Nipsey Hussle’s Killer Sentenced to 60 Years to Life in Prison - WhatsOnRap

Eric Holder was found guilty of first-degree murder last year in the 2019 killing of Hussle

A Los Angeles jury convicted Nipsey Hussle's murderer, Eric Holder, to 60 years to life in prison.

Holder was found guilty to 60 years in prison by a Superior Court judge named H. Clay Jacke II on Wednesday, according to the Associated Press (February 22). One of Nipsey's pals testified at the hearing, while Hussle's father delivered a touching letter to the courtroom.

“Nipsey was my friend, he was like a son, he was like a dad,” Nip’s close friend Herman “Cowboy” Douglas told the judge. “Our community right now, we lost everything, everything we worked for. One man’s mistake, one man’s action, messed up a whole community. “I don’t care what you give this guy. It ain’t about the time. I just want to know why. The world wants to know why. Why someone would do that?”

Holder's sentence had been postponed for a variety of reasons after he was found guilty of first-degree murder in July's trial in connection with the shooting death of Nipsey Hussle outside his Marathon Clothing store on March 31, 2019.

Holder, allegedly became enraged when Nipsey accused him of being a snitch. “Nipsey was like, ‘Man, you know, they got some paperwork on you, you know. I haven’t read it, you know. Like you my bro, you know. Like maybe you need to take care of that, you know,’” a witness said to the grand jury in 2019.

Holder went back to the spot with a pair of firearms and fired at least ten shots into the Crenshaw rapper, k*lling him.

Shermi Villanueva, a different witness, described what he saw in Nipsey's dying minutes after Holder pulled the trigger.
