Less than a month ago, Nipsey Hussle announced his first DJ Drama hosted Gangsta Grillz mixtape was on the way. Today, we get the finished product in the form of a 21-song set of the rapper’s latest tunes. Neighborhood Nip recently spoke about the inspiration for the mixtape and its title. “This is my area. This is my home town. This is really like where I spent a lot of my time as a youth,” he said. [Crenshaw] is a foundation to my personality and my story. It’s where it took place at.” The project features appearances from Rick Ross, Dom Kennedy, Slim Thug, James Fauntleroy,TeeFlii and others. Behind the boards, Futuristiks, 1500 or Nothin,’ 9th Wonder, Mike Free, Ralo and Jiggy Hendrix put in work.
The L.A. MC sold the mixtape for $100 a piece, yesterday, at a pop up shop in Fairfax. You can stream and download the entire mixtape, below.
