Wikipedia says this of Nipsey Hussle, while warning us not to confuse him with Nipsey Russel.
Ermias Joseph Asghedom (August 15, 1985 – March 31, 2019; born Airmiess Joseph Asghedom), known professionally as Nipsey Hussle (often stylized as Nipsey Hu$$le), was an American rapper, entrepreneur, and activist. 
906 Philadelphia houses “Home Court” purveyors of street wear in the DMV.


Home Court sells shoes, men's clothing and hats with hip-hop flavor.   

Home Court shares space with Wink'd, a lash and nail salon, (located at 950 Sligo Avenue) and more recently with Snatch'd a massage parlor. 

Meanwhile further downtown; Wink'd has a storefront at 950 Sligo Avenue.

The text shining through the front widow says “Girls Just Wanna Have Fund$.” 

The front door says appointment only But the interior is unfinished.

On the basement back-door at 906 Philadelphia Wink'd has been in crossed out in favor of Snatch'd.


It's clear I don't speak the language here. I think this says "GUZ": 

See the Urban Dictionary.

Snatch'd's slogan is:

Bad Bitches Loading....
