Boosie Badazz is unhappy with the sentence Eric Holder received for killing Nipsey Hussle – and has offered an alternative sentence which he says may be more appropriate.
Holder – who was convicted of first-degree murder for Nipsey’s death in 2019 – was sentenced to 60 years to life on Wednesday (February 22).
As news of the sentence spread, Boosie took to Twitter to share his thoughts.
“JUST 60 for killing Nip n he gon get WORD N 20 lol,” he tweeted. “I hope some crips stab him to death in jail! MAKE NIP SMILE!”

Holder’s sentencing had been delayed for a myriad of reasons after his July 2022 grand jury conviction, in which he was charged with the March 31, 2019 shooting death of Nipsey Hussle outside his Marathon clothing store.
Holder, 33, was reportedly angered by Nipsey accusing him of being a snitch.
“Nipsey was like, ‘Man, you know, they got papers on you, you know. I haven’t read it, you know. Like you bro, you know. Like maybe you need to deal with it. , you know,” a witness told the grand jury in 2019.
Holder returned to the scene with a pair of guns and unloaded at least 10 rounds on rapper Crenshaw.
A separate witness named Shermi Villanueva recounted what he saw in Nipsey Hussle’s final moments after Holder pulled the trigger.
During the two-week trial, Holder suffered a brutal beating behind bars at the hands of other inmates on June 28. He reportedly needed three staples to the head and was too injured to appear in court.
Prior to his sentencing, Holder’s legal team attempted to have his first-degree murder conviction reduced. Defense attorney Aaron Jensen argued jurors returned an “inconsistent” verdict when they convicted Holder of premeditated murder following the death of Nipsey Hussle, while accepting his “heat of delusion” defense. passion” regarding the other two victims, Kerry Lathan and Shermi Villanueva.
Ultimately, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge H. Clay Jacke denied the defense’s request to reduce the charge to second-degree murder or manslaughter.
Holder was not eligible for the death penalty, but will likely spend the rest of his life in prison.
