Kerry Lathan had just come from prison when he was shot on March 31st, 2019. He was standing next to Nipsey Hussle, who was killed as they stood in front of Hussle’s Marathon Clothing Store in the Crenshaw district of Los Angeles. Lathan was arrested and has been in county jail since the shooting due to his parole prohibiting him from being around known gang members (It is widely known that Nipsey was affiliated with the Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips). However, the Department of Corrections has dropped the case and Lathan has been released. #PRESSPLAY
With the loss of hip hop artist/community activist Nipsey Hussle, the hip hop community and the community of South Central Los Angeles has felt the aftershock. However, the mourning of his passing has bought on the spirit of unity and positive activity.

It is the also the site of Nipsey’s fatal shooting that took him from this life on Mrach 31st, 2019.
