The New York Times report that Nipsey Hussle was and still is being investigated into his gang ties, the Los Angeles Police Department is attempting to clarify the report, according to TMZ. The investigation is still ongoing reportedly even after his murder, but according to TMZ, the LAPD states they are not looking into Nipsey Hussle directly.
TMZ states the police are investigation the gang activity around his Marathon Clothing store on the corner of Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard. TMZ stated their sources are allegedly from two separate agencies. There are no specifics given, but the plan is to eliminate the issue they are probing.
No details were given about how Nipsey was directly connected to the investigation, but it appears it had to do with his openly acceptance of being apart of the Rollin 60’s Neighborhood Crips. It also makes sense that Nipsey Hussle would interact with gang members he was assisting with bettering their life through jobs as a community activist.
