Eric Holder Jr., the man convicted of murdering rapper Nipsey Hussle, has been condemned to prison for 60 years to life. Holder was found guilty of first-degree murder in July of 2019 for killing Hussle outside his South Los Angeles clothes store.


On Wednesday, Superior Court Judge H. Clay Jacke sentenced Holder in a Los Angeles courtroom after hearing from one of Hussle’s friends and reading a letter from Holder’s father. Holder was also convicted of two counts of attempted voluntary manslaughter after the shooting injured two people.


Holder’s attorney, Aaron Jansen, stated that the verdict will be appealed. “With the high-profile circumstances surrounding the case, it was always going to be difficult,” Jansen told ABC News.


Holder’s conviction came three years after he was shot numerous times outside his Marathon Clothes business. Prosecutors told the court at the opening of Holder’s trial last June that his acts were planned and intentional. Assistant District Attorney John McKinney claimed Holder knew he was going to kill the rapper. Hussle, born Ermias Asghedom, was hit at least ten times, according to McKinney, who added that Holder also kicked the Victory Lap rapper in the head before fleeing the scene.


McKinney claimed the two guys got into an argument after Hussle learned Holder was a snitch. McKinney stated that the rapper sought to “clean it up,” according to The Associated Press. The prosecutor also stated that Holder, Hussle, and two of his buddies had a “nice talk” previous to the shooting. Hussle was thought to be unprotected when he walked to his store.


At the trial, however, Holder’s attorney Jansen denied that his client’s actions were planned. He claimed it was motivated by “hot passion.”
