BBC Three Release Brand-New Documentary ‘The Mysterious Murder Of Nipsey Hussle’

26 March 2020

To mark the one-year anniversary of the late, great Nipsey Hussle’s death, the BBC have released a brand-new documentary on the U.S rapper.

On March 31st last year, Nipsey was fatally shot outside his clothing store in Los Angeles and the new documentary is based on the Grammy award-winning rapper’s tragic passing.

Titled The Mysterious Murder Of Nipsey Hussle, the documentary is presented by Ben Zand who speaks to the LAPD and key figures in Nipsey’s Crenshaw community to establish facts around the rapper’s murder. Upon his journey, Zand discovers the complex nature of the killing which leads him to question whether or not the suspected gunman, Eric Holder, acted alone.

The description of the documentary on the BBC website reads:  “On the 31st of March 2019, the rapper and entrepreneur was shot dead. Loved by his community, Nipsey was more than a rapper – he was an icon.

“But that’s what made his death so confusing, the man everyone loved and looked up to was shot at least ten times on the very property he owned.”

The description adds: “After his death, rumours began to swirl. Fellow gang member Eric Holder was detained to stand trial for the murder, but many suspected that he didn’t act alone.”

“Although Holder was allegedly the person to pull the trigger, some Crenshaw locals believe he may not have been the person to authorize Nipsey’s killing.”

The documentary is available to view on BBC iPlayer from today (March 26) right here.
