In March 2019, a shooting happened outside the Crenshaw rapper's Marathon Clothing shop in Los Angeles.
He was 33 years old.
Hussle’s life and career were honoured during a ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard in LA yesterday (August 15), with the City of Los Angeles and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce recognising the late rapper’s contribution to music and his philanthropic work.
August 15, Hussle’s birthday, will now be celebrated as Nipsey Hussle Day in LA, Los Angeles City Council Member Marqueece Harris-Dawson declared yesterday.
Speaking at the ceremony, Hussle’s widow, Lauren London, said: “Nip would’ve been honoured by this moment." I think he would want everyone to remember that you can’t get to what’s possible unless you commit to moving forward. That doesn’t mean forgetting where you come from, but it requires acknowledging the reality you were born into and the power you have to change that reality for the better.
