Crenshaw and Slauson Intersection To Be Renamed In Honor of Nipsey Hussle

South Los Angeles City Councilman Marqueece Harris-Dawson announced that the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and West Slauson Avenue will be named in honor of one of its very own, Ermias “Nipsey Hussle” Asghedom.

Nipsey’s flagship Marathon Store is located adjacent to the intersection.

A petition to get the intersection named in his honor circulated online shortly after his murder with over 500,000 signatures to date.

The naming of the project, which will memorialize the culture and history of Black Los Angeles on Crenshaw Blvd., came from Nipsey.

He passionately articulated that “Crenshaw should be a destination,” further insinuating that all of the individuals riding the Metro LAX Line should stop at Crenshaw and spend their dollars in the community.

“Ermias Asghedom known as “Nipsey Hussle” was an icon and West Coast hero,”said Councilmember Harris-Dawson. 


“Nipsey’s genuine nature allowed him to be a light to everyone he interacted with from family, friends, fans, and his larger community.  As a father, brother, and son, Nipsey was a rock helping to build an empire that will continue through generations. Nipsey will always be remembered for delivering a pure, authentic Los Angeles sound, his numerous philanthropic efforts, his innovative, community-focused business mindset, and his humble heart. “

This still has me so broken up 😭😭😭😭

Issa Rae Engaged To Longtime Boyfriend

Issa Rae is engaged!

The actress will marry longtime boyfriend Louis Diame.

via People:

Rae’s Insecure costars Jay Ellis and Yvonne Orji confirmed the news while walking the red carpet at the 2019 NAACP Image Awards over the weekend.

“We’re very excited for her,” Orji told Entertainment Tonight ,with Ellis adding, “We all found out in different ways because we’re all on different text chains. We talk at different times, so we all found out at different times in different ways.”

Orji said she couldn’t be more excited for her on-screen best friend.

“The reaction was all the same, like, ‘You out here in these streets getting married, boo!?’ That was the reaction,”
she said.

Rae also attended the NAACP Image Awards, but she did not comment on her current relationship status. Her rep is not commenting.

And during her appearance on The View on Monday, she played coy when asked about her ring, saying, “I have a lot of rings on my fingers.”

Rumors of her engagement first began to swirl after she was spotted wearing a diamond ring on her recent Essence magazine cover.

Rae and Diame have largely kept their relationship out of the spotlight, though the businessman has accompanied the actress on several red carpets over the years.

Rae has said that she prefers to keep her personal life private.

“I get so much feedback about everything,” she told Marie Claire last year. “The one thing I don’t need feedback on is who I’m sleeping with.”

While speaking with Vogue, Rae expressed a similar sentiment, saying she isn’t interested in hearing fans “input” about her love life.

“I don’t want any input,” she said. “As a writer, you put everything on the table. I’ll take input on kids if I’m going to have kids. How do I not kill the kids? Work? Give me the input. Any other aspect of my life? Give me the input. But who I’m f*cking? No, I don’t need input. I’m good.”

Congrats Sis Issa!

Charlamagne Tha God On Old Mentor Wendy Williams ‘The Real Rehab She Needs Is From Kevin’

Wendy Williams’ is currently residing in a sober house, her husband Kevin’s mistress reportedly just gave birth last week, and now Wendy’s former friend amd coworker Charlamagne tha God is letting us in on why their friendship ended.

Charlamagne told Page Six “The real rehab she needs is from Kevin Hunter.”

via Page Six:

Famed New York “Breakfast Club” host Charlamagne Tha God — who was a mentee of Williams and a former pal of her husband — tells Page Six that his friendship with Hunter and Williams, who married in 1997, blew up over Sharina.

Charlamagne got his big break as Williams’ radio sidekick. The DJ and TV star — who began working with Williams on a radio show on 107.5 WBLS around 2006 — told us that he and Hudson (with whom he was not romantically involved) were longtime pals in their hometown of Columbia, South Carolina, and he had introduced Hunter to the woman at a party around that time.

When Charlamagne moved to New York for work with Williams, Hudson came too and they both moved into a condo — rent-free — owned by Williams and Hunter in Fort Lee, New Jersey.

It is believed at the time Hunter was paying for Hudson to go to school in the city to get a massage license, but Charlamagne believes Hunter was either hoping to start or had started an affair with her at the time.

Charlamagne claims that Hunter was unusually possessive over Hudson and furious with him for introducing her to other men. “Mind you, Kevin was married to Wendy at the time,” he said.“The reason Kevin Hunter and I fell out, and the reason why I don’t communicate with Wendy anymore is because of Sharina,” Charlamagne told us, describing an incident in 2009. “Kevin got upset because he thought Sharina liked one of my homeboys and he thought that I was hooking Sharina up [with other men].”

As Charlamagne and Williams continued to work together on their radio show, Hunter — Williams’ manager and a producer of her show — became more difficult, he claims. When she landed her syndicated daytime talk show in 2008, Charlamagne filmed street skits and interviews for Williams.

But he claims Hunter became even more controlling, and started to push him out. Hunter eventually fired Charlamagne, telling him never to contact Williams again, allegedly saying, “You are dead to us.”

After that incident, Charlamagne said, “Kevin has literally gone out of his way to try to stop my livelihood, to cut my head off and stop me from other jobs. He has done it a couple of times. Kevin has definitely got a couple of cease and desist letters from my attorney.”

He added that Williams — whom friends have described as being totally under the control of her husband, who manages all of her affairs — hasn’t spoken to him since, and even denied knowing who he was during an interview with Elvis Duran.

Ike Turner is that you!?.
