(AllHipHop News) The man accused of murdering rapper Nipsey Hussle has officially been charged with murder.
Eric Holder was taken into custody by Los Angeles County Sheriff's officials in Bellflower, California on Tuesday (April 2), hours after Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) chief Michel Moore urged the 29-year-old to turn himself in during a press conference.
He has since been transferred to an LAPD jail, where his bail has been set at just over $7 million for murder, and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.
Eric Holder is being held separately from other inmates over concerns for his safety, as authorities are aware "lots of people don't like him right now".
He stands accused of gunning down Hussle, 33, outside his Marathon Clothing store in Crenshaw, Los Angeles on Sunday (March 31).
The hip-hop star and activist, real name Ermias Davidson Asghedom, was pronounced dead after being admitted to a local hospital.
Investigators believe Holder had a personal dispute with Hussle, and claim his death had nothing to do with gang violence.
