Famed Los Angeles rapper Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed in Los Angeles Sunday afternoon (March 31). He was just 33 years old.
TMZ reports that Nipsey was among three people shot outside his Marathon Clothing store, located on the corner of Slauson Ave and Crenshaw Blvd. in Hyde Park, Los Angeles.

Oddly, right before the shooting, Nipsey took to Twitter, making mention of his “enemies”. He wrote: “Having strong enemies is a blessing.”
