Nipsey Hussle will be honored with a tower at his mall on Crenshaw Boulevard and Slauson Avenue in his community of South Central L.A.
The announcement was made by the rapper’s girlfriend Lauren London who shared a message from The Marathon Clothing team saying that “early development” has already begun on the Nipsey Hussle Tower.
“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,” read the statement.
Construction on the Nipsey Hussle Tower comes four months after the rapper was shot and killed outside his Marathon Clothing store on March 31.
Nipsey owned the shopping center, which was being investigated for gang activity prior to his death
