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.

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.
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.
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.
UPDATE: Muhlaysia Booker’s family tells me she’s home from the hospital continuing to recover. They say she’s got a broken wrist and several facial fractures. They’re still hoping hate crime charges will be pursued after the Oak Cliff assault. https://t.co/BP73lDNIVY@NBCDFWpic.twitter.com/5KAh1pRPtl
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.
For years now Tyga has been releasing what is essentially the same song over and over and over and over and over and over again. And for years now the ladies have been shaking their a$$ and droppin’ it low over and over and over and over and over again.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it is how the saying goes.
We couldn’t understand around 50% of the words coming out of Blueface‘s mouth here, but watching his point and smile at sneakers is thoroughly entertaining, we guess. The “Thotiana” rapper goes shopping for footwear with Complex here and talks about his sports influences, his new Porsche and more.
