Eric Holder Jr. was given a maximum of 25 years in prison for the shooting death of Nipsey Hussle, with an additional 25 years for firearm reinforcement. Two other men were injured in the event, and he was found guilty of attempted intentional murder on both counts and given an extra 10-year term.

Holder’s dad sent an apology letter to the judge.

“I know there are not enough words or apologies that will fill the void, the loss, the pain, the deep sorrow the family of Ermias Asghedom (Nipsey Hussle) is experiencing. You cannot imagine the agony, the grief, the utter disbelief and devastation I feel knowing my son, Eric Jr., took another person’s life,” said the letter, which was read aloud for the record.

Eric Holder Jr.’s father also described his son’s upbringing, discussed his mental condition, and said that his son’s mother had passed away nearly 2 months before to Hussle’s murder.

In July of 2022, Holder was found culpable of first-degree killing for his role in the demise of the late musician and rapper.

Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Joseph Asghedom, was shot and killed on March 31, 2019, in South Los Angeles. He aged 33.

Hussle, who started the record label All Money In, is a father of two and a wealthy businessman.

Hussle worked with scores of musicians throughout his career. Meek Mill, Drake, Ty Dolla Sign, Kendrick Lamar, YG, and Young Thug are just a few of the names that come to mind.
