2 Chainz, Meek Mill, & T.I. Buy Up Nipsey Hussle Marathon Merch
The outpouring of love and support for Nipsey Hussle continues.
While his city and fans worldwide continue to mourn his loss and celebrate his legacy, his Marathon Clothing store is selling out of merch.
Meek Mill and The Game are just some of the artists who are supporting their late friend by buying up T-shirts, hoodies, and hats. According to TMZ, the rappers went on a massive shopping spree at Nipsey’s famed store on Slauson Ave.
In the days leading up to Nipsey’s “Celebration of Life” at Staples Center, items have been flying off the shelves as T.I., 2 Chainz, J.R. Smith, and DeMar DeRozan dropped tons of cash in Nipsey’s honor. They refused to accept any free items and insisted on paying for the goods.
There are so many orders that the staff is having trouble keeping up with demand. Some items are already sold out. “If y’all ordered anything, it’s on the way. They’re working diligently,” said 2 Chainz.
T.I. spent a reported $10,000 and encouraged others to go online and buy the Crenshaw and Marathon-branded hoodies, sweatshirts, and tees from The Marathon Clothing web store. “Just doing my part. Your turn,” said Tip.
Fans continue to gather at The Marathon store to pay tribute to Nipsey, leaving candles, flowers, and notes for the hip-hop icon, who was shot and killed outside the shop last month.
