Dead rap star Nipsey shoots back up chart

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

DEAD rap­per Nipsey Hussle’s only of­fi­cial studio al­bum is back in the charts – at No.2 – a week af­ter he was shot and killed at the age of 33.

Vic­tory Lap only pre­vi­ously reached No.4 on its re­lease in March 2018.

But the al­bum racked up 66,000 al­bum sales last week.

That was bet­tered only by 17-year-old Bil­lie Eil­ish, whose de­but al­bum When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? went straight in at No.1.

Stars in­clud­ing Drake, Ri­hanna and Phar­rell Wil­liams paid trib­ute to Hussle af­ter he was gunned down out­side his cloth­ing store in Los An­ge­les.

A man named Eric Holder has pleaded not guilty to mur­der and at­tempted mur­der.
