He was a Grammy-nominated rapper, businessman, father, activist, philanthropist, and now, the victim of what appears to be a senseless murder.

On Sunday, 33-year-old Hussle, real name Ermia Asghedo, was shot repeatedly in front of his Soth Los Angeles “Marathon Clothing” company.  L.A. police say three people were shot, but only Hussle’s injuries proved fatal.

The news rocked not only L.A. but the entertainment world as well. L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti joined celebs like singer Rihanna and NBA great LeBron James in turning to social media to try and get a handle on Hussle’s murder.

 

 

 

 

 

Singer Rihanna’s message was a beautiful portrait of the man as a father and musician.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NBA legend LeBron James only posted of his pain at the loss of Hussle…

 

 

 

 

 

On his last day on this earth, Hussle tweeted a message that can now be weighed as not only ironic but sadly a testament to the truth…

 

The eerily cryptic message was enough to fuel conspiracy theories from fans grappling with the reality of his murder…

Police aren’t tackling theories, but searching hard evidence to find the murderer.  At last word, they were pursuing one suspect.

Hussle was a man respected by many in the world of hip-hop for not only his musical contributions but his contributions to try and make the world a better place. According to NPR, “He overcame the obstacles of an unforgiving environment, made famous by generations of West Coast rap legends, to become one of the most beloved and inspirational figures within the culture.”

While police search for his killer, fans may find some comfort in realizing that though his death was shocking, cruel and inexplicable, the legacy Hussle leaves is one of hope that it doesn’t matter how you start the race, it’s how you finish.  For Hussle, who according to NPR was working on a project to help end gang violence and trying to economically empower marginalized communities, perhaps it is time for a “Victory Lap” in the great beyond.
