Thus, like Khaled and others there is no question...

    To answer the above question, yes, mostly. His recent headlines alone show that there’s something to Nipsey Hussle, and we do get a glimpse of what that 'something' may be in Crenshaw. Overall, the tape is a good listen and a sound effort. The production is absolutely amazing. From top to bottom, there’s not a single whack beat on this project. Nipsey’s beat selection is one of his best...
