Nipsey Hussle shot dead, suspect hires attorney Darden from O.J. Simpson case

Nipsey Hussle shot dead outside his store/TMZ.

Nipsey Hussle murdered in LA. 

Blog King, Mass Appeal

LOS ANGELES — Grammy nominated lyricist Nipsey Hussle (legal name Ermias Asghedom) has emigrated to that cosmic music studio in the sky. Around 3:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon, the west coast rap star lost his life in a rancorous shooting outside his raiment business in urban Los Angeles. He was 33. Amid adumbrates of lethal gunfire, officers were dispatched to Nipsey’s ‘Marathon Clothing’ store in the vicinity of Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard. When they arrived, the rapper was found fatally wounded.

Nipsey was shot 6 times execution-style.

Two other men were also hit.

But they’re still alive (albeit in critical condition).

The alleged gunman, 29-year-old Eric Holder, sped away in a getaway car. He has since been arrested and charged with murder to which he pleaded “not guilty.” Messages on social media appear to indicate Nipsey knew he was about to die. Roughly 30 minutes before his death, the rapper disseminated the following ominous tweet:

“Having strong enemies is a blessing.”

Dozens of lachrymose spectators congregated at the crime scene as police helicopters hovered overhead. Nipsey’s quietus has no doubt blindsided the LA community. “It ain’t just Los Angeles,” said engineer Matthew Talley. “He was an inspiration that was bigger than Los Angeles.”

“You see all these people out here?” Talley continued.

“He was really cool. He was a dope individual every time I met him.”

Singer Rihanna tweeted: “This doesn’t make any sense! My spirit is shaken by this! Dear God may His spirit Rest In Peace and May You grant divine comfort to all his loved ones! 💔🙏🏿
I’m so sorry this happened to you @nipseyhussle.”

LAPD Police Chief Michel Moore said the homicide stemmed from “a dispute between Mr. Hussle and Mr. Holder” and that “we believe they were known to each other.” Moore also said “it appears to be a personal matter between the two of them, and I’ll leave it at that.” 

Nipsey’s “Victory Lap” was nominated for “Best Rap Album” at this year’s Grammys.

He leaves behind his gorgeous girlfriend — actress Lauren London — and two beautiful children.

Anyway, conspiracy theorists believe Nipsey was extirpated as a corollary of his research into pharmaceutical practice. Word on the street claims herbal medicine is capable of suppressing AIDS, high blood pressure, anxiety and other minacious diseases.

If that’s true, medical reliance would be altered and physicians nationwide would lose millions of dollars. Nipsey was apparently on the cusp of leaking this information publicly which begs the question: Are doctors and/or the government culpable for his death?

Holder’s “not guilty” plea certainly lends credence to that notion.

Holder has also obtained the counsel of defense attorney Chris Darden — the lawyer assigned to the prosecution of O.J. Simpson. Unless there’s some sort of pro bono arrangement, we’re left to wonder how Holder is able to remunerate a high profile barrister like Darden.

Something’s really fishy about this case.

  19. Nipsey Hussle is an African American community leader who reinvested into his community, and don’t forget about the FDT song, I suspect that government might have something to do with this. If the next become G-Eazy, Macklemore or YG, my theory will be confirmed.

  20. Troy Kazmierczak

    This man was hit because he was trying to expose the pharmaceutical industry, look into it… this was not black on black violence this was the government… smh WAKE UP

  32. The death of Nipsey Hussle is going to hurt me for a while!!!! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😢😭😢😢😭😭😢😢😡😡😭😢😭😢😡😡😡😡. I’m fucking hurt!!!!!

  33. Purple Galaxy js

    This makes me mad and sad. It’s always your people that will stab you in the back. This man was helping his community and giving jobs to help the people and taken away. It makes me think if this man’s life was taken away and he did so much good for others, where does that put us? Nipsey was the last person you would think that would die from gun violence. Please help us all God this world is cold and it’s getting worse. Rip Nipsey Hussle.
    It’s so much I can say , I knew of his and listen to some of his music and should’ve been more appreciate it while he was here I’m really hurt that another black man had died for his people, he could’ve took the money and escaped like what are these other artists do but he did it and pay the price for it. We gotta stop hurting one another and pulling each other down. Is a spiritual war going on then the devil is winning. God bless this man and his family let his dream live on.

    Hey this is a straight up set up some body paying for this he was paid to murder NIPSEY Hussle he was assassinated st Valentine’s day massarce style this was a hit and broad daylight SMH I want the truth to come out this is more then what they saying it is👀👀🤔🤔🤨🤨🧐🧐

  35. At first I didn’t believe it was an assassination or a set up by the government but now that the killer has a high power lawyer like Darden now I wonder what the truth really is 🤔

  36. Some kind of conspiracy is going on. This dude ain’t got no money for Chris Darden
    😑😑😑😑😑 something ain’t right

  37. Mark my word if he dont get a maximum sentence are if the case get botched some how I believe there will be a big riot in LA and then again maybe that’s what they want. It is the year of the PIG

  38. Eric holder is a wasted sperm

  39. Question is where did he get the money to buy such a lawyer? Hmmmm

  40. richard escobar

    This punk coward shedded blood, killed 1 body, and 2 attempted murders. And still pleads not guilty. It for sure was no self defense.

  41. I think this situation with this lawyer in this whole Nipsey Hussle case should be looked at delicately all I know is things like this tend to happen in the summer in the black community erupts and burns and tears things down I hope this is not the case and I hope it doesn’t come to that I want Swift Justice True Justice for murder of Nipsey Hussle I just hope this doesn’t add fuel to a fire in the streets of LA and we have another hot summer

  42. Ya’ll should look up the definition of Pro Bono. You do not need money for a lawyer. Chris Darden will make more money on this high profile case from publicity and interviews alone then what he would normally charge his clients.

  43. Ethiopiawe lazelalem

    Lawyers want publicity in this big case but the crazy part is he said his client isn’t guilty….. like dog are you for real gtfoh👀

  44. Hope nipsey fakes his death and can live in peace in the bahamas

  45. This bad and sad on all levels..Rip Mr Nippsey 💔🌹

  46. Chris Darden is an embarrassment to the black race.

    All that education and this is who you choose to represent.
    Zero respect for Chris Darden.

    He is a loser and so is Eric Holder. That’s what I see two losers 👎

  47. hershonda ellis

    This sound and smell fishie

  48. Holder won’t last….he has a HIT on his life😂😂😂better start praying boi

  49. Frogleapshop Seller

    All these clowns making up conspiracies about Darden representing holder are the same clowns that believe Nipsey was killed by the government

  50. Lock him up for the rest of his life. Disgusting
