Los Angeles City Attorney Has Been Trying To Evict The Marathon Store From Crenshaw & Slauson For The Last 6 Months!

According to Nipsey Hussle‘s business partner the city of Los Angeles has been trying to evict The Marathon Store for the past 6 months. Prior to Nipsey Hussle’s death Nipsey’s business partner rom Vector 90 received a letter from the Los Angeles City attorney that deemed The Marathon Store a nussiance to the community. In the letter it states that the store had various illegal gang activity , and was a hangout for the Rolling 60’s. Nipsey Hussle was a former Rolling 60’s gang member, but had put his gang life in the past according to his family.

The Marathon Clothing store flagship is currently closed, but orders can be taken online. Many have still not received packages from ordering months ago, and this maybe why.

David Gross, Nipsey’s business partner was hesitant to reveal his battle with the city of Los Angeles but felt he had no other choice . Despite the city renaming Crenshaw and Slauson , Nipsey Hussle Square in honor top the late rapper, and singing his praises they are still pursuing to evict the store. Nipsey and his team of investors own the whole Slauson square where The Marathon Store resides, but their main focus is the flagship clothing store. As expected with his murder occurring outside of the store, and the frenzy of fans coming to pay respects it further propelled the city attorney’s case.

The city had been according to Gross stalking the plaza, and looking for any slip up they could hold against Nipsey Hussle, Nipsey’s older brother and partner Blacc Sam, and All Money In. The store’s location is where Nipsey Hussle would sell his mixtape’s on his journey to fame. This is nothing new to Nipsey and his team as the shops they owned were constantly raided, and they even lost their first store Slauson Tees back in 2006!

After two NYTimes articles in the past month (one in which the City Attorney leaked these docs and others)and an LA Times article coming – I have to speak. . It was never my intention to go public with this because 1) it’s damaging for the world to think I’m being investigated or engaged in conflict with a city agency 2) It’s not my story to fully tell and 3) they play the long game and will surely find a way to fuck us… . So I’ve just been playing it cool for the past 6 months while essentially locked in a standoff with the LA City Attorney and the LAPD over Slauson Plaza . The Los Angeles City Attorney’s office was trying to end us. Literally. They wanted to expel The Marathon Store from Slauson Plaza. No doubt, if Nipsey was alive they’d still be stalking it, after doggedly pursuing him, his brother, his team and his businesses for damn near a decade. To no avail. Again, their story to tell when appropriate. . But When i partnered with them to buy the lot, I got to experience the way these systems work together first hand . The City Attorney hated (with ALL their hearts )that their maniacal zeal to expel the Marathon Store from Slauson Plaza actually resulted in us buying it and planning to develop it . It was embarrassing and a slap in the face when they started trying press me to evict the store – only to find out that I’m partners with Nip, Sam and All$in So the City Attorney then came at me. And then sent the cops at me. And ultimately tried to leverage the press against me by leaking docs and emails to the NYtimes to smear us, and make our ownership of the lot seem like the problem in the Crenshaw District. That caused real problems for me that I still can’t fully address it because it’s ongoing. It hurt live deals and brought some to a compete halt. . This shit is a cold game and then some. This system is a mindless, heartless, relentless machine designed to keep us locked into some systems (jails and courts) and out of others (capital markets and property ownership). It sounds crazy and conspiratorial, only because it is. More to come… #losangeles #LA #nytimes #nipseyhussle #tmc #davidgross #themarathoncontinues 🏁
