The entertainment community is in mourning following news of Nipsey Hussle's death.

The 33-year-old rapper was shot six times outside his clothing store, the Marathon Clothing Company, in Los Angeles Sunday (March 31). He is survived by his two children and his girlfriend, Lauren London, with whom he had a child with in 2016.

Immediately following news of the California native's sudden passing, stars from across industries expressed their grief on social media. Aside from hip-hop, Nipsey, who was born and raised in Crenshaw, was best known for his community outreach. In addition to working to prevent gang violence, he recently helped launch Vector 90 โ€” a Crenshaw district based STEM learning center and workspace dedicated to developing science and technology education in the area, TMZ reports.
