Nipsey Hussle’s Family Says STOP All Fundraising To Help Support His Children

Nipsey Hussle’s family is politely rejecting any fundraising to support his kids — because Nipsey made sure they’d be set for the rest of their lives.

via TMZ:

Sources close to Nip’s family tell TMZ … Nipsey made sure his 2 children, Emani and Kross Asghedom, would never have to rely on other people for money. 

While there have been multiple crowdfunding pages popping up for them — including the one retired NFL star Reggie Bush started — we’re told the family wants everyone to know the kids are more than alright. 

Nipsey was remembered as a savvy businessman during his celebration of life … and for good reason. We’re told he owned all of his master recordings, his Marathon Clothing store, and he also set up multiple trust funds to make sure his kids and family would never need a handout.

As we reported … Bush set up a GoFundMe in hopes of raising $100,000 for Nipsey’s kids, personally chipping in $10k to get things started. But, that fundraiser has already been scrubbed from the internet. 

We’re told the family is grateful for the outpouring of support, but as one source put it — Nip just wouldn’t want it that way, and since he left his family financially secure … it’s just not necessary.

Ibwas think they should take all the donations and use them to continue Nipsey’s work in the community. To each his/her own.

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 😭😭😭😭
