Reports state he needed extra security while filming a music video.

As the days move forward following Nipsey Hussle’s murder, reports will inevitably start pouring in about the late rapper and what led to his untimely death. TMZ is sharing information from their sources, and the publication reports that the rapper knew that there was someone out to get him just days before he died.

Three days prior to Nipsey’s murder, he was on set in Inglewood with John Legend and DJ Khaled shooting a music video for their collaboration “Higher.” The track is reportedly a feature on Khaled’s forthcoming album, Father of Asahd, that’s expected to drop this MayTMZ states the Nipsey’s team was alerted of possible danger while filming in Los Angeles, and the production crew “wanted the entire structure shut down so that only folks working the shoot would have access.”

They also report that 10 police officers were on the scene “because of concerns over Nipsey’s safety.” However, there were no problems on set and both Legend and Khaled shared their condolences on social media without mentioning that there were any issues related to the rapper’s safety in his own city.

“RIP Nipsey,” Legend tweeted. “I just spent Thursday with him filming a video for a beautiful new song we created with Khaled. We filmed in Inglewood, close to where he grew up. He was so gifted, so proud of his home, so invested in his community. Utterly stunned that he’s gone so soon.”

Music video director Eif Rivera wrote about meeting Nipsey while recently filming the music video. “I had the honour to meet Nipsey on this video shoot with Dj Khaled just a couple days ago,” Rivera wrote on Instagram. “He was a good soul. We were excited about this shoot. Just last night I met with Ludacris and told him how great it was working with Nip. I leave Luda and 5 mins later I run into Nip. We had a great conversation about Life. Damn. I pray for his family. This gotta stop.”

Meanwhile, TMZ also reports that the Los Angeles Police Department hopes to keep the peace in the community. They reportedly fear that Nipsey’s death will lead to more deaths and have concerns over violent community fallout.
