Nipsey Hussle was shot right outside his clothing store, "The Marathon Store," which he opened back in 2017. The rapper, who lives in the Crenshaw area of LA, is said to have ties with the Crips, but that didn't stop him from working with artists from rival gang affiliations. Some artists include YG and The Game, who are both tied to the Bloods.

The rapper passed away after being shot at close range by a young man who was able to escape with a getaway car. The police are convinced that the attack was indeed gang related.

Hussle might have known he'd have people coming after him, as just hours before the shooting, he wrote a Tweet saying "having strong enemies is a blessing."
