33-year-old Grammy-nominated rapper Nipsey Hussle has reportedly been shot dead. The attack happened Sunday in Los Angeles’ Hyde Park area, outside of his Marathon Clothing Company store which he opened in 2017. Two other people were also shot outside his store.
Nipsey Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Davidson Asghedom, grew up in South Los Angeles and was said to be an active gang member of Rollin’ 60s street when he was a teenager.
He was known for being a strong active community organizer, who was interested in the growth and development of his community.
Earlier on Sunday, before he was shot, he tweeted “Having strong enemies is a blessing”
Tributes have been flowing in since the news of his death broke from Rihanna, Snoop, Drake, Lebron and John Legend.
There have been speculations that Nipsey death was a government-organized crime to keep the rapper shut, as it was reported that Nipsey was spreading the word that the cure of Aids had being found by his doctor friend Dr. Sebi who is also late.
Hussle is survived by his two-year-old son Kross as well as a daughter Emani.
The suspect who is only identified as a black male is yet to be identified, we will keep you updated when we get more information.
