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."
Mike & Keys, the Louisiana duo that has produced virtually all of #MarthonMondays, co-produced the track with Sap and Qwon Don. They set the tone on "Can't Spell Sucess" with dissonant bells and a snare that cracks like a whip. Cuzzy Capone appeared a couple weeks ago on Hussle's "On The Floor," and he returns with another solid verse here. Nipsey's verses are obviously great.
Thanks to my momma, both my aunties and my grandma
God bless you, cause I know I was a handful
The foundation, I was running through the sandbox
With the growing pains, but the love never ran out
