Defense Attorney Says `Snitch’ Insult Sparked Murder of Rapper Nipsey Hussle

A defense attorney suggested Thursday that an insult hurled by Nipsey Hussle at a fellow gang member sparked the rapper’s murder outside his South Los Angeles clothing store.

Aaron Jansen, who is representing accused killer Eric Ronald Holder Jr., indicated that Hussle called his client a snitch just prior to the April 2, 2019, shooting.

A Los Angeles Police Department gang specialist testified that the snitch label is one of the most serious insults imaginable in the world of street gangs. The officer told jurors that both Hussle and Holder were members of the same South Los Angeles street gang — and that the act or perhaps just the perception of helping police in an investigation would be met with a range of consequences.
