Get ready for new K. Dot & Nipsey.
Nipsey Hussle officially kicked off the campaign for Victory Lap at the end of November 2017 with "Rap N*ggas" shortly after announcing that he signed a partnership deal with Atlantic. His album's been one of the most anticipated projects in hip hop for a minute after initially announcing that it would drop in 2014. However, the wait has been worth it, at least by how all of his singles have been sounding. While there's four more days left until the album drops, he got one more track to drop off before we get the whole thing.
Nipsey Hussle's collaboration with Kendrick Lamar on "Dedication" is dropping tomorrow through Zane Lowe's Beats1 show. Considering the two are staples in the west coast, it's surprising they've yet to collaborate on something until now. They've both have always shown love to each other for their music and Nip even came to Kendrick's defense in 2013 after GQ posted an article which many including Top Dawg deemed disrespectful towards Kendrick and the TDE camp.
Kendrick is one of the many features Nipsey has on his debut studio album. The rapper shared the tracklist last week which include features from YG, Puff Daddy, The-Dream and Ceelo Green as well as appearances from bubbling west coast rapper Buddy as well as vocals from Marsha Ambrosius, Stacy Barthe, Teefli and many more. Nipsey's definitely going to have something special on this album and by the way he's been carefully dropping each single, it's safe to say that he's about to make a major mark with Victory Lap.
