Rapper Nipsey Hussle Shot Dead In LA

Nipsey Hussle has died, according to NBC News and TMZ.

The Crenshaw rapper was reportedly shot multiple times outside of his clothing store Marathon Clothing Company in LA. Hussle and his business partner had recently purchased the plaza that houses the clothing store, according to Forbes. They were planning to revamp the complex into a six-story mixed use community.

“Before we was renting here, I was hustling in this parking lot,” he told the publication last month. “It’s just always been a hub for local entrepreneurs.”
