Nipsey Hussle was just shot in LA ... Clonefluence has learned.
Multiple sources tell us the rapper was gunned down Sunday in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, south of the Crenshaw area. We're told he was at his clothing company called the Marathon Store. He opened the place back in 2017.
His condition is unknown at this point, but eyewitnesses say they heard multiple shots fired. Police and paramedics have swarmed the area and taped off the crime scene. Nipsey appears to have been receiving CPR on the scene as well. You can see an EMT working on him and doing chest compressions.
He even appeared to have tweeted right before the shooting, and alluded to "enemies." He wrote, "Having strong enemies is a blessing." Nipsey, the artist from the Crenshaw area of LA, is said to have ties to the Crips. That hasn't stopped him from working with artists who have rival gang affiliations. He's made music with both bloods YG and The Game previously.
He's released multiple mixtapes over the course of his 10-plus year career but just dropped his first studio album last year. It's called "Victory Lap" ... which got him a Grammy nod for Best Rap Album just a month ago. Nipsey lost out to Cardi B at the award show.
Nipsey's got four mixtapes under his belt dating back to 2005. He dropped 10 projects independently before releasing his debut album, which was distributed through his own record label, All Money In, and Atlantic Records.
