It isn’t clear who caused the destruction or any motive. That said, there’s been increased violence in the area since Hussle’s death. Last year, the Los Angeles Times reported the area experienced a man being fatally stabbed and numerous tourists being robbed.

Last August, in preparation for construction on a mixed-use development called Nipsey Hussle Tower, A fence was erected around the strip mall. Nipsey opened the Marathon Clothing store in June 2017.

On March 31, 2019, Nipsey Hussle was gunned down in the strip mall he owned. Shortly afterward, the LAPD arrested Eric Holder and charged him with the fatal shooting of the rapper.
