Family, friends and dignitaries including Ice Cube, Stevie Wonder and Congresswoman Maxine Waters were among those mourning director John Singleton at his Los Angeles funeral on Monday.

The private service was held at Angelus Funeral Home in South Los Angeles, the neighborhood formerly known as South Central, where Singleton spent part of his childhood and where his career-defining film, “Boyz N the Hood,” was set.

Media was not allowed inside the funeral, which lasted about two hours before Singleton’s casket was carried out.

Others who paid their respects include “Black Panther” director Ryan Coogler and the film’s Academy Award-winning costume designer Ruth Carter, “Straight Outta Compton” director F. Gary Gray, football Hall of Famer Jim Brown, rapper Ludacris, and actors Ving Rhames, Morris Chestnut, Nia Long, Taraji P. Henson and Tyrese.

Tyrese was among the stars of Singleton’s 2001 film “Baby Boy” and 2003’s “2 Fast 2 Furious.” Chestnut, Ice Cube and Long all appeared in “Boyz N the Hood,” Singleton’s 1991 first feature, which made him the first black filmmaker and youngest person to be nominated for a best director Oscar
