The not guilty plea means that Eric Holder will stand trial and is facing the maximum sentence of life in prison. The late rapper was beloved in his home city of Los Angeles, and was renowned for his efforts to lift up his poverty-stricken community.

Los Angeles County prosecutors filed the charges against 29-year-old Eric Holder, who is set to appear in court Thursday afternoon.

Holder was taken into custody Tuesday after a two-day manhunt following the shooting, in which two other men were wounded.

Simpson, Chris Darden is back in the legal limelight in another controversial case- this time as a defense lawyer for the man charged in the murder of rapper and community advocate Nipsey Hussle.

Holder, 29, also faces a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm. The two men reportedly had a personal dispute just moments before the shooting. Holder was arrested on Wednesday over the murder of the rapper outside his LA clothing store three days earlier.

Hussle had two children - a two-year-old son named Kross with his longtime girlfriend, model Lauren London, and a daughter, called Emani, from a previous relationship.

"He represents a new generation of entertainer turned activist turned entrepreneur", she said, noting his activism on police brutality and gun violence.

Hussle had success in hip-hop's inner circles for 10 years through his coveted mixtapes, then last year broke big with his major-label debut album, "Victory Lap", which was nominated for a Grammy.

Minutes after Nipsey Hussle was shot multiple times on Sunday afternoon, his brother rushed to the scene and tried to save his life.
