Before Nipsey Hussle was gunned down, he was helping a friend.

The “Dedication” rapper was trying to help a friend who had just gotten out of prison, reports TMZ.

Sources connected to TMZ said that the reason he was at his apparel store, Marathon Clothing, was because he was trying to hook up his friend with some new clothes so that the could look good before meeting up with friends and family later on.

The friend had done a 20-year jail sentence. Sources said that Nipsey Hussle didn’t notify his team prior to heading to the store.

Hussle’s friend is also one of the other two people who was injured during the shooting. The third person was Hussle’s friend’s nephew.

Nipsey Hussle was fatally shot six times in the head and torso on Sunday (Mar. 31) outside of his store in South Los Angeles.

Yesterday (Apr. 2), Eric Holder, the suspect in question for shooting the slain rapper was arrested in California.
