Crystal Butler started this petition to Mayor Garcetti, Mark Ridley Thomas

Nipsey Hussle was a young man who grew up in the Crenshaw district, and was a product of his environment. He joined the local gang, but wanted something more, and pursued a rap career, which made him a global household name, after deciding to go independent, and sell his CD's from his car. A modern day Cinderfella, who would gain notoriety, and recognition from artists such as Jay Z. Nipsey's music would soon get him nominated for a Grammy in 2018. As a young business minded individual, Nipsey wanted to buy into realestate, and encouraged others to do the same. This young man used his assets to buy half of the shopping center on Crenshaw and Slauson. Through his efforts, he also gave jobs to his friends in the neighborhood, and even the homeless. This young man, had visions of helping his people, and put words into actions. He was just at the beginning of changing lives, when his life was cut short by a former neighborhood friend. He lost his life, helping his community, and should be honored with that corner being named after him. How inspiring will that be for young people to see..please make this happen.
