LA rapper Nipsey Hussle was gunned down in front of his “Marathon” store in LA recently, and a memorial will be held tomorrow at the Staples Center in his honor. When the news hit that there were tickets available and they were FREE, they were gone in minutes. Now scalpers have been trying to capitalize off of Nipsey Hussle’s death by selling the tickets for up to $500 bucks! I find that absolutely disgusting. Fortunately the bogus ads are being spotted and taken down.
On a more positive note, Nipsey Hussle’s Mom has some encouraging words for his grieving fans, watch below:
She is so strong, I love this.
Also, according to the Los Angeles Times:
The intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and West Slauson Avenue will be named Ermias “Nipsey Hussle” Asghedom Square, in honor of the Grammy-nominated artist who was gunned down at his clothing store near the intersection.
Los Angeles City Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson made the announcement Tuesday, noting that Hussle was a champion for the South L.A. historic Destination Crenshaw project.
