Nipsey Hussle Murdered Outside of His Store in Los Angeles

In unfortunate breaking news, Nipsey Hussle was gunned down this afternoon outside of his clothing store in Los Angeles. He was 33. NBC News released the following statement:

The Grammy-nominated rapper Nipsey Hussle was killed in a shooting outside his clothing store in Los Angeles, multiple law enforcement sources said. Two other men were in serious condition, and a suspect remained at large.

No further information was immediately available about the shooting at Marathon Clothing on Slauson Avenue in South Los Angeles. But just a couple of hours before the shooting, Hussle, 33, whose real name was Ermias Ashgedom, had tweeted, “Having strong enemies is a blessing.

Nipsey was loosely affiliated with skate culture through the Fairfax retail scene. You can view a video of his performance at the Diamond Supply Co. and Crooks & Castles stage at the 2013 Welcome To The Block Party shot by Nick Tershay below, as well as personal memories from Stevie Williams and Bobby Hundreds.
