The Estate of Nipsey Hussle Opens The Marathon Collective In Los Angeles

The Marathon Continues!

Last month, it was reported that the estate of entrepreneurial rapper, Nipsey Hussle, will open The Marathon Collective, a THC and CBD retail store, in Los Angeles. This past weekend, the vision of the deceased rapper was seen by family, friends, and fans.

The official opening took place on Saturday, June 18.

Last month, a documentary had been released in anticipation of this weekend’s grand opening.

The documentary was released one month before the grand opening of the family- and friends-owned business, which is being led by his older brother, Samiel “Blacc Sam” Asghedom. The retail establishment is located at 7011 Canoga Ave. in Los Angeles.

According to Complex, a screening of the documentary took place last month and Asghedom spoke.

“This is something we always spoke about,” he said. “Nipsey, Fatts, Adam and I had a goal to get a legitimate licensed store and have our brand in other stores across the state. We’re so honored to be able to fulfill the dream.”

The 33-year-old Hussle was killed in front of his Marathon Clothing store, located in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. A petition was started to rename the intersection of Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard near Hussle’s store to “Nipsey Hussle Square.” On the day of his funeral, the City Council announced it was set to be renamed Ermias “Nipsey Hussle” Asghedom Square to honor him and his contributions to the neighborhood.

The trial to convict the man who killed him started last week in Los Angeles. Prosecutors disclosed that the reason Nipsey was slain was that in a conversation with his killer, he allegedly accused him of snitching which led the killer to come back and kill the popular rapper.

According to The Associated Press, on Wednesday, a Los Angeles prosecutor told jurors that Eric R. Holder, the man accused of fatally shooting Nipsey, pre-meditated his 2019 killing. The two men were having a discussion where Nipsey expressed to Holder there were rumors that he was a “snitch” and he should “clear that up.”

Deputy District Attorney John McKinney shared that narrative during his opening statement and stated that there is “no doubt” that Holder knew beforehand that he would kill Hussle. He told the courtroom that Holder shot Nipsey at least 10 times and kicked the rapper in the head before fleeing the scene.
