Many artists mourned the death of Grammy-nominated rapper Nipsey Hussle following a shooting incident just outside of his Los Angeles store.

Drake quickly took to Instagram to express his pain upon hearing the passing of Hussle (born Ermias Davidson Asghedom). He revealed in his emotional post that he and the late rapper were planning to collaborate this summer.

“You were having the best run and I was so happy watching from distance fam nobody ever talks down on your name you were a real one to your people and to the rest of us. I’m only doing this here cause I want the world to know I saw you as a man of respect and a don. Rest easy my g,” the “Hotline Bling” hitmaker added.

Rihanna also expressed her shock on Twitter after learning about Hussle’s death. The “Diamonds” singer even included her prayer for the late artist in her tweet.

“This doesn’t make any sense! My spirit is shaken by this! Dear God may His spirit Rest In Peace and May You grant divine comfort to all his loved ones!” Rihanna wrote.

Other celebs who echoed their sadness and condolences on social media include Michael B. Jordan, Kevin Hart, Chance the Rapper, Meek Mill, John Legend and LeBron James.

Law enforcement sources told NBC News that Hussle was killed after a shooting incident on Sunday afternoon. Two other men were said to be badly injured and in serious condition while the suspect remained at large.

Mike Lopez of the Los Angeles Police Department said that the shooting happened at around 3:20 p.m. in the 3400 block of Slauson Avenue. The suspect reportedly fled the crime scene in a car, according to TMZ.

Prior the incident, Hussle actually took to Twitter to reveal that “having strong enemies is a blessing.”

Hussle’s debut studio album “Victory Lap” peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and it was even nominated for Best Rap Album at this year’s Grammy Awards.
