American rapper, songwriter, entrepreneur, and community activist from Los Angeles, whose professional name was often stylized as Nipsey Hu$$le. Emerging from the West Coast hip hop scene in the mid-2000s, Hussle initially became known for his numerous mixtapes, including his Bullets Ain't Got No Name series, The Marathon, The Marathon Continues and Crenshaw, the last of which rapper Jay-Z bought 100 copies of for $100 each. After much delay, his 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.
At about 3:25 PM on 31 March 2019, Hussle was shot several times outside his store, Marathon Clothing, in South Los Angeles. Hussle was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 3:55 PM. He was 33. Eric Holder, a 29-year-old man who had confronted Hussle earlier in the day, was arrested and charged with murder on 2 April 2019.
