underserved communities Nipsey’s kind spirit will be sorely missed. We will keep his entire family as well as our BET sister, Lauren London in our thoughts and prayers during this immensely difficult time.”

In honor of the late Hussle (real name Ermias Asghedom), the city of Los Angeles announced Tuesday (April 9) that the intersection of Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard will now be known as “Ermias ‘Nipsey Hussle’ Asghedom Square.”

Hussle was fatally shot in front of his Marathon Clothing store on March 31.
