The entire hip hop community is mourning the sudden loss of Los Angeles rapper, Nipsey Hussle. Not only was Nipsey a prominent figure in West Coast rap, he was an entrepreneur and activist known for investing in his community. His community has now started a petition to solidify Nip's legacy!
The Charge.Org Petition is calling for "LA Councilman Harris-Dawson to name the intersection of Crenshaw and Slauson 'Nipsey Hussle Blvd'. In honor of a community icon." In less than 24 hours the petition has received 63,000 signatures and counting.
The intersection named in the petition is in the Hyde Park district of L.A. While this is the same location Nipsey's life was taken, it is also the location of his 'The Marathon' clothing store and an area frequently mentioned in multiple mixtapes, albums and singles.
