Nipsey Hussle Picks Tour Over Court Gets Name on Arrest Warrant

2/17/2014 12:20 AM PST
Nipsey Hussle is officially a wanted man -- and it's all because the rapper skipped court for his career ... which could now be derailed by an arrest warrant. 

Here's the deal ... Nipsey was charged with driving on a suspended license back in 2012, and a pretrial hearing was scheduled for Thursday afternoon ... but Hussle didn't show up.

Nip says he hired an attorney to rep him while he finished out the last leg of his tour ... but the lawyer wasn't in court either -- and it pissed off the judge enough to issue a warrant for his arrest.

Lesson: Don't take days off.
