The Marathon Continues: Nipsey Hussle Memorialized With Crenshaw Basketball Court Mural [Video]

View this post on Instagram

Grateful to all of the artists who contributed to this mural and have given our kids an inspirational image to look at everyday. Three days after his death, the Victory Lap billboard on Crenshaw and 60th was taken down. The billboard represented more than LA, even more than Nipsey, it represented unlimited possibilities. Our students, teachers and visitors alike, looked out of the school windows daily, and before us was the billboard of Nipsey looking up to the sky, up to the potential, up to beauty, up to our possibilities. The billboard represented true inspiration for us all, everyday, while he was still here. Now that he has passed, @veniceball has given our kids, families and community a beautiful image of a person who stood for everything society tells black people they aren’t: loyal, intelligent, creative, articulate, peaceful, kind, confident, honest and hardworking. The death of @nipseyhussle represents more than just his life, but the very reason we must continue the race he started; this is for the next generation. Thank you for inspiring me, for changing my kids’ lives and for contributing to the man my husband @ftdb is. In your honor, in honor of the men and women who paved the way for us, in revolt of the current narrative that says we are a people undeserving of greatness, we will continue running the marathon of excellence, in all that we do, in who we are and for the legacy we leave behind. Thank you, Nip, thank you LA, thank you @veniceball for your vision. Love to you all! – hattie

Crete Academy Charter School Reveals Nipsey Hussle Basketball Court Mural

The marathon continues and his legacy lives on.

Just two weeks after he was murdered at his Marathon clothing store, Nipsey Hussle’s being remembered at a local school. Administrators at Crete Academy Charter school revealed a HUGE mural painted across their basketball court of the late rapper.

Crete Academy is located in Crenshaw and just blocks away from where Nipsey was gunned down.

“For our kids to look at Nipsey and see to see everything he’s done, what he was able to accomplish and how much he gave back to the community is huge for them…because he looks like them,” said Crete Academy Founder Hattie Mitchell to CBS LA. “He grew up where they grew up. He’s the epitome of everything that they want to be and aspire to be.”

The mural was done by artist Gustavo Zermeno and the idea of Venice Basketball League CEO Nick Ansom. Ansom and the rapper were in talks about developing a community project before his passing.
Nipsey’s family the Asghedons were in attendance for the unveiling.

Take a look at Nipsey’s mural ribbon-cutting below.

Noting how blessed they are, Khloé revealed she asked guests to bring presents for the local children’s hospital in lieu of presents for True. SWEET right?!

Witcha Broke A$$: R. Kelly’s Starving Bank Account Sittin’ On -$13 After $150,000 Seized For Debts

R. Kelly Is Broke As Hell

Robert Kelly is broker than a muthaf***a. At least as far as one of his bank accounts goes.

The Blast obtained some statements from Wintrust Bank showing that they notified Kelly’s landlord that his account with them is currently negative thirteen dollars.

Kelly also had two Bank of America accounts that held 44,595.58 and $110,056.64 respectively for a grand total of $154,527.22. Of that amount, all but $625 was taken by Robert’s ex-landlord to pay his embarrassing amount of back rent.

This landlord is playing NO games. They have subpoenaed Sony Music, ASCAP, and several other banks where R. Kelly has money stored in order to get the bread they’re owed.

Robert isn’t going to have a dime to his name by the time he (hopefully) goes to prison.

Blessed be!

Sacré Bleu! Catastrophic Fire Engulfs Iconic Notre Dame Cathedral In Paris

Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral On Fire

Paris is burning.
The iconic Notre Dame cathedral in Paris is on fire as we speak. Officials told ABC that “everything is burning, nothing will remain from the frame” as the fire took down cathedral’s spire.
The roof also collapsed as workers scrambled to salvage artwork stored and artifacts inside the cathedral erected in 1260 AD.
ABC News reports that Paris Mayor Anne Hildago and firefighters warned people to stay away from the area. There have been no confirmed deaths or injuries.

Officials believe the fire may be connected to a recent $6 million restoration of the church, officials said. Last week, the statues of the apostles were removed for restoration.

Dallas Man Arrested For Accepting $200 To Beat Transgender Woman #Muhlaysia Booker In Broad Daylight

Man Arrested In Texas For Beating Transgender Woman

A hate crime investigation is underway after authorities say a man brutally beat a transgender woman while hurling homophobic slurs. Muhlaysia Booker’s family identified her as a woman seen in a video being pummeled by a man after a minor traffic accident.

The Dallas News reports that Edward Thomas, 29, was arrested Sunday in connection with the assault that was recorded on video. He faces a charge of aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury.

Authorities say Muhlaysia accidentally backed into another vehicle Saturday and the other driver, who is named as a suspect in the arrest-warrant affidavit but who has not been arrested, ran her off the road to keep her from fleeing.

The woman says the other driver pointed a gun at her and refused to let her leave unless she paid for the damage, according to the affidavit.

A crowd that included Edward Thomas then gathered and “a voice on the video” offered Thomas $200 to beat Muhlaysia. The suspect then put on gloves to accept the offer and punched Muhlaysia several times while people watched. Another suspect jumped in and stomped on the woman.

Muhlaysia was transported to a local hospital. She suffered facial fractures and a broken wrist.

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings released a statement on the assault saying;

“Chief Hall alerted me this morning to the assault at the Royal Crest Apartments and I have seen a video of what happened. I am extremely angry about what appears to be mob violence against this woman. I am in contact with the chief and she assured me that the Dallas Police Department is fully investigating, including the possibility that this was a hate crime. Those who did this do not represent how Dallasites feel about our thriving LGBTQ community. We will not stand for this kind of behavior.”

Thomas remains in the Dallas County jail with his bail set at $75,000.

We sincerely hope Muhlaysia and her family get the justice they deserve. It’s obvious that several other people need to be arrested for their involvement.
