Dave East took to Instagram earlier in the day to notify fans of the vigil and urged people to come out.

I'm out here at Nips candlelight visual in NY and this shit just keeps hitting me. @DaveEast out here and we’re all grieving with him. This shit is so different. We lost a KING like royalty! #RIPNipseyHussel 💙🏁 @NipseyHussle— TaqisTake (@Taqi_) April 2, 2019
Since Nipsey's passing, many have took to social media to mourn the rapper's death.
Wow. I don’t even know what to say. I’m confused. Nipsey and I had just started really getting to know each other. I feel honored to have worked on his project. Nipsey represents change, he represents evolution, he represents everything our culture needs to embrace. pic.twitter.com/BN9240BYwK— Diddy (@Diddy) April 1, 2019
This doesn’t make any sense! My spirit is shaken by this! Dear God may His spirit Rest In Peace and May You grant divine comfort to all his loved ones! 💔🙏🏿— Rihanna (@rihanna) April 1, 2019
