New Report Reveals That Nipsey Hussle Was The Target Of A Secret LAPD Operation

As Nipsey Hussle’s legacy continues to live on, that includes the enemies he left behind.

The late Los Angeles rapper was murdered in his hometown back in March of 2019 at the age of 33. The gunman, however, was not the only one who had plans on taking Hussle’s life.

The Jasmine Brand reports that sources revealed that the slain rapper was allegedly the target of an LAPD operation called “Operation LASER” (Los Angeles Strategic Extraction and Restoration), created to track “chronic offenders” who potentially had ties to gun violence and gang activity.

Hussle’s brother, Blacc Sam, told sources that he was unaware of the LAPD’s secret operating until recently. Hussle and Sam ran a clothing store together, the famous Marathon Clothing store located at the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and Slauson Avenue. The “Victory Lap” artist would spend years pouring into and investing in his South Central Los Angeles community until his murder outside of The Marathon store.

As the success of Hussle’s business ventures grew, so did LAPD activity. They soon began investing resources into policing at Crenshaw and Slauson.

“It was a target point …It was like everybody walking out of the shop would get harassed or arrested,” Sam told The Guardian.

Hussle’s and Sam’s work was quickly praised in the community, being recognized by councilmen and local politicians. However, their tireless work would continually become overlooked by local police who believed the spot to be a hot spot for crime and gang activity.
