After releasing his highly successful Crenshaw mixtape for $100 a pop, Nipsey Hussle is gearing up for Victory Lap, his debut album that will most likely be sold for a more reasonable price. In a new interview with XXL, Hussle spoke on the new project:
Young Life is getting ready to drop his upcoming mixtape, Hard Knock Life 2, and he's shared a new leak from the project today.
Nipsey Hussle adds a verse to "Colors", which features a classic mid-tempo west coast beat from Vision.
Last week we received an early leak off this DJ Mustard-produced cut from Nipsey Hussle "Where Yo Money At", however it was clean and unofficial at the time. Today DJ V.i.P. has given HNHH the green light to let go the dirty version of the track without the LA Leaker tags.
Nipsey Hussle has been holding down the west coast for some time, so it was only a matter of time before he hopped on a DJ Mustard beat of his own. "Where Your Money", a taste of his upcoming mixtape with Young & Reckless finds him doing just that.
Nipsey Hussle's Crenshaw movement was definitely a successful one, he sold plenty of copies of his $100 album, which was also available for free download, and continued the movement with a "Crenshaw" tour.
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music.
