The Marathon Store is the location where Nipsey Hussle was tragically gunned down back in March.

It has remained closed since his passing, but rappers close to the late artist -- like T.I. and Meek Mill -- have helped keep his memory alive by encouraging fans to continue to buy his clothing.

As The Blast reported, Eric Holder was arrested on April 2 for the murder of Nipsey Hussle. He pled not guilty a few days and his bond was set at $5 million.

His charges include one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.

Holder faces life in prison if found guilty.

The District Attorney's Office believes Holder confronted Nipsey after a conversation where the rapper accused Holder of snitching.

Holder allegedly opened fire on Nipsey Hussle while the rapper was outside his clothing store in Los Angeles.

His Kids:

Nipsey left behind his longtime girlfriend, Lauren London, as well as the 2-year-old son, Kross, they shared together.

The rapper also had a daughter, Emani Asghedom, with his ex, Tanisha Foster.

His sister is currently battling Tanisha in court in an attempt to get custody of the 10-year-old.
