When Carrie Fisher passed away in December 2016, her fans constructed a makeshift memorial on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for the dearly departed star. Soon, they’ll have an official star to visit.

On Thursday morning, the Hollywood Walk of Fame announced the 38 notables who’ll be honored with stars in 2022, including Fisher and fellow posthumous honoree Nipsey Hussle. Since Hussle—born Ermias Asghedom—was killed outside South L.A.’s Marathon in March 2019, the clothing store has become a place for fans to visit and mourn. Murals honoring Hussle also popped up across the city in the wake of his death.
