Breathtaking Nipsey Hussle Basketball Court Mural Unveiled
The 46 feet wide and 78 feet long mural was painted by Muralist Gustavo Zermano.
Zermano says he was inspired to paint the mural by his appreciation for Hussle’s community work.
“When (Nick) asked me to be a part of this, I felt like I had to contribute something bigger, so that’s when I pitched the whole Nipsey thing, like actually painting him on the court,” Zermano said. “He was a big part of helping the kids, and when I heard it was at a school that’s when I was like, it’s for real.”
Nipsey’s Father And Sister Were Present
The Nipsey Hussle Memorial Court was officially opened by Nipsey’s father Dawit Asghedom and sister Samantha Smith.
The event was labelled as a “Celebration of Life” and welcomed with a high school showcase followed by an All-Star game.
