Nipsey Hussle: The rapper's last words, revealed

LOS ANGELES — Rapper Nipsey Hussle's final words may have led to his death.

On March 31, Grammy-nominated artist Nipsey Hussle was shot dead in front of his apparel store in Hyde Park, Los Angeles.

Sources have told TMZ that Hussle's killer returned to shoot him again after hearing his final words.

According to the LAPD, 29-year-old gang member Eric Holder approached a group of men outside Hussle's shop and conversed with them.

He later returned at 3:20 p.m.

And opened fire at the group.

CCTV footage show Hussle and another man fall to the ground as the rest run away.

Hussle allegedly raised his head off the ground and addressed the shooter saying, 'You shot me, you got me, I'm good.'

Surveillance videos show the shooter then returning and firing additional shots at Hussle as he lay on the ground.

The rapper ultimately died from gunshot injuries to the head and torso.

According to TMZ, Hussle most likely died after the second round of shots.

Holder is now in police custody and has been placed in solitary confinement to prevent inmates from attacking him.

Sources have told Variety that Hussle's memorial service will be held this Thursday at the Staples Center.

Apart from his music, Hussle was known for his work as a community advocate.

According to LA Magazine, Hussle was scheduled to meet with the LAPD a day after his murder to discuss new ways to manage gang violence in the city.
