Eric Holder faces life behind bars for the murder of Nipsey Hussle. He is being held on $5 million bail and scheduled to be back in court May 10, TMZ reports.

It was Sunday afternoon - hours before hundreds of mourners would descend on South Los Angeles to remember a man known as much for his boastful music as for his humble contributions to his community.

Nipsey Hussle's brother, Samiel Asghedom, recently spoke about trying to save the late rapper's life and how he wishes someone would have been able to return fire on the shooter. During his appearance before a jam-packed courtroom secured by armed guards Thursday, Holder was charged with one count of murder and two more counts of attempted murder.

Darden tried unsuccessfully to prevent the media from filming his client during his arraignment on Thursday, arguing that there was an "issue of identity".

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.

Holder was arrested on Wednesday in Bellflower by L.A. County sheriff's deputies and turned over to the LAPD.

Two other people were injured.

Hussle's death prompted grief and outrage among residents in the Crenshaw neighbourhood, where the rapper grew up, and among his fans, who saw him as a symbol of hope and self-improvement. Police described a dispute between Holder and Hussle as being of a "personal nature".
