The 33-year-old rapper was shot six times outside of The Marathon Clothing Company in the Hyde Park neighborhood. Two employees were also wounded. Moments before the shooting, he posted a cryptic tweet; “Having strong enemies is a blessing.”
The Grammy-nominated artist is survived by two kids and wife Lauren London. Before his passing, Nipsey was working on a documentary about Honduran herbalist and self-proclaimed healer, Dr. Sebi.
