Nipsey Hussle’s Victory Lap album release party came to an end by gunfire.
The Crenshaw rapper hosted an album release party for his debut LP Victory Lap at the World On Wheels in LA on Saturday Night. Nipsey Hussle reportedly bought the place last year so naturally, that’s where he would host his grand album release party. Sources say someone started firing shots in the parking lot just before midnight and one person was struck by a bullet and taken to the Cedar-Sinai Medical Center where he is listed in stable condition.
Cops were quick on the scene but the shooter got away by the time they arrived, TMZ reported. The victim also refused to cooperate with officers leaving them without a clue about what went down. Partygoers thought that it was another mass shooting incident underway and some of them sound off on Twitter saying that everyone panicked. World On Wheels is an iconic roller rink located in Venice, Los Angeles. Nipsey Hussle helped the place get back up last year when he invested his personal money into it.
Nipsey Hussle’s debut album Victory Lap was released on Friday amidst a lot of fan fair. The reactions so far from hip hop fans have been positive. The album features 16 tracks with guest appearances Marsha Ambrosius, Diddy, Kendrick Lamar, YG, and CeeLo Green.
After leading Team Clippers to victory at the the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game on Friday, Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler surprised fans with an impromptu karaoke performance of the band’s 2007 track “Intervention” at a bar in Los Angeles. Few things are as cringe-inducing as performing your own song at karaoke, and Butler seems noticeably uneasy, wandering around the bar’s patio area in an attempt to break the awkwardness. Watch a clip of the performance below via Arcade Fire Tube.
So, uh, Win Butler just casually dropped by some karaoke spot in Little Tokyo (Los Angeles) last night. I’m guessing he maybe noticed they had “Intervention” on their repertoire and couldn’t resist, or something.

The Kendrick Lamar-curated Black Panther soundtrack has debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, according to Billboard. The album, which features music from SZA, The Weeknd, Travis Scott, and more alongside Kendrick, has earned 154,000 equivalent album units in the week between February 9-15, according to Nielsen Music. Of that 154,000 units, 52,000 represent traditional album sales. The release marks the biggest first week for a soundtrack since Suicide Squad: The Album, which earned 182,000 equivalent album units in its first week. Black Panther opened Thursday night, becoming the top-grossing film in history by a black director (Ryan Coogler) with a largely black cast. The film is estimated to have made over $387 million by Monday.
Travis Scott, Migos, and Lil Yachty are making sure their young fans get to see Black Panther.
La Flame, who appears on “Big Shots” off the movie’s soundtrack, rented out two theaters in Stafford, Texas to screen the Marvel blockbuster, which stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, and Danai Gurira.
“I LOVED BLACK PANTHER SO MUCH RENTED TWO MOVIE THEATHRES FOR THE KIDS TO WATCH,” he wrote on Instagram.
Lil Yachty and Offset joined the movement by attending a screening that was organized by “This Is Us” writer Jas Waters at Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre for 500 foster and at-risk youth, according to TMZ. “We just wanted to watch this movie with y’all,” said Lil Boat. “We wanted y’all to see it and have a good time.”
“This Is Us” star Lonnie Chavis, who plays young Randall, was also on hand for the movie screening. Waters took to social media and added a note of gratitude for Migos, who pitched in as well. “Thank you Offset & Lil Yachty for coming to welcome the kids! Thank you MIGOS for buying out the rest of the theater. And making sure the kids had an UNFORGETTABLE #BlackPanther experience. #GODreamers.”
Top Dawg Entertainment CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith also treated 1,000 kids in his hometown of Watts to a special screening of the Ryan Coogler-directed film, which topped the weekend box office with $192 million, setting a record for the fifth largest three-day domestic opening in history.
Gunshots brought an end to Nipsey Hussle’s Victory Lap album release party in Los Angeles on Saturday (Feb. 17).
According to reports, one person was hit in the thigh during the shooting, which took place at approximately 11:30 p.m. in the parking lot of World on Wheels, a roller rink that Hussle helped refurbish last year, according to TMZ.
Civilians were reportedly worried about a possible mass shooting, just days away from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School tragedy, and just months after the massacre that took place during a Las Vegas music festival.
It is unclear what led to the incident. The shooter got away and the person who was shot reportedly refused to cooperate with authorities. Nipsey was not seen after the shooting and it is unknown weather he was on the scene at the time of the incident.
This was one of several Nipsey events in honor of his album’s release, which coincided with NBA All-Star Weekend in L.A. On Thursday (Feb. 15), he debuted the album during a sold-out concert at the Hollywood Palladium, where he was joined by Diddy, Dom Kennedy, and Mozzy, among others.
He went on to hold a scavenger hunt with The Hundreds on Friday (Feb. 16), followed by a star-studded album celebration in West Hollywood, which was attended by Kevin Hart, James Harden, Allen Iverson, Irv Gotti, and more.
