Original Story 4/1/19 Nipsey Hussle was fatally shot today outside of his Marathon clothing store in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, NBC News reports. Hussle was standing outside of his store with a crowd of people when an unknown person opened fire, killing Hussle and wounding two others. Police say that they are looking for a black male in his 20s and that the shooting appears to be gang-related. The Victory Lap rapper was 33 years old. He's survived by his two children and London, with whom he just had a child with in 2016.
Hussle's reach extended well beyond his own neighborhood. In the wake of Hussle's passing, it became clear how many corners of the rap community he had touched. Hiphop took social media to show him love.

Wow. I don’t even know what to say. I’m confused. Nipsey and I had just started really getting to know each other. I feel honored to have worked on his project. Nipsey represents change, he represents evolution, he represents everything our culture needs to embrace. Black ownership. Black love. Black wealth. God bless you and your family King. @laurenlondon whatever you need we are here for you. My family is your family. 🖤

Charges against DaBaby for his connection to a deadly shooting in North Carolina have been dropped, WSOCTV reports. The incident took place at a Walmart in Huntersville, North Carolina on Nov. 5, 2018. He had been charged with carrying a concealed gun and was the only person arrested in the killing of 19-year-old Jalyn Craig.
The police came to the scene after shots went off in the store. Craig had been hit in the stomach and died at Walmart. Four people were subsequently taken into custody by the Huntersville Police Department to be questioned.
DaBaby verified that he was indeed involved in the shooting, explaining that it was a matter of self-defense and that the camera footage would support his story.
.“If them gunshots ain't go off, n***a, my fuckin' daughter could've got hit, son could've got hit, me,” he said. “Fuckin' lawyers telling me not to say something and shit, fuck all that. Two n***as walk down on you and your whole muthafuckin' family, threaten y'all, whip out on y'all, n***a, let me see what y'all gon' too. You feel me?”
Rapper lil uzi vert has no problem in showing the world that he is unhappy with his current situation with DJ Drama & Don Cannon. The rapper erased all music-related content on his Instagram page, leaving just 28 selfies. He posted a story on Friday (Jan. 11) announcing this new stage in his life, writing "I wanna take the time out to say I thank each and every one of my supports but I'm done with music."
"I deleted everything I wanna be normal...I wanna wake up in 2013," he continued, before adding, "You are free."
In several posts that Uzi recently uploaded to his Instagram Stories, the rapper continued his “Free Uzi” campaign to release his next album Eternal Atake. In one of his Stories, he tagged Roc Nation during a preview of a new verse, thanking JAY-Z’s label before adding another “Free Uzi” for good measure.
What you you might of missed, is that the record his is recording is a remix to Chicago’s own GHerbo break through single “Gang Way” produced by DJ L. If you listen at the beginning the clip below you will hear the infamous drop “this is a L Beat, awww man”.
Uzi and Gherbo have a real close relationship. The two are are good friends, so the choice of using his beat is not a shocker. This move is just validating that Chicago music is has the biggest influence on this current generation of hiphop artists. DJ L producer responsible for early success for artists such Gherbo and Lil Bibby had this to say
“Chicago is hot right now, I don’t know why uzi chose to rap off the beat, I appreciate it. It just shows the influence Chicago has……Its our time, things like Ann Marie getting featured on Rolling Stone, Calboy with DreamChasers, and Juice Wrld’s success. Its happening for us again….Its our time.”

i don’t never wanna be propped up by tearing somebody else down. Seeing Cardi b win a Grammy make me feel like I won. Same with jay rock and Anderson. I feel for Travis cuz he really deserved that acknowledgement as well, but his moment is way bigger than the awards could say— J. Cole (@JColeNC) February 11, 2019
