Jhené Aiko to postpone music release out of respect for Nipsey Hussle

Councilman Harris-Dawson will officially file a motion this Friday to have the intersection of Crenshaw Blvd. and West Slauson named "Ermias "Nipsey Hussle" Asghedom Square".

The decision comes days ahead of a memorial service for the late star, where tickets are thought to be changing hands online for in excess of $500.

Just a week after the untimely death of U.S. rapper Nipsey Hussle, it has been announced that a Los Angeles intersection will be renamed in his honour. Tickets will be available from Tuesday at 10 am and will be free of charge.

"A memorial event is taking place to honour Nipsey at Los Angeles" Staples Center on Thursday.

Holder has been charged with murder and attempted murder. Holder entered a plea of not guilty in court. However, CNN.com reported the shooting was a personal dispute and while Los Angeles police Chief Michel Moore "declined to elaborate on the feud between the two, saying he didn't want to jeopardize any potential prosecution, but he said the suspect approached Nipsey and others multiple times, engaging them in conversation". Known as a member of the Rollin 60s Crips gang he also spoke out about gun violence, collaborating with the LAPD to promote safer communities and investing in neighborhood community spaces and businesses including the store where he was killed.

This week, Aiko noted her plans to delay her music, explaining that, out of respect to Nipsey Hussle, she'd like to hold off until the timing feels better.

Now, barely a week after his murder, the Los Angeles Times reports that a South Los Angeles intersection is set to be renamed in the rapper's honour.
