Basketball Court Named After Nipsey Hussle

The slain American rapper Nipsey Hussle seems to have gained more fame after death than when he was alive.

Perhaps it was the charity role the late rapper played in his community in Los Angeles that made the people give him the after death treat he is receiving.

The corner of Crenshaw Boulevard and Slauson Avenue were named after Nipsey Hussle as a way of immortalizing the rapper.

As if that was not enough, the city of Los Angeles also dedicated a memorial basketball court in the Crenshaw district him.

The basketball court, which was not far from his clothing store, The Marathon Clothing, was renamed after Nipsey Hussle.

The public basketball was officially unveiled on Sunday with a ribbon cutting, and it carries Nipsey’s image across 78 feet of pavement.

The mural was painted by artist Gustavo Zermeno; and backed by Venice Basketball League’s CEO, Nick Ansom.
