The Marathon Clothing store has become a fixture in the South Los Angeles community that late rapper Nipsey Hussle worked to develop over the years of his life. Although it has been over a year since we lost the Los Angeles rap legend, the center of his legacy, outside of music, is the corner plaza located at Crenshaw and Slauson, which has become a mecca for not only all things Hussle, but a statement and example of growing generational wealth and entrepreneurship.
Sadly, the plaza now becoming known as Nipsey Square, has been vandalized. In a new video posted to social media, the Marathon Clothing shop is shown in its current state of shattered glass, spray paint damage, and potential looting. All the stores in the corner plaza were also vandalized.
While there isn’t much information on any suspects, this news follows the on-going dispute the Asghedom family has encountered with he Crips, LLC, as both sides are fighting for the use of the “TMC” trademark.
