Nipsey Hussle Shot To Death Outside His L.A. Store

Rapper Nipsey Hussle was killed in a shooting outside Marathon clothing, his clothing store in Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon. Two other men were shot, and a suspect remained at large.

The grammy-nominated artist was shot multiple times in the parking lot of the store and was pronounced dead at the hospital.

No other information was immediately available, but just a couple of hours before, Nipsey, 33, whose real name was Ermias Ashgedom, had tweeted, “Having strong enemies is a blessing.” It’s being speculated that the killing is tied to something gang-related as Nipsey has long been affiliated with the Crips.

Nipsey released a studio album last year, “Victory Lap,” and was nominated for Best Rap Album at this year’s Grammy Awards. He was very active in his South Central community, not just starting up a clothing line, but also opening up locations and services dedicated to technology and community development for the youth.

His loss is felt by many.
