It came after police arrested a man in connection with Hussle’s death.

Eric Holder, 29, was reportedly on the run for two days before his capture in Bellflower – a Los Angeles suburb around 20 miles (32km) southeast of where the rapper was shot outside his own clothing store.

Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Davidson Asghedom, had been a figure in the West Coast hip-hop scene for more than a decade.

He released a number of mixtapes before his debut album, Victory Lap, in February, which earned him a best rap album nomination at the Grammys.

Stars including Rihanna, Pharrell Williams and Drake are among those who have paid tribute, with Williams saying he was a “positive” force who “inspired millions”.

A post-mortem revealed that he was killed by gunshots to the head and torso, and his death has been certified as homicide.

A vigil was held outside his clothing store on Monday, but the scenes turned chaotic after a stampede was triggered by reports of gunshots, which later turned out to be false.
