Rapper Nipsey Hussle Killed, 2 Others Shot in Front of His Los Angeles Clothing Store

Grammy-nominated rapper Nipsey Hussle was killed in a shooting that occurred outside his clothing store in Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon.

Hussle was one of three individuals struck during the shooting. The two other male victims were both listed in serious condition at a local hospital, NBC News reported.

According to the LAPD, a male fled the scene outside Hussle's Marathon Clothing Company on Slauson Avenue and remains at large. No other information is known about the shooting or the suspect.

Hussle, 33, grew up in Los Angeles and spent over 10-years creating mixtapes and other albums. He signed a deal with Atlantic Records in 2017 and released his Grammy-nominated album "Victory Lap" in 2018.

Born Ermias Ashgedom, Hussle was a known affiliate of the Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips, and often referenced his life growing up around the gang in his music.

"I grew up in gang culture We dealt with death, with murder. It was like living in a war zone, where people die on these blocks and everybody is a little bit immune to it. I guess they call it post-traumatic stress, when you have people that have been at war for such a long time. I think L.A. suffers from that because it's not normal yet we embrace it like it is after a while," Hussle told the Los Angeles Times in 2018.

Hussle is survived by his girlfriend Lauren London and two children. The couple previously took GQ Magazine's couple's quiz, which was posted to Twitter on Thursday.

Before the shooting, Hussle took to Twitter to post, "Having strong enemies is a blessing."

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James replied to Hussle's tweet with a prayer emoji after news broke that the rapper had been shot, and later tweeted that the news of Hussle's death "hurt."

Drake also reacted to the news, posting on Instagram, "My whole energy is just at a low right now hearing this. We just linked for the first time in years and said we were gonna do a new song this summer cause it had been too long. You were having the best run and I was so happy watching from distance fam nobody ever talks down on your name you were a real one to your people and to the rest of us. I'm only doing this here cause I want the world to know I saw you as a man of respect and a don. Rest easy my g."
