The man convicted of gunning down rapper Nipsey Hussle was sentenced to 60 years to life in prison.
A Los Angeles judge handed down the sentence to Eric R. Holder Jr., who was found guilty of the 2019 first-degree murder of the 33-year-old Grammy-nominated hip-hop artist outside the clothing store Hussle founded, the Marathon, in the South Los Angeles neighborhood where both men grew up in very similar circumstances.
After the monthlong trial, jurors in July also convicted Holder of two counts of attempted voluntary manslaughter and two counts of assault with a firearm for gunfire that hit two other men at the scene who survived.
Holder was not eligible for the death penalty.
