Rapper Nipsey Hustle Shot Dead at 33


Crenshaw native Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed in broad daylight in the parking lot outside his store in Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon.

The 33-year-old rapper was shot six times outside of The Marathon Clothing Company in the Hyde Park neighborhood. Two employees were also wounded. Moments before the shooting, he posted a cryptic tweet; “Having strong enemies is a blessing.” 

The Grammy-nominated artist is survived by two kids and wife Lauren London. Before his passing, Nipsey was working on a documentary about Honduran herbalist and self-proclaimed healer, Dr. Sebi

He was one those rare artists who was respected by both the industry and the streets. 

Despite being a prominent member of the Rollin 60s Crip set, he had friends on both sides -- like YG and The Game
