(AllHipHop News) Nipsey Hussle will be immortalized at the location where he lost his life. The late emcee/entrepreneur's surviving partner, Lauren London, announced a special tribute is being built near The Marathon Clothing store.
London posted a message on Instagram that read:
As a notice to the public, we're putting up a gate on Thursday, August 1st, 2019 to enclose the plaza at 3420 W. Slauson Ave to start the early development stages of the forthcoming Nipsey Hussle Tower to commemorate and honor the life and legacy of Nipsey. The Marathon Store will remain closed, but you can shop online at TheMarathonClothing.com.
Hussle (born Ermias Asghedom) was shot outside The Marathon Clothing store on March 31. He later passed away at a local hospital. A star-studded memorial service was held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
