Rapper Nipsey Hussle killed in shooting outside his L.A. store
Rest in Peace.
He really wasn't shot dead, he lingered for a while. Nonetheless, sad news and a sad loss for the community.
Nipsey Russel was a funny guy with a quick verse for every occasion. RIP Nipsey Hussle.
He was just starting to get some mainstream recognition with his album being nominated for a Grammy.
Truly sad. RIP.
Please post respectfully and in a way that is aprospos to the thread topic. Thank you.
By all accounts he was a positive force in the community and really made a difference on a local level. Big loss - RIP.
Very sorry to hear this.
I went to buy his album on Amazon and notice it's the number 1 best seller now.
As per the local news, it's the same level as John Lennon being killed.
Nipsey Hussle + RIP
While he didn't write music anywhere near the level of Lennon.
He did over 1,000 times more for the people around him.
In the black community, he was legendary.
In L.A yes, how about the east coast?
He took care of his own backyard. He did it without lip service.
He didn't have the capital to move YET.
He had that vision and we knew he'd do it.
Here on the east coast amongst all the hip hop heads I talk to.
He was that generational one that we seem to lose over and over and over again.
This one was really painful.
I have never heard of this guy, but it is always sad to hear of this kind of thing. Rest In Peace mate
That sounds like a huge loss. I didn't know about his East Coast cred.
Absolutely no idea who he was. But RIP
FDT was one of the few rap songs of recent years I could get into, not just because of the subject matter but because it was catchy. Funnily enough, I had it going round my head a couple of days before he died. Strange how that works.
Multiple people were injured in a massive stampede during a memorial in Los Angeles for slain rapper Nipsey Hussle on Monday, as hundreds were paying their respects near the scene where he was fatally shot.
Chaos erupted outside of the late rapper's Marathon Clothing store near the Crenshaw District on Monday night when a large crowd of mourners rushed to flee the scene after hearing a loud noise, according to police.
At least 19 people were transported to local hospitals with various trample-related injuries, and several others were treated on the scene for minor injuries, the Los Angeles Fire Department said. Two victims were suffering from "critical" injuries, and two others had injuries described as "serious." At least one person may have been hit by a vehicle.
That's screwed up
It really is.
Guess they caught the killer not far from me and took him to the station even closer to be. Helicopter right over my house.
