Aspiring rapper Eric Holder was convicted of the murder, in 2019, of Nipsey Hussle, a famous 33-year-old American rapper. Hussle was shot dead outside his clothing store in southern Los Angeles, and after his death more than 20,000 people attended a ceremony honoring him in which Stevie Wonder performed and a letter was read. by Barack Obama. Holder, who was convicted of first degree murder, has pleaded not guilty and faces life imprisonment.
Holder, who is 32, was arrested a few days after Hussle’s death, with strong evidence against him. During the trial, the New York Times wrote, Holder was presented as being quite close to Hussle and belonging to his own “gang”. It is thought that the two had an argument because Hussle had accused Holder of being (or in any case having been) a “spy”, a police informant.
Nipsey Hussle, stage name of Ermias Davidson Asghedom, was born and raised in Los Angeles and was part of a city gang as a teenager. His first record – Victory Lap – was released in 2018 and was nominated for best rap record at the 2019 Grammys. Hussle had also founded a record company, All Money In, with which he produced his own songs.
