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 continues his Marathon Mondays series this week with “County Jail,” a stirring exposition on life and the struggle to stay optomostic while locked up in the Los Angeles county to jail. The nostalgia (for simpler times)-inducing track is produced by Resource and Marathon Mondays staples Mike & Keys. Clocking in at under two minutes, “County Jail” is short and sweet.
The marathon continues…
Back and forth to court, bank on niggas in these tanks
Laughing with my homies about the days when we was raised
You only down the street, but seem so far away
As I’m sitting in this county jail, tryna fight my case
