West Coast spitter Nipsey Hussle and his former manager Eugene ‘Big U’ Henley clashed this past Friday in Los Angeles. The pair, who released several street offerings over the past few years, bumped into each other at the intersection of Crenshaw and Slauson, resulting in gunfire and a shootout with the police.

According to AllHipHop, the two began arguing before it quickly escalated to a physical brawl. Nipsey’s brother, Samiel Asghedom, reportedly fired shots in the air after the altercation heated up, prompting police to arrive and shoot at him, though he remained unscathed. Following the melee, the cops took in the three men for their actions. Conflicting eyewitness reports claim otherwise, though, with anonymous sources stating that though a conflict occurred, the three had nothing to do with it.

The rapper later took to his Twitter page to make a statement about the matter. “I ain’t dead … I ain’t in jail … and I ain’t on tha run. TMC,” he wrote.

Nipsey Hussle most recently left his label Epic Records following the two-year delay of his debut studio album ‘South Central State of Mind.’ He ended up signing with an indie imprint dubbed All Money In Records, explaining that he’s always maintained an independent spirit. There is no current release date set for the Los Angeles native.
