Nipsey Hussle dead: 33-year-old US rapper shot dead in Los Angeles

The Grammy-nominated US rapper Nipsey Hussle is dead, according to a media report. NBC News reported on Sunday that the 33-year-old was shot dead in Los Angeles.

A police spokesman only confirmed the AFP news agency on request that there had been a shooting with one dead and two injured. The perpetrator is on the run.

Just hours earlier, Hussle had written on Twitter: "It's a blessing to have strong enemies." What or who exactly he meant is not clear at this point in time.

The rapper was little known for a long time. Hip-hop mogul Jay-Z then bought 100 of his mixtapes for $ 100 each. Hussle's first album "Victory Lap" was nominated for a Grammy for best rap album in February. But Hussle could not prevail against the rapper Cardi B, who won the award for her album "Invasion Of Privacy".

Music colleagues react

Music colleagues were now shocked by the death of the 33-year-old. "Gone too early," wrote rapper Snoop Dogg on Instagram. He is "sad" and remembers the good times they both had. Pop diva Rihanna wrote on Instagram that she was "shocked". "That does not make sense." She also pray to God that his mind may now rest in peace.

Nipsey Hussle's real name was Ermias Asghedom and was born in Los Angeles in August 1985. He had a son in 2016 with actress Lauren London. He also had a daughter from a previous relationship.
