Nipsey Hussle was shot in 2019 outside of his clothing store. Eric Ronald Holder Jr. was convicted in the shooting, and was sentenced to 60 years to life earlier this year. In March, the Comedy Hype podcast featured ex-LAPD officer Bernard Robins, who claimed that it's possible that police ordered the rapper's death. He said, "I've never witnessed any law enforcement officers say that there was something going on or even eluded to it. But there's that possibility."
Robins added, "We know a lot of the positive things that he was doing in the community. So, there's definitely that possibility that they were that determined to stop what he had going, that they probably could have sent [Eric Holder Jr.] to go and do that." He continued, stating, "I think also that they said [Eric] was an informant for law enforcement. That was a part of the issue that he had with Nipsey Hussle allegedly so we don't know. We don't know what was going on behind those closed doors."
