The Marathon Clothing store was shut down after Nipsey passed away and a gate was placed around the area, but Lauren London recently announced that a tower would be placed there in her late mate’s honor. “We are putting up a gate [that will] enclose the plaza at 3420 W. Slauson to start the early development stages of the forthcoming Nipsey Hussle Tower to commemorate and honor the life and legacy of Nipsey,” she said.
