Law enforcement sources report Nipsey died after being shot earlier this evening. He was 33 years old and is survived by a daughter, Emani, and a son, Kross, the latter whose mother is actor Lauren London.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that three people were shot at the store, which Nipsey operated after opening in 2017. The suspect is thought to be a Black male in his 20s, and sources say the man came up to Nipsey and others on foot and fired multiple shots before fleeing in a vehicle driven by a woman. Two other victims remain in serious condition, NBC reports.
Before the shooting, Nipsey tweeted a mysterious message on his Twitter account that reads, “Having strong enemies is a blessing.”
In the aftermath of Nipsey’s death, artists from all corners of hip-hop have paid their respect to the rapper, who left his mark in the game with street-savvy lyrics and ambitious anthems for street dwellers with aspirations of being more. One of the first to pay their respects was Meek Mill.
“Broke me…. we really fighting for our lives against our own kind and really have to take risk and match the level of hatred that we are born in,” Meek wrote in a tweet. “I’m tired :pray::skin-tone-5: prayers for my brother and his family.”
