Slain rapper, Nipsey Hussle’s alleged killer Eric Holder has been indicted by a grand jury on murder charges.
The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office announced the arraignment this week, explaining Holder was indicted on May 9 on one count of murder, two counts each of attempted murder and assault with a firearm and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.
“The indictment, which was unsealed today, also includes allegations that Holder personally used a handgun and caused great bodily injury and death,” the news release read.
Holder had already been charged on April 8, but the indictment will allow the case to skip a preliminary hearing and head straight to trial. If convicted, Holder could face a maximum sentence of life in state prison.
Holder pleaded not guilty to the charges in court on Tuesday. He is scheduled to return for a pretrial hearing on June 18.
Nipsey Hussle was fatally gunned down outside his Los Angeles clothing store, Marathon Clothing Company on Sunday, March 31, 2019. He was 33.
Two other men were also shot, though they survived their injuries.
The news of Holder’s indictment comes a week after his attorney Chris Darden, who was famously part of the prosecution team in the O.J. Simpson trial, withdrew from the murder case after receiving threats against him and his family.
In a recent episode on her top trending Apple Radio – Queen Radio, Nicki Minaj revealed that she had a conversation with Kanye West and he broke the news to her that he’s now a born-again Christian.
Conversing with Chance The Rapper, who was also her special guest on the show, she said:
“I want to touch on, just briefly real quick, and I’m going to go…Because I felt the same exact way. Sometimes in the music business, we think that other artists don’t believe in God or are aren’t spiritual as we are, and stuff like that. So we automatically go to the normal, ‘Oh, what up?’
“Then when you find people, because I just was with Kanye, and he told me he’s a born-again Christian now. Like my first instinct was, ‘I’m so proud of you,’ because I could see there’s a peace that he has now that just surpasses everything.”
Well, with the raving Sunday Service done by Kanye, this substantively explains it.
Nicki also quickly briefed on her husband, Kenneth Petty’s faith, she added:
“To everybody listening, if you have a man that says he don’t believe in God … one time somebody told me this, that, ‘I don’t believe in God,’ and it scared the living hell out of me,” she said. “I ran like there was no tomorrow. So I just want to say, because a man needs a strong woman in his life, like whether that woman is praying or meditating or just supporting you or giving you those talks, people don’t understand how far that goes for men.”
Well, the newly revealed fact by Nicki Minaj is a jawdropping one. Although shocking, it explains the truth that no one is immune to change.
Today marks a special one, y’all.
“There are so many moments that I share with the world and there are moments that I want to keep for myself,” the 26-year-old “Press” rapper shared on Twitter. “Getting married was one of those moments!”
She continued to spill the tea, saying, “Our relationship was so new breaking up and making up and we had a lot of growing to do but we was so in love we didn’t want to lose each other.”
On Sept. 20, 2017, the pair secretly said “I do” in a very small and intimate ceremony at their house.
