Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom, was known as a savvy businessman who owned all the masters to his recordings, as well as his Marathon Clothing retail store. Hussle, 33, was gunned down March 31 outside his South Los Angeles clothing store. Eric Holder, a 29-year-old acquaintance, has been charged in the killing, with police saying that the shooting stemmed from some kind of personal dispute. [dfm_iframe src=”https://apps.mercurynews.com/newsletters-signup/?campaign=coffeebreak” width=”100%” height=”220px” allowfullscreen=”yes” scrolling=”yes” /] Hussle was known to be devoted both to his community and to his family. His daughter, Emani, 7, was from his relationship with ex-girlfriend Tanisha Asghedom, Heavy.com reported. Emani walked the red carpet with her father at the 2019 Grammy Awards.

Following Hussle’s death, multiple crowdfunding pages popped up. One of those pages was set up by retired NFL star Reggie Bush, who had a goal of raising $100,000 for the children, TMZ reported. Bush contributed $10,000 to the site, but he also was criticized online for trying to capitalize on the tragedy to gain “clout” for himself, The Source reported. False reports also circulated that Jay-Z had set up a trust fund for Hussle’s children, The Source added. Hussle’s family wants people to know they are grateful for the outpouring of love and support, but they insist that his children won’t have to worry about money, TMZ added.

About 21,000 people attended and saw the children join London and Hussle’s sister, Samantha Smith, on stage. They also were joined by Kameron Carter, London’s son with Lil Wayne. After Carter gave a brief speech and urged the crowd to yell out “respect!” for Hussle, Kross cooed into the microphone. #NipseyHussle’s kids ❤️💔 pic.twitter.com/PEkVZIT9wh — BallerAlert (@balleralert) April 11, 2019
