Eric R. Holder Jr., the man who murdered Grammy-nominated rapper, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Nipsey Hussle, was sentenced to 60 years to life in prison in a Los Angeles courtroom on Wednesday.

Hussle, born Airmiess Joseph Asghedom, was fatally shot in 2019 outside the Marathon Clothing store he owned in South LA.

Holder, who was also found guilty of two counts of attempted voluntary manslaughter for shooting two other men at the scene, was sentenced to an additional 10 years for assault with a firearm.

Hussle was a leading advocate against gun violence and a community leader who worked on developing his neighborhood and creating opportunities for kids. 

Prior to his death, he was scheduled to meet with LA Police Commissioner Steve Soboroff and LA Police Chief Michel Moore to discuss ways to stop gang violence across the city. 

After Hussle's death there was an outpouring of grief and tributes from fans, fellow artists and public figures. His funeral was held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, drawing thousands of mourners.

In August 2021, Hussle was posthumously honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on what would have been his 37th birthday.
