Ambrosia For Heads extends condolences to the family, friends, and fans of Nipsey Hussle.

The 33-year-old rapper was killed in a shooting outside his clothing store in the same L.A. neighborhood he was hoping to improve.

Los Angeles-based rapper Nipsey Hussle died on Sunday after being gunned down outside the clothing store he owned near Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard.

Early reports indicate that the All Money In No Money Out, Inc. founder was struck multiple times.

Mike Lopez of the Los Angeles Police Department claimed on Sunday that this is an ongoing investigation and that no one has been detained. In 2010, Hussle founded the record label All Money In, which he debuted with the release of "The Marathon", the rapper's fifth official mixtape.

- In addition to the man who was killed, the two other victims were listed as stable at a hospital, said police, who said a male suspect fled in a auto. More details will be available when a full autopsy report is released.


A number of celebrities, including Drake, Snoop Dogg and Pharrell Williams, paid homage to rapper Nipsey Hussle on social media.

It is believed Hussle had ties to the Crips, one of LA's largest street gangs.

"I grew up in gang culture", Hussle said in a 2018 interview with the Los Angeles Times.

"It's like a war zone out here", one mourner told the Times.

Hours before the shooting, he tweeted this cryptic message: "Having strong enemies is a blessing".

He has a child with actress Lauren London and the pair appeared in a GQ magazine profile last month.
