Nipsey Hussle's Memorial Will Shut Down Due To Peddlers Looking To Make A Profit: Report
For weeks fans and mourners have made their way to the Crenshaw District of Los Angeles to pay their respects to Nipsey Hussle. Hundreds of thousands of people have gathered in front of the late rapper’s Marathon store where he was gunned down. The makeshift memorial site began as a place of refuge for people who wanted to honor the legacy of Nipsey, a young man who did so much good for his community, but according to TMZ, it’s turned into a marketplace.
The publication reports the corner of Crenshaw Blvd and Slauson Ave has become a “circus.” The area was left open after the global response to Nipsey’s murder, but now it’s reported that hustlers roam the block attempting to profit off of the rapper’s death. Those close to Nipsey are reportedly pulling the plug on the memorial site because the area has turned into chaos and disrespect.

There are people who are selling shirts with his image, others who are peddling $75 three-hour tours of the neighborhood, and a few who won’t even let fans get to the memorial without paying a fee. It’s apparently become such a madhouse with people roaming around daily that food trucks have set up shop right outside.
If this is true, it’s unfortunate to see the memorial go in such a manner. We all knew it couldn’t remain there indefinitely, but we thought that at least it would bow out gracefully and not so abruptly. Yet, Nipsey Hussle’s name was Hussle. Do you think he would be angry at the disrespect, or appreciate the art of the hustle?
