Nipsey Hussle's real estate investments in his hometown of Los Angeles were well known.
What was less known is that his empire was about to get bigger.
The 33-year-old, who was killed on March 31, had an ownership share in a Las Vegas resort which was slated to open next year.
His business partner David Gross jumped on Instagram and spoke on Nipsey's involvement in the Virgin Las Vegas hotel and casino.

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 #TheMarathonContinues 🏁
