  • TMZ Rapper Nipsey Hussle dead at 33 after shooting outside his store in Los Angeles

U.S. rapper Nipsey Hussle has died after being shot out the front of his clothing store in Los Angeles. Three victims were transported to a nearby hospital where one was pronounced dead.

Musicians, athletes, and a handful of other artists are coming out in full force to mourn the sudden loss of Nipsey Hussle. The gunman fled, and no arrests have been made. Since news arrived of his tragic passing, his peers and supports have poured out tributes to mourn and celebrate the emcee, who earned a GRAMMY nomination this year for his Victory Lap opus.

Before the incident, the rapper tweeted, "Having strong enemies is a blessing".

Also, he independently released 10 projects through his record label, All Money In, and Atlantic Records, prior to his debut album.

2 killed in ‘random’ shooting, crash in Seattle
Police say two people were killed and two were injured after a man opened fire on vehicles including a metro bus in Seattle . During the pursuit, the suspect crashed head-on into another vehicle, killing the 70-year-old man driving that auto .

His Facebook says Hussle was "a devout member of the Rolling Sixty Crips", a national street gang that was founded in Los Angeles in the mid-1970s.

Social media reports have matched images of the clothes on a man seen bleeding in a video to those seen on Nipsey earlier.

He told the Los Angeles Times in 2018 that he managed to develop a love of music and technology. It was like living in a war zone, where people die on these blocks and everybody is a little bit immune to it. The gunman reportedly approached Hussle by foot and then fired multiple gunshots before leaving with what witnesses claim to be a waiting vehicle just near the crime scene.

This is a huge loss for the rap community and beyond, and our thoughts are with his friends and family, including his two children and his partner, actress Lauren London.
