Rapper Nipsey Hussle was killed Sunday afternoon, shot in broad daylight outside of his store in South Los Angeles, leaving two other people wounded, police said.
Hussle, known as much for his music as for his civic efforts in South L.A., was shot in multiple times about 3:20 p.m. and rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. He was 33.
Los Angeles police closed off the area at West Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard. Shortly before 7 p.m., officers were canvassing the area near The Marathon Store at 3420 W. Slauson Ave., searching for a suspect who police said had fled either on foot or in a vehicle.
A crowd of hundreds of mourners also gathered outside the store on Sunday evening, playing Hussle’s music as the sun set. Elsewhere, several of Hussle’s fellow rappers and other celebrities took to social media to share their shock and condolences.

 

Hussle, born Ermias Asghedom, was an up-and-coming hip-hop artist, who after releasing his highly anticipated debut album “Victory Lap” in 2018, was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rap Album.
Hussle grew up in South L.A. in the 1990s. He made no secret of his early life in a street gang, saying in a 2014 interview with YouTube channel Vlad TV, that he had joined the Rollin’ 60s, a notorious Crips gang clique, as a teenager.
“We dealt with death, with murder,” he told The Times in 2018. “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 was equally well-known in South L.A. for his work as a community organizer.
He was involved in the new Destination Crenshaw arts project. And he opened a co-working space named Vector 90 in the Crenshaw district, designed to call attention to the lack of diversity in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The goal of the co-working space, Hussle told The Times in 2018, was to serve as a conduit between underrepresented groups and corporate partners in Silicon Valley and beyond.
Hussle developed a deep love of both music and technology while growing up.
"In our culture, there's a narrative that says, 'Follow the athletes, follow the entertainers,'" he told The Times in 2018. "And that's cool but there should be something that says, 'Follow Elon Musk, follow [Mark] Zuckerberg.’ I think that with me being influential as an artist and young and coming from the inner city, it makes sense for me to be one of the people that's waving that flag."
Hussle combined his interests in several entrepreneurial pursuits, including the store outside of which he was shot. He called it a “smart store” because visitors could use an app to enhance their experience while shopping for his fashion brand, the Marathon Clothing.
Times staff writer Sonaiya Kelley contributed to this story.

The late legend Eazy-E was born 54 years ago today (Sept. 7). His daughter ReeMarkable is celebrating the date with recreations of some of the rapper's most iconic portraits.

The singer, who directed and styled the shoot, places herself in several reimagined archival images, including Ricky Powell's 1993 fisheye shot of Eazy rolling blunts at the midtown Hilton Hotel in New York. Lorenzo Smith photographed ReeMarkable, whose makeup was done by Tunchyy Marie.

ReeMarkable, who was a toddler when the N.W.A. spitter and Ruthless Record co-founder died of complications from AIDS in 1995, explained the tribute's inspiration on Instagram, where she published the photos.

I am the Spitting image of you and it warms me to see a legend every-time I look in the mirror. Today is a day for celebration as you would have came upon your 54th birthday . So here’s my gift to you . A shoot dedicated to simply, you . I directed this shoot and worked with a great team to capture your spirit daddy . I Love you & Happy Birthday , I hope you all enjoy .

Another one of Eazy's daughters, Ebie Wright, began her own project honoring the rapper's legacy in 2016 by launching a Kickstarter to fund a documentaryproposing to explore his death, which has long been surrounded by controversy.

Most recently, Ruthless signee Frost suggested in a 2015 documentary that Eazy was given "tainted needles" while receiving acupuncture in a plot launched by an unnamed "person in rap," whom he called "the devil"—a theory also maintained by Eazy's son Yung Eazy.

Nicki Minaj and Cardi B FIGHT at Fashion Week Party

They grew up just 15 miles apart — one in an apartment in The Bronx, the other in a house in Queens.

But together, New York City rap royalty Nicki Minajof Jamaica and Cardi B of Highbridge are like oil and water.

The ugly rivalry between two of the top women of rap smoldered for more than a year before exploding Friday when the hip-hop hellions had it out, WWE-style, at the Harper’s ­Bazaar Icons bash during Fashion Week.

First, a Minaj security guard threw an elbow at Cardi’s head in a lobby of The Plaza hotel.

Then Cardi threw a red platform shoe at Minaj.

 

At one point, new mom Cardi shouted at Minaj, “Let them talk about my daughter again!” before storming away from her in a huff, a fan video shows.

“Bitch, come ’ere! Bitch come ’ere!” Cardi — who gave birth to a girl, Kulture, with husband Offset in July — can be heard in another fan clip.

Minaj reportedly “didn’t even flinch” as Cardi B was led out of the party.

Cardi was, of course, hobbling due to her lost platform. But the look on her face was triumphant.

The pair’s clash dates back to May 2017, when Minaj name-dropped Offset — and his rap group Migos — in her collaboration with Katy Perry, called “Swish Swish.”

Silly rap beefs just get me more checks
My life is a movie, I’m never off set
Me and my amigos (no, not Offset).
Swish Swish, awww I got them upset!

The jab by Minaj, 35, didn’t sit well with Cardi, 25, who took to Instagram Live at the time to dish on “fake” people in the ­industry.

“A bitch like me, I was happier when I was macking in the hood,” she wrote.

“This s–t right here is so fake. When I used to be a regular bitch from The Bronx — a ’hood bitch — when somebody used to be fake to me it was cool because I could ­approach a bitch and punch her.”

A few months later, Minaj seemingly took another dig at her foe in a verse for the song “No Flag,” which also features Offset and ­Migos.

Lil’ bitch
I heard these labels tryna make another me
Everything you getting little hoe is ’cause of me.

The Trinidad and Tobago-born artist quickly ­denied the lyrics were about Cardi.

Minaj and Cardi continued to jab at one another throughout last year, making headlines once again after featuring on the same song, “Motorsport,” in August 2017.

Minaj, a rap veteran, felt that the up-and-comer didn’t pay her proper respects.

“The only thing with Cardi that really, really hurt my feelings was the first interview she did after ‘Motorsport’ came out,” the “Anaconda” rapper told Beats 1 radio’s Zane Lowe this past April.

“I remember when I first came in the game, if a female of that stature had done a feature with me on it, I would only be singing their praises and saying thank you.”

Cardi countered that she’d already kowtowed plenty.

“I already said she’s an amazing artist, paid my respect to her,” she also told Lowe.

“What do people expect? Y’all want me to say something bad. I’m not falling for that.”

Their feud superheated when Minaj seemed to insult Cardi’s talent in an ­August interview with Jay-Z’s streaming service Tidal.

“It’s silly now to compare me to women, because there’s no women that can come in right now [and] realistically can put up the stats,” she blustered.

Hours later, Cardi responded on Instagram Live, saying she was “sick and tired of people trying to discredit me.”

During the opening ceremony, she refers to herself as “The Empress” — a cheeky nod to Minaj’s newly released album, “The Queen.”

Minaj seemed to rub more salt in Cardi’s wounds — with stinging lyrics on her new album “Queen.”

They done went to witch doctors to bury the Barbie
But I double back, kill bitches, bury the body.

Fans were convinced the artist says “Bardi” — Cardi’s nickname — instead of “body.”

The animosity continues despite their shared hardscrabble upbringings.

Minaj’s father worked as a financial executive, her mother in payroll, and were both staunchly religious gospel singers. But her father struggled with drugs and alcohol, fueling a violent temper that led him to burn down their family home when Nicki was 4 years old.

“He was attempting to kill my mother. She got out before it burned all the way down,” she told Details magazine.

By 16, Cardi claims to have joined the Bloods gang; by 19 she was a stripper.

She credits stripping with helping her escape poverty and a violent relationship.

“It really saved me from a lot of things. When I started stripping I went back to school,” she said.

Friday’s wild scuffle unfolded after Minaj supposedly mouthed off to Cardi about her skills as a parent, which set the “Bodak Yellow” rapper into a rage, throwing punches, pulling hair and even throwing her cherry-red platform.

But others say Cardi may have been looking to pick a fight when she “aggressively approached” the self-proclaimed queen of rap and said, “Let me tell you something,” as she lunged toward Minaj, TMZ reported.

When security personnel tried to break up the catfight, Cardi was elbowed in the forehead, leaving her with a sizable welt and a torn red dress.

“It was ripped totally down the back. Her ass was showing,” a fashionista told Page Six of the scene. Coincidentally, a day earlier, Minaj’s dress had also torn, revealing her own derriere.

Minaj was “completely unfazed” after the rumble at The Plaza and told police she does not wish to file charges against her foe, sources told Page Six.

She continued to party after Cardi was led away.

“Nicki walked through the crowd in the ballroom with her team,” said a guest.

“She was with her bodyguards saying ‘Hi’ to people . . . then she went up to an area with couches and watched Christina Aguilera perform.”

Outside the event, Cardi told cops she also did not wish to press charges.

“No,” she said. “I just want to leave.”

But she wasn’t totally over the fight.

“I’ve let a lot of s–t slide! I let you sneak-diss me, I let you lie on me,” Cardi ranted in an Instagram post at approximately 12:14 a.m. Saturday.

“But when you mention my child, you choose to like comments about me as a mother, make comments about my abilities to take care of my daughter is when all bets are ­f–kin off!!

“Bitches talk s–t in they raps but in real life they p-ssy!! This s–t ­really is for entertainment!” the rapper added.
