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


February 23, 2023

The man convicted of killing rapper Nipsey Hussle was sentenced to 60 years to life in prison by a Los Angeles judge on Wednesday, according to the Associated Press and multiple news reports.

Superior Court Judge H. Clay Jacke II sentenced Eric R. Holder Jr., 33, who was found guilty of first-degree murder in the shooting of Hussle (real name: Airmiess Joseph Asghedom) outside the Marathon, the South Central Los Angeles clothing store that the rapper had founded.

In July, jurors also convicted Holder of two counts of attempted voluntary manslaughter and two counts of assault with a firearm, stemming from gunfire that hit two other men at the scene; those victims both survived.
