Ermias Davidson Asghedom, professionally known as Nipsey Hussle, was a Grammy-nominated rapper and songwriter from Los Angeles. Hussle was shot dead Sunday afternoon outside of his store, Marathon Clothing, in South Los Angeles. He was 33.
Hussle emerged as a part of the West Coast hip-hop scene in the mid-2000s and he initially became known for his numerous mixtapes, including his Bullets Ain’t Got No Name series, The Marathon, The Marathon Continues and Crenshaw.
The late rapper’s debut studio album, Victory Lap, was released in February 2018 to critical acclaim and commercial success, and was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards in 2019.
Hussle was raised in the Crenshaw neighborhood of South Los Angeles, where he was member of the local Rollin 60’s Neighborhood Crips gang.
He leaves behind his girlfriend of six years, actress Lauren London, their son together, Kross and a daughter, Emani, from a previous relationship.
