As Nipsey Hussle’s birthday approaches, celebratory events are being announced. We recently learned that Eric Holder was found guilty of the late rapper’s murder three years after he was gunned down in his hometown of Los Angeles, and as the sentencing hearing lingers, fans are looking to honor the rapper. The effect of Nipsey’s passing became a global movement as people lauded Hussle’s talents and community building, and that legacy has continued to grow via his team and loved ones. 

We recently reported that the Los Angeles Metro Station would be naming Nipsey Hussle Square after the rapper as they unveil a new line. City Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson said, “From Slauson and all the way to Vernon, you will see world-class pieces of art, celebrating the history and the legacy of African American people… Everybody who comes to L.A. and rides the train out of the airport is gonna see it.”
