It's been over three months since Nipsey Hussle was gunned down in front of his Marathon Clothing Store in the Crenshaw district of Los Angeles.

Nipsey Hussle and his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles were the subject of a police investigation when the rapper was fatally shot outside the shop on March 31, The New York Times reports. The outlet also states that the LAPD is examining the strip mall corner area where the Marathon Clothing store was located to determine whether or not it was a hub for gang activity.

Eric Holder, 29, who allegedly has gang ties, has been charged with Hussle's murder and the attempted murder of two other people.

Nipsey Hussle is a Warner Music artist.

What specifically initiated the probe has not been revealed, according to TMZ.

While he was being investigated, Hussle was also being praised as a leader in his community.

Sparks flew Monday night on the Fantasy Suites week episode of " The Bachelorette " between star Hannah Brown and Luke Parker . I'm still perplexed as to why Lukeness Monster is around, but he is adding to the fun of it all, so let's just go with it.

The ongoing probe nearly led to Hussle's eviction from the strip mall before the rapper and a group of partners raised $2.5 million to purchase the strip, the report said.

Marqueece Harris-Dawson, a City Council member representing South Los Angeles, told the Times that he has been working for years to get answers about the investigation for Hussle and his family.

In recent years, he had been buying up real estate in the neighborhood to try become a legitimate real estate mogul.

'In our culture, there's a narrative that says, 'Follow the athletes, follow the entertainers.' And that's cool but there should be something that says, 'Follow Elon Musk, follow [Mark] Zuckerberg'.

"I think everybody in the community will do everything we can to make sure the ventures he started will continue", Harris-Dawson said.
