Nipsey Hussle Net Worth: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Nipsey Hussle, the Los Angeles-based rapper who was shot to death on March 31, 2019, was a millionaire at the time of his death.

Real name Ermias Asghedomon, and born in 1985, Nipsey Hussle's career began taking off a decade before his death with the release of his first single, Hussle in the House. His mixtapes soon found a big following as did his efforts to improve the community later in his career.

Nipsey Hussle Net Worth: $8 Million

At the time of his death, Nipsey Hussle was worth about $8 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. He built his net worth through his music career but also the store where he sold merchandise and where, tragically, he was gunned down. The suspect is not yet clear.

Here's what you need to know:

1. Nipsey Hussle Founded His Own Record Label & Released a Major Studio Album

Nipsey Hussle attends the Warner Music Pre-Grammy Party at the NoMad Hotel on February 7, 2019 in Los Angeles, California.

In the beginning, Nipsey Hussle started releasing mixtapes. The first was called Slauson Boy Vol. 1. He signed with Cinematic Music Group and Epic Records. According to Celebrity Net Worth, he released two mixtapes called Bullets Ain't Got No Name, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2. His debut single came out in 2009, and he soon released a mixtape called Bullets Ain't Got No Name.

After Epic Records released him in 2010, he started his own record label called All Money, Celebrity Net Worth reported. His major studio album came out the year of his death and was called Victory Lap.

Initially, he sold mixtapes for $100, telling GQ, “The marketing for the mixtape was that we only made a thousand units and sold them for a hundred dollars apiece. It was a scarcity model. Jay-Z bought a few copies, et cetera.”

The rapper has described to Forbes how important it was to him to be self made. "Being self-made means never making an excuse as to why you can’t take steps toward whatever your goal is," he said. "There’s always something you can do. You may not always have the necessary tools and resources, but you always have something."

2. Nipsey Hussle Was Associated With a Clothing Store, Which Was Where He Was Shot

All of Nipsey Hussle's fortune did not derive from his music. He had also moved into the world of merchandise, and he was associated with a store. Tragically, that is where he was shot and killed.

According to NBC News, the rapper was shot in the parking lot of his store, which was called Marathon Clothing. It was located on West Slauson Avenue in South Los Angeles.

You can find the website for Marathon Clothing here. He also opened a "professional co-working space called Vector90 in Crenshaw," where he grew up. The goal was to bring economic success to an overlooked area of the community.

GQ described all of his ventures as "a crypto-currency business, a co-working space, a STEM program for inner-city kids, a fish shop, a barbershop, and a clothing store—The Marathon—located on Slauson that's always full of locals and visiting fans."

3. Hussle Was Nominated for a Grammy Award

According to NBC News, Nipsey Hussle's music was finally on the radar of major awards ceremonies.

His debut studio album Victory Lap was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album in the year he died, NBC reported. Top artists appeared on Victory Lap, including Kendrick Lamar, Diddy, and The-Dream, Pitchfork reports.

He once expressed humility to Forbes though, saying, "There are a couple important principles that I lead by. First, you have to be willing to do every job. I think that’s really important, even if you’re considered the boss or the leader. I take the trash out, I sweep the floor, and I’m always willing to."

4. Nipsey Hussle Collaborated With Some Top Names

One of those collaborates was Drake in 2009 on Killer. Hussle also appeared on Snoop Dogg’s Malice in Wonderland album, according to Pitchfork, which reports that he also worked with artists such as YG, Rick Ross, and 9th Wonder.

Nick Cannon to Finish Nipsey Hussle’s Dr. Sebi Documentary

Actor and comedian Nick Cannon

Rapper and actor Nick Cannon announced on Instagram that he will honor the late Nipsey Hussle by completing his controversial documentary on Dr. Sebi. On April 1, the 38-year-old Drumline star posted a photo of himself with Hussle, who was shot and killed outside his Los Angeles shop, Marathon Clothing, the day prior, saying that he will “pick up the baton” and “your voice will never be silenced.”

Cannon captioned the photo: “And the Lord said, “Job well done my son..” @nipseyhussle King this is how I want to remember you! Laughing! Smiling! I ain’t slept yet, thinking about our conversations!

I know you still rocking with us and your voice will never be silenced, because to be absent from the body is to be present with the Most High! So now that you are at Peace don’t Rest… Keep leading… Keep Shining King! Cosmic Love My Brotha!”

People were elated on Twitter to see Cannon was picking up where Hussle left off, but also extremely worried. Fans tweeted “Lord keep Nick Cannon safe,” and the many people still on the fence as to whether or not they believe there’s a connection between the doc and Hussle’s death, they also expressed caution.

The documentay was about Dr sebi a man the FBI and the Pharmaceutical gangsters wanted dead for practicing medicine and have cured many diseases, he have treated celebrities like Michael Jackson and Left Eye Lopez from the group TLC, the government of Honduras and the FBI killed him, he died in their custody after being arrested several times on bogus charges.

Nipsey was due to released the documentary which the government and the pharma industry was not happy about, this is a billion dollars industry, documentary sometimes reveals too much truth and it must be stop, im pretty sure he was warned to leave it alone, this is America money and greed will take your life
Comment by Robert on April 1, 2019 at 5:18pm
didn't know of him, but what's this documentary about?
Comment by mr1stroke on April 1, 2019 at 2:08pm
If thats the case the documentary can still be released, he was not the only one involve and the family can now have all the rights
Comment by Lu on April 1, 2019 at 10:43am
He was killed because of the 'Dr. Sebi' documentary he was to release. The pharmaceutical kingpins aka original gangstas had him assassinated. That's the American way. KILL THEM BEFORE THEY EXPOSE TRUTH TO THE MASSES. PEACE TO MY BRETHREN AND ALL OF THE OTHER FALLEN SOLDIERS THAT THEY HAD TO KILL...MALCOLM X, MLK JR, MICHAEL J, BOB MARLEY, ETC. ETC. ETC.
