Conspiracy theories concerning the death of beloved musician Nipsey Hussle are rampant. Eric Holder was arrested on allegations that he was the trigger man behind the murder of Hussle. He has retained the services of former prosecutor Chris Darden, who failed to get OJ Simpson convicted, and now a bombshell defense is allegedly being claimed. According to unconfirmed reports, Holder is ready to claim that he was paid to kill Nipsey Hussle.

This claim has been published by media outlets, Lipstick Alley, Hip-hop Wired, Daily Motion and others, based on unconfirmed sources from an Instagram post. According to these sources, Holder has stated that he was propositioned by someone in the Los Angeles Police Department to assassinate Nipsey Hussle. This alleged proposition was that Holder would receive $75,000 and would not be charged.

There is no official confirmation from Holder’s legal team over such an accusation. However, the claim has played into the psyche of many on social media who believe the government continues to silence Black leaders in America. Also, no one knows how Eric Holder’s lawyer, Chris Darden, is being paid. Social media is already responding to the claims, that if proven true, will have a devastating effect on the not only the Crenshaw community, but also the nation.
