'Victory Lap' is sitting pretty...

Nipsey Hussle’s debut album ‘Victory Lap’ has reached the number one spot on the US iTunes album chart, only days after his tragic death.

The US rapper was shot dead outside his own clothing store in Los Angeles on Sunday (March 31). He was taken to hospital alongside two other men, who currently remain in a stable condition.

While a sea of tributes flooded in from the likes of Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Beyonce, his 2018 debut has now reached the top spot too.

At the time of writing, ‘Victory Lap’ sits atop the iTunes charts after scoring huge download numbers in the days immediately after his death.

The record was initially released in February 2018, after he previously dropped 10 mixtapes including ‘The Marathon’ and ‘Crenshaw’.

On Tuesday, police confirmed that suspect Eric Holder has been arrested in connection with Nipsey’s death.  The 29-year-old is said to have been found in Lakewood, CA.

It also emerged after his death that Nipsey was due to meet with police on Monday to discuss ways to prevent gang violence in Los Angeles.

Yesterday, his girlfriend Lauren London broke her silence for the first time to pay tribute to the late star.

“I am completely lost , I’ve lost my best friend,” the model wrote on Instagram.

“My sanctuary, my protector, my soul… I’m lost without you, we are lost without you babe. I have no words.”

Lauren and Nipsey had been dating for six years and have a child together – two-year-old Kross Asghedom.

On Monday evening, Drake also hailed the star during his performance at London’s O2 Arena.
