Nipsey Hussle

breaking news

0830-nispey-hussle-tmz-01LAPD got themselves a 2-for-1 deal Friday night ... when they went to arrest someone for allegedly violating their probation ... and ended up arresting rapper Nipsey Hussle too!

Hussle was picked up in downtown Los Angeles and booked for obstructing a police officer. According to police, they were raiding a clothing store looking for a possible probation violator and Hussle (real name Emmias Ashghedom) happened to be there as well. 

It's unclear what Hussle did to get himself arrested, but his rep says Nipsey feels the arrest was "unjust and without cause." He was released Saturday morning after posting $13,000 bail.

Hussle's rep said the incident will not effect him performing at the Made In America festival in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Realistically. ..cops probably came in acting like a55holes looking for someone who violated probation in typical ignorant arrogant cop fashion tossing things and people around and just being d0uchers. And nip probably had a lil too much to drink and started talking smack and ended up getting arrested. ..any one familiar with cops or police culture knows that disorderly conduct and obstruction are the most bs charges around... basically means you p1ssed off the wrong cop lol. He'll be fine and tmz racist commenters will be fine too

Nipsey is actually a good dude.. donates alot and does alot for his community despite his appearance he does put alot back into his neighborhood... he probably should just keep quiet when a55hole cops bust into your clothibg store tho

Who are all these freakin rappers that TMZ fills their "Most wanted" page with? Has anybody besides their own hoodrats heard of them? What a waste and a joke.
