The intersection of Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard will be renamed in honor of the late rapper Nipsey Hussle.
The Los Angeles City Council is expected to introduce a motion to rename the intersection of Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard as “Ermias ‘Nipsey Hussle’ Asghedom Square,” according to Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson, a friend of Hussle’s.
Harris-Dawson said in a statement, “Nipsey’s genuine nature allowed him to be a light to everyone he interacted with from family, friends, fans, and his larger community. As a father, brother, and son, Nipsey was a rock helping to build an empire that will continue through generations. Nipsey will always be remembered for delivering a pure, authentic Los Angeles sound, his numerous philanthropic efforts, his innovative, community-focused business mindset, and his humble heart.
