A petition to rename the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and Slauson Avenue in South Los Angeles as ‘Nipsey Hussle Blvd’ has gone viral.
The change.org petition is asking for L.A. City Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson to help push the renaming through.

In related news, Nipsey’s bodyguard has announced he is going to retire following the rapper’s murder.
While he wasn’t with the rapper when the shooting took place, bodyguard, J Roc, released a heartfelt post, announcing:
J Roc also said that he would have swapped places with Nipsey and been shot instead and wishes he was there when the shooting happened. He explained he was in tears as he posted how he had lost:
He also vowed to look after Nipsey Hussle’s children and longtime girlfriend, Lauren London.
