Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom, was gunned down outside his retail company in South Los Angeles in April 2019.

Deputy District Attorney John McKinney told the jury about the brutal murder early on in the trial. Holder kicked Nipsey in the head after filling his body with lead, claiming it was proof of a personal attack.

He then told the rapper “You’re through,” to which Nipsey replied, “You got me.”

According to police, Hussle was hanging in a parking area in front of his establishment when Holder confronted him and shot him multiple times. Hussle was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was declared dead. Two other people were injured.
