Eric Ronald Holder, Jr. was sentenced to 60 years to life in prison for the murder of Nipsey Hussle on Wednesday, according to Los Angeles Times reporter James A. Queally. The rapper was murdered on March 31, 2019.



Eric Holder Jr. was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Nipsey Hussle. He was sentenced to 25 years to life in jail for murder, an additional 25 years to life for a sentencing enhancement due to the use of a firearm, and 10 years for shooting two other persons that day," Queally tweeted. 


Holder was sentenced after a 12-member jury found him guilty of first-degree murder in July 2022 for the shooting death of the late musician. Holder was also found not guilty of attempted voluntary manslaughter after injuring two witnesses during the incident.



Prosecutors claim Holder shot Hussle at least ten times when they met in front of the Victory Lap creator's The Marathon Clothing store. Holder departed after a brief talk and returned 10 minutes later with a weapon, killing Hussle. In addition, he injured two onlookers at the site.



Holder was arrested two days later in the Los Angeles suburb of Bellflower, California, on one count of murder, two charges of attempted murder, and one count of felon in possession of a firearm. According to eyewitnesses, the incident was sparked by Holder asking Nipsey if the rapper had told anyone that Holder snitched.



During Holder's murder trial on July 6, his attorney, Aaron Jansen, admitted that Holder killed Hussle but claimed that the murder charges should be reduced to involuntary manslaughter because the incident occurred in a fit of rage and was not premeditated.



Following Holder’s jury conviction, Jansen released a statement to XXL, explaining his client’s next legal options. "While Mr. Holder, Jr. was found guilty of first degree murder of Nipsey Hustle, he was acquitted of the attempted murders of Mr. Lathan and Mr. Villanueva (the two bystanders in the shooting incident)," he stated. "Sentencing is set for September 15, 2022 after which we will file an appeal."


Last December, a judge denied Holder's request to have his charges reduced to manslaughter.
