Rapper Nipsey Hussle killed in shooting outside his L.A. store Two other men were in serious condition in the incident at’Marathon Clothing in South Los Angeles. A suspect remained at large. LOS ANGELES — 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.” A large crowd of people, many of them crying, gathered at the intersection as police and media helicopters whirred overhead. One of them was Matthew Talley of Denver, the engineer and director known as Megatron. “It ain’t just Los Angeles. He was an inspiration that was bigger than Los Angeles,” Talley said. “You see all these people out here? … “He was really cool,” Talley said. “He was a dope individual every time I met him.” Rest in Peace Twitter Hussle and actress Lauren London began dating in 2013, and welcomed their first child together on August 31, 2016. London had children from a previous relationship with fellow rapper Lil Wayne, while Hussle had young daughter named Emani. The internet loved London, and Nipsey Hussle together. Whether it’s appearing at the 2019 Grammys, where Nipsey was nominated for his first studio album, or flirting under each other’s Instagram posts. Nipsey Hussle was born Ermias Asghedom in 1985. Raised in the Crenshaw neighborhood of Los Angeles, Nipsey left his parents’ home at age 14, living with his grandmother and joining the Rollin’ 60s, a subset of the Crip gang. He began releasing music in 2005, putting out a series of mixtapes that earned him attention from other notable artists. He released a collaboration with Drake (“Killer”) in 2009 and appeared on Snoop Dogg’s Malice in Wonderland album the following year. After a brief record deal with Cinematic Music Group/Epic proved unfruitful, Nipsey founded his own label, All Music In. He would continue with a streak of mixtapes and feature appearances throughout the next decade, working with artists including YG, Rick Ross, 9th Wonder, and many more. His 2013 mixtape Crenshaw made waves after he made a limited physical edition run available for $100 each. In the past decade, Nipsey made a name for himself as an entrepreneur. He opened the Marathon Clothing “smart store” and a STEM education center called Vector 90, both in the Crenshaw district. He was widely known on the west coast and reached an even wider audience after featuring on YG’s “FDT (Fuck Donald Trump)” in 2016. While Nipsey’s debut album Victory Lap was announced in 2014, it wasn’t until 2018 that it was finally released. The album featured appearances by Kendrick Lamar, Diddy, The-Dream, and more, and netted the rapper a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album.
