Yet another top American Hip-Hop music icon was gunned down on the streets of Los Angeles, California on Sunday, according to the mayor of that violence-torn metropolis, Eric Garcetti, another big-city political leader who is always quick to blame President Trump, GOP politicians, police officials, Second Amendment advocates and others for death and violence within their jurisdictions.
The 33-year-old Grammy Music-nominated rapper known to the public as Nipsey Hussle was gunned down Sunday in South Los Angeles outside of his own clothing boutique in a shooting that left two others wounded, Los Angeles Police Department detectives told reporters.
The shooter was identified only as a black male who remains at-large. One police detective reported to Conservative Base’s Jim Kouri that the suspected gunman simply walked up to Hussle and others outside of the rapper’s clothier and began his attack.
According to a police official, the gunman fled the crime scene in a getaway vehicle that was driven by a female. All three victims of the shooting were taken to local hospitals for treatment to their bullet-wounds.
“It’s like a war zone out here! And Hussie was trying to make it better,” a local resident told the Los Angeles Times.
Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Ashedom, is being praised by the liberal-left establishment in the community as “a positive influence in the neighborhood.”
The Los Angeles Times glowingly reported that the father of two children was known to help the downtrodden in L.A. For example, he’s been known to give jobs to some homeless and even once donated a pair of shoes to every student at a nearby public school.
In a social media statement on Sunday, Mayor Eric Garcetti tweeted, “Our hearts are with the loved ones of Nipsey Hussle.”
Hussle released successful mixtapes and earned a Grammy nomination for his 2018 major-label debut album.
Although his death is being treated with the utmost respect by the news media and entertainment community, Hussle is known to display violent outbursts. For example, in a video making the rounds on social media, the Los Angeles rapper can be seen “bitch-slapping ” an unnamed man in his face.
The brief altercation was allegedly due to an argument over parking. Nipsey wanted to move some orange cones and drive through a restricted area to park his car. Nipsey’s bodyguard had an orange cone in his hand, but the man in charge of the parking smacked it out his hand. That’s when Nipsey delivered the blow.
A security guard grabbed him from behind to calm things down before Nipsey got back in this car.
