Nipsey Hussle, born Ermias Asghedom, was shot multiple times on Sunday. The shooting occurred in the area of Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard. Two other people were shot and wounded, one of whom was taken to a nearby hospital. All three were shot in the parking lot outside the store. Hussle did not survive the shooting.

Victory Lap, Nipsey Hussle’s debut studio LP for Atlantic Records, was nominated this year for best rap album at the Grammy Awards. News of his death prompted an outpour of support from musicians and the community of Los Angeles, where Hussle was born.

In 2010, Hussle founded the record label ‘All Money In’, which he debuted with the release of “The Marathon,” the rapper’s fifth official mixtape. His 2013 “Crenshaw” release sold more than a thousand cassettes each priced at $100.

The next year, he performed across the country while on his Crenshaw Tour. Hussle teamed up with dozens of successful artists, including Kendrick Lamar, Drake, YG, Ty Dolla Sign, Meek Mill and Young Thug.

He was not only just a musician but also a business man. He made moves outside the music industry. Last year he launched the first Marathon Clothing smart store. He also owns The Marathon Agency, SC Commercial Ventures, Proud 2 Pay and All Money In No Money Out Records.
