Grammy nominated US rapper Nipsey Hussle has been shot dead in Los Angeles on Sunday, 31 March, NBC News reported. Nipsey had been nominated for the Grammy in the Best Rap Album category for Victory Lap last February but lost out to Cardi B.
For a long time he has been a part of the rap circuit and the 33 year old had struggled to find fame. He had begun selling his own mix tapes which Jay Z once bought 100 for $100 each.
The man who shot Nipsey is yet to be caught.
