NIPSEY HUSSLE IN THE HOUSE
THE NEXT THING TO BLOW, OUTTA LA!
COP THAT NIPSEY HUSSLE VOL. II MIXTAPE, I PROMISE YOU IT'S BETTER THEN HALF THE STUFF THEY PLAY ON THE RADIO!
"The perspective from LA is from Snoop and Ice Cube and them," Nipsey says. "Them niggas is grown. They did they stuff, but they out of that element now. They on some other shit. So it's like people want to hear what's going on in the streets [now] and that's what I'm providing with this record.".....Nipsey
I'm all about the west coast and anything related. So when I see a hot young, All Money In, no money out, type cat reppin' The Land, I have to support it! I love artists coming outta LA because shoot, it's HOME. We can relate to what he's talking about and he speaks for the streets.
You already know what it is. From the way he greets you, to the words that he speaks. The uniform he wears is bold, aggressive and absolutely intimidating. He's authentic - the offspring of the West Coast's most celebrated talent - yet and still a novelty all his own. In an industry that's fallen victim to bubble gum lyrics and erroneous dance fads to match, he's the spokesperson the block wants for. He's the sociopolitical outrage of Ice Cube and N.W.A. He's Snoop Dogg before you knew his name and Ice T after an unexpected knock at 6 o'clock in the morning. He's the very definition of Slauson & Crenshaw - a self-inspired movement and a name you can trust.
He is Nipsey Hussle.A devout member of the Rolling Sixty Crips, Nipsey Hussle emerged from one of the most respected sets in Los Angeles. Situated in the middle of South Central, he's as poised a banger as there comes. "I try to keep a balance with my career and who I am aside from that." says Nipsey. "It's kinda hard, but I try to stay the same nigga and balance both worlds. You don't wanna forget where you come from and at the same time, you don't wanna fuck off your blessing tryna live the same lifestyle you been living."The first signee of Cinematic/Koch/Epic Records joint venture, Nipsey Hussle is effectively building momentum as a rising emcee, while sacrificing the only way of life he's ever known. All in anticipation of a summer '09 debut, his singles, "They Roll" and "Bullets Ain't Got No Name," both featuring the Black Wallstreet CEO, are lyrical proof that Nipsey Hussle is here to stay. Slated to feature the likes of The GAME, Snoop Dogg, Kokane, Letoya Williams and Nipsey Hussle's own Slauson Boyz, 'All Money In' is a healthy dose of honesty, reality and life from an authentic perspective.
