As previously reported on REVOLT, today (July 6), Eric Holder Jr. was found guilty of first-degree murder for killing rapper Nipsey Hussle.

In the wake of the news circulating on social media, those who knew Hussle or enjoyed his music rejoiced over the slain rapper finally receiving justice. The friend and longtime collaborator of Hussle, Karen Civil, shared a blue heart on her Twitter account shortly after the news broke.

One fan of the rapper shared that it is unfortunate that he is no longer here; however, she learned a lot about him and his vision and was a true fan of his movement.

Another commenter expressed that while enrolled in grad school, she was assigned to cover a piece of public art. She chose a mural of Hussle and added, “Murder is tragedy, justice is tricky, and Nip deserved so much more. We all do,” she tweeted.

Hussle tragically died in March 2019 after Holder shot him outside his store, The Marathon Clothing, in Los Angeles, California. Hussle’s survivors include his longtime girlfriend, Lauren London, and two children, Emani and Kross Asghedom.
