Filmmaker Ava DuVernay is set to direct a documentary on slain American rapper Nipsey Hussle for Netflix.

It is reported that Netflix has bagged the rights for the documentary following an aggressive bidding war with Apple and Amazon.

The 33-year-old rapper, whose real name was Ermias Davidson Ashedom, hailed from Crenshaw, Los Angeles. Hussle was killed after being shot multiple times in broad daylight outside his store in March last year. He was nominated for a Grammy for best rap album in 2019 for his debut studio album, Victory Lap.

Hussle's family will be involved in the making of the documentary, which will be DuVernay's first since 13th (2016).

The documentary will be produced by DuVernay and Hussle's Marathon Films.
