The Los Angeles City Council will meet today at 11 a.m. to document the legacy of Ermias 'Nispey Hussle' Asghedom into public record.
Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson is expected to introduce a motion on re-naming the Crenshaw Boulevard and Slauson Avenue intersection Nipsey Hussle Square.
"Ermias Asghedom known as 'Nipsey Hussle' was an icon and West Coast hero," Harris-Dawson said. "Nipsey's genuine nature allowed him to be a light to everyone he interacted with from family, friends, fans, and his larger community. As a father, brother, and son, Nipsey was a rock helping to build an empire that will continue through generations. Nipsey will always be remembered for delivering a pure, authentic Los Angeles sound, his numerous philanthropic efforts, his innovative, community-focused business mindset, and his humble heart."
Hussle will reportedly be laid to rest today at a private burial at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills.
