ORIGINAL STORY: In a developing story, it is reported that Nipsey Hussle has been shot in Los Angeles, California this afternoon (March 31). According to TMZ, who heard the news from several eye-witness sources, the 33-year-old rapper born Ermias Asghedom was attacked with gunfire outside of his Marathon store in the Crenshaw District.
Early reports indicate that the All Money In No Money Out, Inc. founder was struck multiple times. A photo circulating on social media appears to show the Grammy-nominated artist moments before the attack, and on the ground with a blood-stained cloth over his face. After speaking to law enforcement, TMZ reports that three people were struck by shots, and one of the victims has reportedly succumbed to the injuries in a nearby hospital. Hussle opened his store two years ago, where he sells clothing, including his own line as well as exclusive colorways of New Era Roc Nation caps.
Last year, Nipsey Hussle released Victory Lap, his first major label album. That work, distributed by Atlantic Records, earned the veteran a Grammy nomination for “Best Rap Album.” It was also named one of Ambrosia For Heads’ best albums of 2018. In 2019, he released “Racks In The Middle,” a video single featuring Hit-Boy and Roddy Ricch.
