Almost a year after Nipsey Hussle was fatally shot outside of his The Marathon Clothing store, BBC has announced an upcoming documentary called The Mysterious Murder of Nipsey Hussle, which will investigate his tragic death. The forthcoming film will feature BBC journalist Ben Zand as he speaks with those who “knew Nipsey best” and explores “conspiracy theories spreading about his death.”

“On the 31st of March 2019, the rapper and entrepreneur was shot dead. Loved by his community, Nipsey was more than a rapper – he was an icon,” the film’s description reads on the BBC website. “But that’s what made his death so confusing, the man everyone loved and looked up to was shot at least ten times on the very property he owned.” 

According to the description, Zand speaks with Nipsey’s former neighbors and friends, Los Angeles community leaders, a former Los Angeles Police Department officer, a Black Panthers branch called the Black Riders — who believe an LAPD and government conspiracy are behind Nipsey’s murder — and original Crip gang members, who claim an act of disrespect resulted in his death. The film also takes a look at Nipsey’s alleged murderer, Eric Holder.

“After his death, rumours began to swirl. Fellow gang member Eric Holder was detained to stand trial for the murder, but many suspected that he didn’t act alone,” the description continues. “Although Holder was allegedly the person to pull the trigger, some Crenshaw locals believe he may not have been the person to authorize Nipsey’s killing.”

The documentary is set to air on the BBC iPlayer on March 26. Another film about the Grammy Award-winning rapper is also in the works, helmed by Ava Duvernay and Nipsey’s Marathon Films. Duvernay’s documentary is currently untitled and set to premiere via Netflix.

Eric Holder’s murder trial is set to begin later this month or in early April.
