What up, what up? Blog #3. I’ma be discussing my album in detail. The shit is coming out crazy! This has been in the works my whole life. I feel like everything leading up to this point has been the warm up. I gave the streets over 60 records this year once I drop Vol.3. So, for the album I had to really dig deep and format it different from my mixtape series but at the same time keep it hood. I would say I’m about 60% done with album. This is what I got so far.

IntroProduced by Detroit Red, scratches by Scram Jones: This record right here sets the whole tone of my album. Detroit Red made “Hussle In The House” so you already know this record right here is hard as fuck!

Hussle In The House— Produced by Detroit Red

Hussle Is My Last Name— Produced by Ralo: This record right here is my next single. My homie Ralo who been producing for me since day one did this record. It got a West Coast vibe to it but with a Down South bounce. I think y’all are gonna love this. The whole concept is anyone who’s a hustler can relate to this. If you a hustler then Hussle Is Your Last Name. Apply that to whoever you want that hustled their way into money. Khaled Hussle, Lebron Hussle, etc etc…

I Don’t Give A Fuck— Produced by QD3 & Jonny Shipes: This record is some deep shit that I actually recorded before I got my record deal, but it’s so timeless that it wound up makin’ the album. QD3 produced the original beat and Shipes came in and touched it up. The shit is where I was at in life before I had hope of makin’ it out of the hood.

Blue Laces— Produced by Mr. Lee: This is my favorite record on the album so far. I can’t even speak on it or describe it. All I can say is cop the album for this song alone!

Bluffin— Produced by The Runners: This is a potential single. This is big music right here! I went down to Miami and knocked this out with them at Khaled’s spot. He went nuts when he heard this joint.! It’s on some “y’all thought I was bluffin’, back against the wall” type shit but I’m here now!

Rich Roll—Produced by Mental Instruments & Jonny Shipes: This is some shit for the ladies but the streets gonna fuck with it too because I’m sayin’ some real shit on the record. Mental Instruments came with the concept and they had a hook on the record. When I heard it I loved the melody of the hook but not what it was sayin’ so I flipped it and made it make sense to what I know and what made sense to me which was some “Rich Rollin” shit. This is gonna be one of the singles as well.

Hussle Hussle Hussle— Produced by JR Rotem: This is a MONSTER right here. JR at his finest. It got Sean Kingston on the hook and I go in on the verses. This is some street club shit. And it sounds huge!
As for the rest of the album I’m still lookin’ so all producers holla at me! Send tracks to or Hussle Music, All Money In No Money Out… —Nipsey Hussle
