Nipsey Hussle's longtime partner, Lauren London, announced on Friday that the area surrounding Nip's Marathon Clothing store will be shut down until further notice to allow for the construction of a tower in tribute to the late rapper. Reports first started to circulate on Thursday that a chain link fence had been placed around the area, which London confirmed on Instagram.
"As a notice to the public, we're putting up a gate on Thursday, August 1st, 2019 to enclose the plaza at 3420 W. Slauson Ave to start the early development stages of the forthcoming Nipsey Hussle Tower to commemorate [sic] and honor the life and legacy of Nipsey," London revealed. "The Marathon Store will remain closed, but you can shop online at TheMarathonClothing.com. Thank you."
