Holder personally used a handgun and caused great bodily injury and death. He pleaded not guilty and is due back in court next month. Authorities said Holder killed Hussle and wounded two other people at the rapper’s Slauson Avenue clothing store.
Holder, an aspiring rapper who went by the moniker Fly Mac, has sung of body bags and bloody homicides. L.A. Police Chief Michel Moore told reporters in March that Holder got into a verbal altercation with Hussle: “Mr. Holder walked up on multiple occasions and engaged in conversations.”
Holder was being held on $6.5 million bail. If convicted, he faces a maximum of life in state prison.
