Nipsey Hussle Square: Councilman Moves To Name Intersection After Slain Rapper

Angelique recalled her son's early years when he was at school and asked to be put in advanced classes, smiling: "He recognised at an early age his own capability". Police believe that the unidentified gunman or gunmen were attempting to murder someone in the crowd, and have asked a judge to order business owners to hand over surveillance footage from the surrounding stores, including Hussle's Marathon Clothing store, the outlet reports.

Hussle, who was born Ermias Joseph Asghedom, was shot six times while standing in front of his store in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.

"I'm going to keep my head high and always represent for my king to the fullest", she added.

Nipsey Hussle's family and his partner, Lauren London, have spoken out about the rapper a week after his murder.

"He was a protector and wanted us to be our best at all times", London said. "He loved his kids".

Los Angeles City Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson made the announcement Tuesday, noting that Hussle was a champion for the South L.A. historic Destination Crenshaw project. "His family came first".

The intersection of Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard, close to where the star was shot, will now be named Ermias "Nipsey Hussle" Asghedom Square, referencing his birth name. Eric Holder, 29, was charged with one count of murder and two counts of attempted murder.

The West Coast icon, known for his philanthropy and community service, will be honored Thursday morning at the 21,000-seat area located in downtown Los Angeles. He pleaded not guilty during his arraignment last week.
