Nipsey Hussle’s family is planning on 'fulfilling the late rapper’s dreams'.
Nipsey Hussle's Brother Blacc Sam Plans to Open Second Marathon Store
The Guardian reports on Monday (February 7), Blacc Sam, who’s Nipsey’s brother, announced that the family has purchased a commercial property in the Melrose Arts District in Los Angeles to open a second Marathon Store.
Hussle family purchased a commercial property in the Melrose arts district in LA and the new store will be located here. “This second location is a dream that Nipsey always had, and it’s important that his kids are able to see his plans fulfilled,” Blacc Sam said.
The original Marathon store is located on Crenshaw Boulevard and Slauson Avenue but was closed after Nipsey was shot and killed in its front parking lot in March 2019. A year later in 2020 the store was reportedly been vandalized. Glass windows on the building were completely shattered.
The marathon clothing store is currently being used as a memorial site for fans and supporters to pay tribute to Nipsey’s memory, with plans to convert the surrounding commercial lot into a community space offering free music-based programs for the area’s youth.
