South Los Angeles City Councilman Declares "Nipsey Hussle" Square

Thanks to Los Angeles City councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson the intersection of Slauson and Crenshaw will be renamed Ermias “Nipsey Hussle” Asghedom Square.

A petition for the name change got over 500,000 signatures, Harris-Dawson commented on Ermias, telling the Los Angeles Sentinel, “Ermias Asghedom, known as ‘Nipsey Hussle,’ was an icon and West Coast hero,” 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.”

Nipsey’s Celebration of Life will be held at Staples Center on Thursday, April 11th with 21,000 expected in attendance and many to be following the 25-mile procession through Los Angeles including his Marathon Clothing Store.
