In honor of the South Los Angeles rapper, businessman, and philanthropist icon, Nipsey Hussle, fans have united to make a change! A petition started by The Project Islamic Hope on Change.org aimed at LA Councilman Harris-Dawson requests that he formally changes the name of the intersection of Crenshaw and Slauson to Nipsey Hussle Way where his Marathon store is located.
“I started this petition because…
I knew Nipsey Hussle personally. He wasn’t just a rapper. He was a community icon.”
– The Project Islamic
The passing of Nipsey Hussle was a shock not only to the rap and Los Angeles communities, but to the world. We’ll let the numbers speak for itself. As of April 2, 2019 10:20 PM, the petition has 186,000 signers (and counting). Be the change you want to see and sign the petition here.
