BREAKING: NIPSEY HUSSLE "MARATHON CLOTHING" STORE Might GET SEIZED IN GANG INVESTIGATION
 

 
To all you dumb fu*k who doubted me i fu*king told you since day one





Eminent domain season i fu*king told you
Now they investigating black sam and all the business a*soicate

The New York Times reports. The investigation remains open as police and the city attorney’s office contemplate whether to declare the store’s strip mall a site for gang activity, which would allow officials to fine the property’s remaining owners and even seize the property under so-called abatement laws. Hussle and partners purchased the commercial plaza earlier this year after Marathon Clothing’s former landlords were reportedly pressured to evict the rapper as part of the probe.

The investigation looks especially odd now after city officials, including Mayor Eric Garcetti and Police Commissioner Steve Soboroff, publicly mourned Hussle’s death. Garcetti praised the rapper born Ermias Asghedom as an “artist, entrepreneur, activist and philanthropist” who “loved this city and gave of himself to uplift his neighborhood and his neighbors,” and the city council named the strip mall’s intersection at Crenshaw and Slauson after him. Hussle was a member of the Rollin’ 60s Crips who was known to invest in the community and support and employ former gang members; he planned to build apartments on the strip.

Thousands gathered at the plaza to mourn and pay tribute during the weeks following Hussle’s death. Marathon Clothing has however remained closed since the shooting. The ongoing investigation endangers the store’s future and Hussle’s development plans, as Marqueece Harris-Dawson, a city council member representing South Los Angeles, points out. “I think everybody in the community will do everything we can to make sure the ventures he started will continue,” he told the Times. “And this is a very confusing hiccup in this process.” You can read the full report here.

Pay close attention to choice of words and the high emphasize on that "property"






Yet in the same moment that the city’s leaders were rushing to embrace Hussle as a hero of South Los Angeles, officials in the Police Department and city attorney’s office were investigating him. According to the city authorities and others briefed on the matter, they had an open investigation into Hussle, his property and his business a*sociates to determine whether the strip mall at the corner of Crenshaw Boulevard and Slauson Avenue was a hub of gang activity.

The investigation into Hussle’s empire, which the city has not publicized, continues in the wake of the k*lling, raising the possibility that the city will take action against the rapper’s remaining business partners. As part of the investigation, the city pressured Hussle’s former landlords to evict the rapper and his a*sociates. Instead, the landlords sold the property earlier this year to Hussle and a group of investors for $2.5 million, according to public records.

Hussle had been open about his past membership in the Rollin’ 60s Crips, a prominent street gang that emerged in Los Angeles in the 1970s. But in recent years, he was working with the city to reduce gang violence. And his purchase of the strip mall, and his plan to build new apartments, was seen as an important investment in the neighborhood at a time of fears over gentrification. He often employed men affiliated with the gang, or tried to help former inmates who had done time for gang-related crimes.

The police say Hussle was gunned down in the parking lot of the strip mall by another member of the Rollin’ 60s — a man named Eric Holder, 29, who has been charged with murder. The shooting was tied to a personal dispute. Exactly what set off the confrontation remains under investigation, but witnesses said that Hussle had told Mr. Holder that the word on the street was that he was a snitch.


As the investigation continues, the narrative of Hussle as a hero has been solidified in the city’s psyche. That puts enormous political pressure on investigators to back away amid worries that an aggressive inquiry could damage relations between the city, the police department and the black community in South Los Angeles. But at the same time, the k*lling has emboldened investigators who see it as just the sort of violent act they were worried could happen at the property.

It is unclear what prompted the investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department and the office of the city attorney. But the inquiry is centered on the strip mall itself — which includes Hussle’s Marathon Clothing store, a cellphone shop and a barber shop — and whether it has been a center of gang activity.

a cellphone shop and a barber shop — and whether it has been a center of gang activity.

Josh Rubenstein, a spokesman for the Police Department, would not discuss the specifics of the continuing investigation, but said the department had been negotiating directly with Hussle’s remaining partners on the property “to mitigate some of those crime issues.” (Hussle’s main partner in the strip mall is David Gross, a Los Angeles businessman, who was not immediately available for comment.)

Marqueece Harris-Dawson, a City Council member who represents South Los Angeles, said his office had been trying to get answers about the investigation for years on behalf of Hussle and his business partners.

“I think everybody in the community will do everything we can to make sure the ventures he started will continue,” he said. “And this is a very confusing hiccup in this process.”

A spokesman for the city attorney’s office said it could not comment about an open investigation.

Such investigations, called abatement or nuisance probes, have long been a tool of the city to crack down on gangs. They have led to evictions and, in some cases, property seizures.

The city attorney’s office has called the abatement program a critical weapon in law enforcement’s “arsenal against gangs.” Rather than targeting individuals with criminal charges, the program focuses on public and private spaces — the physical territories that are critical to a gang’s reach in a neighborhood.

In recent years, the city attorney, Mike Feuer, has filed numerous lawsuits against property owners for allowing gang activity, including at a duplex in South Los Angeles where prosecutors said there was a “toxic combination of gangs, guns and drugs”; and a motel in Van Nuys that officials said was rife with prostitution, drugs and violence.

These types of investigations have been far less controversial than civil restraining orders that prohibit suspected gang members from a*sociating with one another and have long been a primary tool for Los Angeles to target gangs. Last year, a federal judge banned the city from enforcing most such injunctions, on the grounds that they violated due process rights.

The gang injunctions, as well as a state database called CalGang — which apparently still included Hussle’s name at the time of his k*lling — have long been seen by critics as a way for the city to permanently label young black men as gang members, and to criminalize interactions with friends and family members who may be labeled the same.

“It can get to where you can’t hang around with your brother,” said Edward Latessa, a professor of criminal justice at the University of Cincinnati. “That’s ridiculous, right?





During the ceremony, the rapper’s brother and business partner, Samiel Asghedom, choked back tears as he addressed the crowd, and recounted how they had defied the city’s efforts to evict them from the strip mall.

“I don’t know if anybody knows, but we had a 30-day notice and they were kicking us out of all the businesses we owned in the lot,” Mr. Asghedom said, explaining that the landlords had apologized, but said that the city and the police were pressuring them to evict Hussle and his partners.

He said the landlords — who declined to comment for this article — told them: “At this point, if you guys are still interested in buying the lot, you know, rather than kick you guys out we’re willing to sell it to you.”

That set off a scramble to raise the $2.5 million to buy the property.

“I honestly don’t know how we did it, but we were able to close and get the lot,” he said. “And Nip was so proud of that.”

See what the fu*k i mean
Just like I said repeatedly now that sh*t have calm down they're back to regular programming of what the original plan was in the first place

After they a*ssinated nip they disarm the public with praises about him

Then black Sam mention the story of how they purchased the lot after lapd say they had to be evict from the lot

Now they mention that in the article

This is all just them making a complete paper trail by first making the narrative be nipsey was k*lled for that snitch comment and then the bullsh*t getaway driver transcript of everything

This is a paper trail for them to TAKE NIPSEY LOT legally and enforce eminent domain

With that train coming that lot is is the most important shopping center there. It right when you get off the train and will receive all the new business

That the Mastermind to everything they want to do

We should be praying for black sam the power to be going still try to take what him and little brother built and one day finally was able to purchased it in a interesting unusual circumstances to get it.

Now they're f*ghting back to take it. They will make up story about nipsey and they will use this as an excuse to arrest everybody working in that plaza amd nipsey empire which mean they're trying get black Sam now cause they have to get that lot.

They think they can produce more tax rexnue so they're going paint the picture that nipsey multi Million dollar striving Business is a front for a "gang hub"

Like wtf is a fu*king gang hub they think nipsey on some Tony sopranos sh*t in between making song and closing multi Million dollar deals that will shift his city for decade to come

The world first smart store he help develop that with the African tech phenomenon who help coded the Uber Snapchat and Instagram app

To OWNING A fu*kING LAS VEGAS CASINO HOTEL THAT IS OPENING IM 2020

Opening your eyes. They're erasing our history while a*sisnating our legends and their character.

This is stragetic planning. They k*lled the man now they got to k*lled his character to convinced the public nipsey was nothing but a thug running a criminal empire not a Grammy nonimated entrepreneur inspiring the gang unit in his district and changing the way an entire generation think and act and inspiring an generation of young entrepreneur and gang entrepreneur

I'm praying for black sam.
You don't inspire little girl like this and be running a "gang hub"

SMH yall be so simple minded with that hood mentality don't you see a fu*king billion dollar train project launching by next year. The councilman the mayor the lapd everybody is in on trying to get the goldmine left in la to gentrify which is Crenshaw. That the gold mine to everything theyre trying to do
Inglewood already been successful Crenshaw is the last standing f*ght. Councilman a snake he serectly want to line his pocket

Start learning politics just as much as street sh*t and you too can see past that Stupid sh*t

Open your eyes man
Black sam said they tried to forced them out the lot and by their surprised they pull a hail Mary and just straight up bought the lot after lapd and thecity demanded that they be removed from rhat lot after nip purchased the lot he was k*lled a month later and on that exact day his stote CAMERA just HAPPENED TO NOT BE RECORDING....

YOU so caught up in your "this is regular hood sh*t narrative" you're being too simple minded and pigeon toes of what REALLY GOING ON


THIS sh*t DONT ADD UP
YOU WATCH A MOVIE WHERE THE STORY LINE DONT MATCH OR ADD UP TOGETHER
 KingOfBoxden said
People talking that "this just some hood sh*t" to stupid to see at the rates these snakes are moving at they WILL BE NO HOOD sh*t

Hood and surburb about to make a switch

They are tired of living on mountain and surburb far away from city

They like our hood but nice prime gold mine location that connect to all the freeway nearby that get you to Hollywood and downtown and with the train project they can finally connect the dot to take what they REALLY WANT

n*ggas too sleep to see what going on. As a kid from oakland im warning you what been going on
 KingOfBoxden said
You haven't answer one question of substance that i asked

Why is they harassing nip car on his lot

Why are they applying pressure to take his lot back after they couldn't forced hin out so he magically ended up dead the next month of being ordered out

Why is the female driver saying she and sh*tty cuz met IN FEBRUARY THE SAME MONTH THEY TRIED TO EVICT NIP and they link up a month later

Why is lapd Stirring sh*t up just making a paper trail to snatch the location ... A sacred landmark now..



Why is all the nearby business being evicted out
Why nipsey brother and mom the only one dropping clues about LAPD

This is regular sh*t but its past Regular when we talking about nipsey now being gone and they let a good three month passed before they go back to the regular schedule program

When they keepthis paper trail rolling dont be surprised when black sam going have to f*ght the power to be to keep his brother store in that lot cause the laws is design for them to stragetically take the lot back plus more


You worried about the wrong sh*t perhaps GET OFF YOUR BLOCK MORE

It sucks, but if we're being realistic, it's part of the game. If it turns out they were running something illegal out of there or the store was playing some sort of role in the gang...they knew the risks
