Nipsey Hussle’s Murder Explored In First Episode Of New ‘Behind The Crime’ Series

The newly launched “Behind the Crime” series, which premiered last Wednesday (September 20) on Fox‘s Tubi network, explored the murder of rapper Nipsey Hussle in its first episode.

The show, which is a collaboration between Tubi and Dan Abrams‘ Law & Crime, “dives deep into the inner workings of the justice system with gripping cases that give viewers unfiltered access with real case footage.”

The first episode follows the killing of Hussle as well as the trial of Eric Holder Jr., who was found guilty of first-degree murder in the March 2019 killing in July 2022.

The episode, “Behind the Crime: The Nipsey Hussle Murder,” tells what happened following an altercation outside of Hussle’s The Marathon clothing store in South Central Los Angles on the fateful day. It uses accounts from witnesses as well as actual street camera footage from the shooting, its aftermath and the funeral of the beloved MC.

Holder Jr., 33, was sentenced to 60 years to life in prison by an L.A. judge in February, eight months after his conviction in the case.

According to prosecutors, Holder, who was allegedly angry over accusations that he was a “snitch,” came back after an earlier altercation outside of the Marathon with two handguns, and shot Hussle more than 10 times.
