Dave East buys his first store and thanks Nipsey Hussle for his inspiration
Dave East’s biggest inspiration has always been Nipsey Hussle. One of Nipsey’s biggest accomplishments in his life, and sadly the place he was murdered, was his Marathon clothing store in his hometown of Los Angeles .
Influenced by this entrepreneurial spirit, East decided he wanted to own a store himself. On Tuesday, November 30, Dave announced that he had purchased his first store in his hometown of Harlem. The New York rapper thanked his realtor and Nipsey for their help and motivation to secure the store: “ I bought my first store today. I told Nipsey that he created the template for real stores all over the world. I wish Shooter could see this shit. Soon 2022. I couldn’t have done it without @queenofharlem The Realest !!! “.
While photos Dave took in the store show the establishment may need some cosmetic work, he said it will open in 2022. East smiled as he held the keys to the store, as he adds a facet of commerce to his busy life as a leading hip-hop artist.
