American rapper Nipsey Hussle died in a shootout outside his Los Angeles boutique Sunday afternoon.  

The LA police (LAPD) confirmed to TMZ that the 33-year-old rapper is one of three victims of the act whose perpetrator is still on the run.   

Minutes before being murdered, Hussel had tweeted that “having powerful enemies is a blessing”, which makes his death even more troubling. 

Ermias Davidson Asghedom of his real name is survived by his girlfriend Lauren London and two children. 

In 2018, after more than a decade in the world of hip hop, Hussle released Victory Lap , his first studio album. The album had been praised by critics.

More details to come.
