Famous Lies & Unpopular Truths
Once again, Nipsey Hussle showed up to make this Monday a little bit more manageable. Instead of his usual Marathon Monday song release, he shared a new five-track EP entitled Famous Lies and Unpopular Truths. The EP shares its title with the final track, which is the only new one of the bunch. "Famous Lies & Unpopular Truths" couldn't be more definitive of the principled approach Nipsey takes with his music, thus why it's the titular song. Nipsey repeats the same passage of hard, concise street poetry a few times, and his bars sound impeccably clean each time.
For the first time in months, Nipsey Hussle did not release a song, music video, or mixtape last week. After feeling outraged for two seconds, we remembered that Nipsey has given us an extraordinary amount of bars in the last six months.

Nipsey Hussle's debut album Victory Lap is still an apparition that may as well not exist. But it's hard to complain, given that Nipsey has released a new song nearly every Monday for the last five months.

Over the past couple months, Nipsey Hussle has been releasing a new song every Monday in preparation of his long awaited Victory Lap album, and thankfully it doesn’t look like he’s ready to slow down either.

Something had felt different about this particular Monday, as the workday was nearing its end, and there was no new Nipsey Hussle track to show for it. Alas, the Slauson Boy is here now, coming through with his weekly Marathon Monday drop a little later than usual. This one's worth the wait. "FUCC EM" features Philly veteran Freeway and Nip's fellow Crenshaw collaborator Cuzzy Capone, who's guested on two Marathon Monday tracks this year.

There's no saying when Nipsey Hussle will begin the rollout of his long-awaited debut album Victory Lap, but given that he has reliably released a new song every Monday for the past four months, and will continue to do so until the album is out, it's hard to complain. After releasing "No Favors" last week, Nipsey returns this morning with "Foundations of a Man."
Just hours after hitting us with “State Of Mind,” Nipsey Hussle decides to keep it moving by dropping off his second #MarathonMonday release today called “No Favors.”
State Of Mind
Nipsey Hussle Feat. Y2
Nipsey Hussle wrapped up the first stage of his #MarathonMondays series with the release of the compilation mixtape Slauson Boy 2 earlier this month. After rebooting the series last week with "Can't Spell Success," Nipsey continues this week with "State of Mind."
Can't Spell Success
Nipsey Hussle Feat. Cuzzy Capone
Nipsey Hussle has pledged to release a song every Monday until he releases his long-awaited album Victory Lap. At this point #MarathonMondays is four months running with no end in sight. Hussle compiled his #MarathonMondays releases in last week's Slauson Boy 2 mixtape. The series continues this week with "Can't Spell Success."

Today's #TBT track isn't too much of a throwback, though it's likely one that hasn't been in the rotation for quite some time. And for those who slept on it in the first place -- it's time to get acquainted. It was the very end of 2014, a day before Nipsey Hussle released his fan-favorite mixtape Mailbox Money, off which he made at least $100K by selling out the 100 physical copies for $1,000 apiece.

Nipsey Hussle capped off his #MarathonMondays weekly music series with a mixtape that summarizes the entire run. The project features the sixteen records he released during the run of the series, including collaborations with Dave East, Young Thug, Snoop Dogg, Kirko Bangz and more. The compilation, titled Slauson Boy 2, just dropped today and contains one extra unheard collaboration with singer Stacy Barthe.
On The Floor

Nipsey Hussle has been stating consistent with his weekly music series #MarathonMondays, often opting for more motivational and inspiring subject matter than some of his past content. As he steers towards more mature content, his sound is also maturing-- he seems to be taking a page out of TDE's book. Can you fuck with it?
Running a few minutes later than expected, Nipsey Hussle continues to keep his #MarathonMonday series alive & well for us.
I Don't Stress
Thank you Nipsey Hussle, for continuing to make our Mondays more tolerable with fresh new music. He first kicked off Marathon Mondays at the end of April with the Young Thug-featuring "Thug Life." He hasn't missed a Monday since. Today's track, "I Don't Stress," is the 14th installment in the weekly series. Few rappers this year can touch such a prolific output.
Nipsey Hussle Feat. Bino Rideaux & Dave East
Nipsey Hussle may have gotten himself into some legal trouble this past week, but Marathon Mondays must go on. After releasing "Picture Me Rollin" last Monday, he comes through this week with"Clarity" featuring a hook from Bino Rideaux and a verse from rapidly ascending Nas disciple Dave East.

As part of #MarathonMondays, Nipsey Hussle continues to roll out new music leading up to the release of his long awaited Victory Lap album.
It might be a holiday, but there are no days off for Nipsey Hussle. The rapper has been getting busy with the Soundcloud leaks lately, teasing fans or else getting them ready for his long-awaited and almost-turning-mythical album Victory Lap. In this effort, he's basically released a new song each week.
Nipsey Hussle Feat. Mitchy Slick
The inspired tear of Nipsey Hussle continues. He's now dropped nine consecutive "Marathon Monday" tracks, and it still looks like it's full steam ahead for the Crenshaw rapper, who's enjoying one of the best years of his career. Here's the fourth new song he's released in June, following "Down as a Great" (feat. Kirko Bangz), "Question #1" (feat. Snoop Dogg), and "Ain't Hard Enough" (feat. Mozzy). His latest, "Full Time," features San Diego rapper Mitchy Slick.
Ain't Hard Enough

Coming in a few minutes late, Nipsey Hussle thankfully returns with another release in his #MarathonMonday series.
Nipsey Hussle Feat. Snoop Dogg
Nipsey Hussle has vowed to released one song per week until his long-awaited album Victory Lap has been released. This week, Nipsey Hussle links up with kindred spirit Snoop Dogg on "Question #1," arguably the best #MarathonMondays track to date. Produced by Myguymars & Mike & Keys, "Question #1" is organized around a thick 'n' thunderous West Coast bass line. We are living in the midst of a G-funk revival. Nipsey and Snoop are two of the most consistent rappers in the game, and they come with their usual levels of intensity/steez.
