The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office charged Holder with four counts, including one count of murder and two counts of attempted murder. He is being held on $5 million bail and scheduled to be back in court May 10, TMZ reports.

Holder, an aspiring rapper, was charged with one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.

During the hearing, Darden argued against allowing media outlets in the courtroom to record the proceeding but the judge allowed access.

Holder appeared in court behind bars in a holding cell and spoke only to acknowledge his rights.

Authorities say Holder got into an argument with Hussle, who was beloved by residents of his neighbourhood for his community work, and then left and returned with a handgun.

Darden is no stranger to high-profile, Los Angeles County murder trials.


Holder faces a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted.

J Roc, who wasn't with Hussle at the time of his shooting death, said in his Instagram post with pictures of him that he was "done with all this [expletive]" and leaving the security business. I've lost my best friend.

"You're such a classy gangster I love you brother", The Ghost wrote at a later point in time, leading Nipsey to reply with: "Love u too king me and my girl are real fans homie".

Hussle was gunned down outside his Marathon Clothing store Sunday.

He was set to meet with local authorities on Monday to discuss ways to end gang violence.
