Rapper Nipsey Hussle shot multiple times in South L.A. Rapper Nipsey Hussle was shot multiple times Sunday afternoon in South Los Angeles, law enforcement sources said. The shooting occurred in the Hyde Park neighborhood. His condition was unknown. Los Angeles police had closed off the area as the investigation continued. Hussle, born Ermias Asghedom, was from South L.A. and has talked in the past about his early life in a street gang. He is a well-known community organizer who most recently was involved in the new Destination Crenshaw arts project. He told The Times in 2018 that he managed to develop a love of music and technology. “I grew up in gang culture,” he said. “We dealt with death, with murder.

Samiel Asghedom, the older brother of Nipsey Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom, speaks at Nipsey Hussle: A Celebration of Life, a three-hour memorial for the slain rapper at Staples Center on April 11, 2019.

LOS ANGELES — Nipsey Hussle's Celebration of Life, attended by thousands Thursday, featured tributes from some of the world's biggest names.

Former President Barack Obama penned a heartfelt letter, which was read from the stage; Snoop Dog held back emotion speaking of the fellow rapper; Stevie Wonder sang.

But it took Hussle's heartbroken brother and best friend Samiel Asghedom to truly show the depth of pain and loss since the Grammy-nominated rapper was shot and killed March 31.

Harris commemorates slain rapper Nipsey Hussle: 'An inspiration'

Harris commemorates slain rapper Nipsey Hussle: 'An inspiration' Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) tweeted Monday in remembrance of Los Angeles rapper Nipsey Hussle, who was killed in South Los Angeles Sunday, calling him "an inspiration." 

Sources tell us Nipsey and his brother , Samiel Asghedom , were fans of the restaurant and would come in to dine often. As The Blast reported, tickets for Nipsey ’ s memorial sold-out almost immediately once they became available online Tuesday.

The caller on the other end of Samiel Asghedom ' s phone was panicked but clear. His younger brother — known to the world as rapper Nipsey Hussle , but to Samiel as just Nip — had been shot. It was Sunday afternoon — hours before hundreds of mourners would descend on South Los Angeles

"You made the world proud," said Asghedom from the stage at the Staples Center, feet away from his younger brother's flower-covered casket.


Three years older than Hussle, Asghedom was so clearly heartbroken that there was a question of whether he could deliver the entire speech. Asghedom gripped the microphone tightly in his right hand and stared downward, his voice often cracking in emotion. But his long silences were all the more powerful as Asghedom conveyed he was still dealing with the senseless shooting death and hoped something good could come from the tragedy.

Nipsey Hussle ‘was a protector.’ His parents and girlfriend Lauren London speak out

Nipsey Hussle ‘was a protector.’ His parents and girlfriend Lauren London speak out In the days since rapper and community activist Nipsey Hussle was gunned down outside of his clothing store Sunday, his loved ones have taken comfort in each other, huddling, as they have for years, at Hussle’s grandmother’s house in South L.A. On Thursday, Hussle’s mother, Angelique Smith, paused in the middle of a story about how her son once hounded his school counselor to test him for the gifted program. “He recognized at an early age his own capability,” she told The Times. “His own potential. He has always known.

“Ermias Asghedom known as “ Nipsey Hussle ” was an icon and West Coast hero "As a father, brother , and son, Nipsey was a rock helping to build an empire that will continue through Nipsey Hussle ' s memorial service will take place this Thursday (April 11) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Nipsey Hussle ’ s brother , Samiel Asghedom , was arrested last Friday (March 19), following reports of an altercation in Los Angeles that allegedly involved the 2011 Freshmen and his former manager Eugene “ Big U” Henley. XXLMag.com reached a rep for the LAPD, who would not confirm the rumors

"It changed everything I thought I understood," he said. "Gotta be something past this for bro to go out like that."

Asghedom's stories Thursday were priceless and profound, relating how Hussle, at 12, started bringing home computer parts and laying them out on their shared bedroom floor. At first the older brother scoffed at the idea of building a computer. But Hussle persevered.

Before he knew it, "I could not believe this, he had built a computer," Asghedom said. "And it was working. I was amazed. It was mind-boggling."

There were tales of toughness, as Asghedom related being knocked out cold in a fight with neighborhood bullies, and came to consciousness to see Hussle in battle. "Bro held it down while I was out, for sure," he said.

But it was the story of a brilliant, magnetic businessman who gave back to his community that fully emerged. Asghedom highlighted Hussle's Marathon Clothing line, set up in the same strip mall where the aspiring performer used to sell his CDs. The corner of Slauson and Crenshaw, where the store stands, is now hallowed ground and a powerful symbol.

Asghedom also said the two used to talk about death.

"We don’t know if we’re going to go at 80, 60, 30. Or 20," he recalled, his voice finding power. "The one thing is that when you go, you go the right way. You stand up for what you believe in. You put your money where your mouth is. And you never fold. Never let the pressure sway you from doing what you want to do. Never let the politics stop you from coming around and staying around. And I hope everyone knows that’s what bro did. Bro stayed and he died on Crenshaw and Slauson."

Before he left the stage, Asghedom said, "I love him. And I hope I didn’t leave anything out man."

The roaring crowd made it clear he had not.

Attendee Simoneau Wagner, 31, who brought her two sons Jeremiah, 9, and JaCoreyon, 7, told USA TODAY the words and the bond of brotherly love moved her.

"It was inspiring. They had each other and they built on that and made it blossom into something amazing," Wagner said. " It touched my sons too, because they're also close in age, share a room, fight and play like they did. The relationship (Asghedom and Hussle) had is what I want my sons to have."
