    • Jackie Barker his family was getting threatened during the oj case this ainโ€™t no new concept lol

    • Difference between OJ threats verses Nipsey Hussell threats would be he know them CRIPS not just talking! They about action!

  1. But you quit ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿฝ

    • Naw,m. I donโ€™t agree with him taking the case but he can be battle tested. However, when your family is involved you back off for their safety. Their pride is not worth their blood.

    • No man should fear for his life but, his families life is a whole other ballgame. I dont know why he took the case but I surely understand why he dropped it

    • +Lamar Taylor He’s smart I would be running to .what dumbass is going to take Eric Holders case unless they got a mafia or Posse or gang they damn self to retaliate against Nipsey hussle’s people s*** I wouldn’t take the case either I’ll be running to…..๐Ÿ˜ก

    • +Tyrone Williams I am scared for him and his family he ain’t no damn gang member.. that’s some ghetto s*** and people why would La. kill a Man ?a black man trying to help his community that’s f***** up and a slap in the face.๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก

  2. THAT’S WHAT HE GETS FOR BEING A SELLOUT WHEN HE KNOWS OLD BOY IS GUILTY AS HELL, SO LET THAT NIGGAH BURN & RECEIVE WHATEVER THA MAN WANTS TO GIVE HIM=HE’S EXPENDABLE, PERIOD!!โœŠ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ช

  3. I knew they were gonna come for him. That’s what he gets for clout chasing.

    • +Pop Kulture Tarot your right some lawyers do that but the difference between those lawyers and him is that they see the case through, he isn’t. This isn’t about clout. This is about his family and what is best for his family.

    • +Pop Kulture Tarot And the truth of the fact is, all of this has to do with the fact that everyone wants the man dead and is willing to harm anyone that trys to help him. As a lawyer it is his job to defend the man. If the guy is guilty the let the justice system do it’s job.

    • +Pop Kulture Tarot dardan got his clout back in ’95 in a higher profile and hellava lot more important case than this one!

  4. I guess The Crips must’ve told Chris that there going to get him too๐Ÿ˜„.
    I don’t think Chris Darden Mercedes is Bulletproof ๐Ÿ˜‚

    • He was about to win a stupid prize, luckily he woke up before something happen to him or his family

    • He was about to win a stupid prize, luckily he woke up before something happen to him or his fame

    • Car could have been bullet proof but wasn’t bomb proof maybe he got sent some videos of that ๐Ÿ˜‚

  5. That wife, mother and kids been firing up his head that their lives are not worth that case! That’s why he’s quitting!

    • +T.R.S Blessed I think Eric Holder did not have any money. he had a discussion with Nipsey Hussle he didn’t like what he said motherfuker went and bought a cheeseburger s***. I don’t even know if he ate all his cheeseburger or not but he got pissed off and came back and shot one of the greatest black man in LA trying to help us black people succeed in life what the hell.๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ณ

    • Absolutely they’re not bullying you that was a warning…my family is too precious to be put in harms way…sometime we need to bow out gracefully this battle is beyond what we really understand

  6. You should have never signed up for that s*** in the first place… you haven’t learned anything….๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ

    • But that’s what lawyers do though… I don’t think he should of all ppl taken the case …but that is what lawyers do

    • +jessica hernandez
      Yeah he getting older too….. I don’t think he feel like being overwhelmed anymore

    • Mr Beach Dogg
      The police had a car description along with a license plate number of the getaway driver, along with eye witness statements. They caught the getaway driver and she talked. It so happened that their info collected matched up with the info being spread online.

  7. *HE KNOWS BLACKS ONLY KILL EACH OTHER SO HE WAS IN REAL DANGER. I NOTICE GEORGE ZIMMERMAN IS STILL ALIVE THOUGH.*

    • +CStarz I’m just here to say, you seem like a pretty stand up guy ๐Ÿ’ฏ๐Ÿ’ฏโœŠ๐Ÿพ

    • +Luca Boosie Salute, self hate got these clowns way too comfortable speaking against their own. Shits pathetic.

  8. I didn’t hear him say that he quit the case. All I heard him say is him and family received death threats. I think TMZ title is incorrect. Or was this just a clickbait?

  9. He said โ€œNo one can bully me.โ€ But he quit.๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
