While fans are still reeling in shock of the rapper’s tragic death many theories surrounding his death started emerging on social media.

Some suggested the shootout was gang-related following Nipsey’s last tweet, which was shortly before his death, he wrote, "Having strong enemies is a blessing."

Others, including local rappers Cassper Nyovest and L' Tido suggested Nipsey's death was out of pure jealousy.

"Rappers always getting killed in they own hood. It be your own people that don’t wanna see your shine. We are our own worst enemy SMFH!!!!!   💔💔💔 R.I.P nipsey," tweeted L' Tido.

"Carpo used to tell me shit for not being fond of going home until Carpo almost got stabbed in Maftown taking a nap in the car. He called and said "Dawg you were right, this shit is scary". It be your very own people that are bothered the most about your success. Its sooooo sick," added Cassper.

Or was it his efforts to break economical barriers.
