Nipsey Hussle Was a Partial Owner of Resort and Casino, Says Business Partner
Nipsey Hussle invested in a resort and casino that's opening in Las Vegas in 2020, according to his business partner.
David Gross, who Nipsey invested in various businesses with before shot and killed last month, used a Monday night (April 15) Instagram post to reveal details about the endeavor.
"This was about 4 months after our syndicate (@djkhaled, @luoldeng9, @rdpeebles) put in a bid for the Viceroy Santa Monica," Gross said in the caption for a photo of him and Nipsey. "We were unsuccessful in that but we still shared our attempt with the world. Some people were puzzled why we would share a “failure” but we knew...A few weeks later, senior execs from Virgin Hotels reached out to Atlantic (@dallaslifestyle) to meet with you to see if we were serious about being in the hospitality space. We were. This is the meeting a couple months later, that would result in us becoming partial owners, of not a hotel... But a resort and casino in the desert...The Virgin Las Vegas coming 2020 #legend #facts."
The casino is one of many businesses that Nipsey invested in, and a large part of the reason why his two children, Emani and Kross Asghedom, are financially set for their futures. So much so, in fact, that the late rapper's family has decided to turn down all crowdfunding initiatives that have been launched for the kids, including one started by Reggie Bush.
Shortly after Nipsey's passing, the former NFL star and his wife set up a GoFundMe with a goal to raise $100,000 for the kids. They kicked it off with their own $10,000 donation, but it has since been removed at the request of Nipsey's family.
