American rapper Nipsey Hustle has reportedly passed away at the age of 33.
The Grammy-nominated rapper was allegedly gunned down on Sunday in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. Nipsey Hustle was apparently at his clothing company called the Marathon Store during the unfortunate incident.
Law enforcement sources told TMZ that, 3 people were shot at Nipsey’s store, and one of those people just died at the hospital. It has been confirmed to be Nipsey.
He left behind 2 children and girlfriend Lauren London.
As expected, tributes from Hollywood stars have already started pouring in. From Rihanna, Drake, Chance The Rapper, among a host of others.
