Listen to Nipsey Hussle on iHeartRadio

Nipsey Hussle is in hot water with the law for failing to show up for a court appearance. 

According to, a judge has reportedly issued an arrest warrant for the Los Angeles-based emcee after he missed a pre-trial hearing Thursday. 

The hearing stemmed from a 2012 charge of driving on a suspended license.  Because he's currently on the road promoting his "Crenshaw" mixtape, the rapper enlisted a lawyer to appear on his behalf, but the attorney reportedly never showed up either.  

Nipsey Hussle cancelled a scheduled tour date in West Hollywood, California on Monday.  His "Crenshaw" tour will continue next month with stops in Atlanta and Philadelphia.
