Nipsey Hussle was fatally shot in the US city of Los Angeles on Sunday, March 31, 21019. A Los Angeles police department spokesman could not confirm the deceased victim’s name but stated that a shooting on Sunday afternoon had killed one person and wounded two others. The police arrested a man in connection with Nipsey’s murder.
Ironically, just hours earlier, Nipsey Hussle had tweeted: “Having strong enemies is a blessing.”
The investigating team stated that they are searching for Eric Holder, 29, who they said in a news release is suspecting of fatally shooting Hussle and wounding two others Sunday afternoon.
The police said that they believe Eric Holder fled the scene in a 2016 Chevy Cruze that was waiting in an adjacent alley and was driven by an unidentified woman. The car’s license plate is 7RJD742.
Post this tragedy, his girlfriend, Lauren London stated that she was completely lost after the murder of her boyfriend Nipsey Husslein. For her, he was a protector and a best friend.
Lauren London, 34, and Nipsey had been in a relationship for around six years and have a child together – two-year-old Kross Asghedom.
Nipsey and Lauren started dating after she tried to get hold of an expensive, limited-release edition of one of Nipsey’s mixtapes as a present for her co-stars in a television show The Game.
After an Instagram follow, the two began DM-ing and in an interview with GQ, Nipsey said that they had been building ever since.
In that feature from February this year, Lauren had stated that Nipsey had started getting more of a platform to be really clear about his message.
Nipsey Hussle, 33, was a long part of the underground rap circuit, and had struggled to find fame but began selling his own mixtapes, which hip-hop royalty Jay-Z once bought 100 of for $100 each.
He was nominated for Best Rap Album for Victory Lap, his first formal album that finally dropped last February after six years of teasing, but lost out to rap’s woman of the moment Cardi B.
