How did Nipsey Hussle die?

Nipsey was shot dead on March 31, 2019.

The shooting, outside his Marathon Clothing store in South Los Angeles, came just hours after Hussle wrote about having "strong enemies" on Twitter.

An LAPD statement on Twitter said: "At approximately 3:20pm (11:20BST) there was a shooting reported in the area of Slauson Ave and Crenshaw Blvd.

"3 victims were transported to a local hospital where one was pronounced deceased."

They later added: "The suspect in the shooting is described as a male black & LAPD South Bureau Homicide is conducting an investigation to locate him and anyone else involved."

His funeral took place on Thursday, April 11, 2019, and was almost smeared by an apparent drive-by shooting.

Los Angeles police said a woman and three men, between the ages of 30 and 50, were attacked during the rapper's funeral procession.

Was Eric Holder convicted of killing Nipsey Hussle?

On Wednesday, July 6, 2022, Eric Holder was found guilty of Nipsey's murder.

They were both a part of the gang known as the Rollin' 60s, and were both aspiring rappers.

"[Calling someone a snitch] is the worst thing you can say," says Cedric, a long-term member of a local gang.

"That's a very bad statement.

"I'm killing you if you call me a snitch."

According to prosecutors, Holder showed up "unannounced" at Nipsey's clothing store, Marathon, in Los Angeles.

The two exchanged words, which reportedly had something to do with Nipsey accusing Holder of snitching.

Holder reportedly left and then returned with a firearm.
