Black Sam To Open Second Marathon Clothing Store

Nipsey Hussle’s family is planning to open “The Marathon Clothing store No 2” in Los Angeles this year, fulfilling a longtime dream of the late rapper.

Samiel Asghedom, Hussle’s older brother, said his family had purchased commercial property in the Melrose arts district in LA and will open The Marathon store No 2 there for the popular clothing brand.

“This second location is a dream that Nipsey always had, and it’s important that his kids are able to see his plans fulfilled,” said Asghedom, 39.

The original store at Crenshaw Boulevard and Slauson Avenue, is closed but will remain a site where fans can visit and pay tribute, he said. The surrounding commercial lot that the family owns will eventually be transformed into a community space offering free music lessons for youth, modeled after an impactful program Hussle completed as a kid.
