West Coast rapper Nipsey Hussle is reportedly a wanted man after turning into a no-show at a scheduled court hearing last week.
According to reports, an arrest warrant for Hussle has been issued.
Nipsey Hussle is officially a wanted man -- and it's all because the rapper skipped court for his career ... which could now be derailed by an arrest warrant. Here's the deal ... Nipsey was charged with driving on a suspended license back in 2012, and a pretrial hearing was scheduled for Thursday afternoon ... but Hussle didn't show up. Nip says he hired an attorney to rep him while he finished out the last leg of his tour ... but the lawyer wasn't in court either -- and it pissed off the judge enough to issue a warrant for his arrest.

Last month, Hussle spoke out following a shooting that took place after one of his Chicago concerts.
"Nipsey did perform in Chicago to a sold out successful show. Venue was cleared and Nipsey was on a bus heading back to hotel, when alleged shots were fired in radius of venue. Nipsey nor crew were involved in any altercations or incidents in Chicago." (Statement)
According to reports, the gunfire let loose in mid-January.
Shots were reportedly fired following a recent Nipsey Hussle concert in Chicago. Nip is currently on his Proud 2 Pay (Crenshaw Tour) and performed in the Chi on Friday (Jan. 17) night at Reggie's Rock Club. Initially reported by AllHipHop, following the show shots rang out. Six shots were reportedly fired in all. No one was injured during the shooting and no arrests have been made. Initial reports also claimed that a member of the rapper's crew was stabbed during an altercation at the venue. (XXL Mag)
Back in March 2012, Hussle found himself connected to a post-concert Arizona shooting.
Tempe police are still looking for two suspects after Friday night's mass shooting at a Tempe nightclub. Fourteen people were shot at rapper Nipsey Hussle's show. No one was killed, but at least two were in serious condition. One man was arrested. In a statement, the Clubhouse Music Venue said it provided the same security it has been using for the past seven years following another shooting. The statement also said the last time Hussle performed at the venue, there were no incidents. (My Fox Phoenix)
