Catching Up With Nipsey

What up y’all it’s ya boy Nipsey Hussle. This first blog I’ma let you know what you can expect from me for the week and what I been gettin into.

I’m out here in LA filming a movie with my homie Ving Rhames called The Wrath of Cain in which I play one of his sons. That shit been mind blowing to me so I’ma take one of my days of bloggin to talk about that. You can expect that on Tuesday. I also been workin on my album South Central State of Mind which drops December 22nd so I been tryin to balance the filming with the music shit.

I just finished my new mixtape Bullets Ain’t Got No Names Vol.3 which is my best work to date. Y’all gonna go nuts when you hear it! That’s hosted by the homie Whoo Kid, Jonny Shipes and The Empire. Below is the cover artwork you see it here first on my XXL takeover so stay tuned I’m here all week. Let me know what yall think of the cover.

Other than that I just been dealing with my everyday life. A lot of people been askin me about how I feel about West Coast music and the state of it and what the problems have been with breakin new artists and what I did to break myself out here so I’ma discuss the whole West Coast music shit and my mind frame on it in my Thursday blog. Friday I’ma give my fans the Updated West Coast and I’ma name my top 5 new artists and top 5 new producers who I wanna shine the spotlight on like my homie Game did for me. Hussle music All Money in No money out…—Nipsey Hu$$le

  • General

    Glad to see Nipsey gettin his chance to shine in the game right now…

    He’s a real talented nigga and everyone knows these days it ain’t easy breakin through all the bullshit in the music game to actually get a release, especially on the west…

    gonna cop that volume 3 and cover looks straight

  • capcobra

    i salute the music and the work ethic but since everybody co-signing..i mind as well ask a couple ?’s…is the leather jacket with both sleeves pulled up a tribute to mike or kanye? was you aiming for that west coast “prodigy on summer jam screen” look? or was you aiming for more of a snoop/tru life g’ed up look?…you dont have to answer that champ…i bet a stan..i mean a fan will…other than that much success to ya’ blessed and be safe in all your travels and endeavors..1

  • aquma

    Who is this guy? He sounds like a idiot on this blog.His name actually makes him sound like a straight fag…. Nipsey Hussle? THe Fuck? The only dude worth listening to outta the west is crooked i

    • Stuey

      BTW… WEst needs a new look. Ya’ll been taling about money, hoes, and keepin it gangsta for to long. You’re as stale as Ice Cubes flow (everybody know that shit has been the exact same since The Predator!!)

      • 619

        If you don’t know who the fuck he is then how can you even comment. And why you think the West needs a new look, so we can walk around wearin’ tight ass jeans and all kind of flouresent ass pink colors like everyone where you stay at.

        • 619

          The West has always been the way we are because we never change just because Joe Blow said wear pants that hug your nuts or so and so said singin’ autotune and wearin’ pink is cool. If you wanna look like a female that’s cool, but don’t comment on what we do. While the rest of the rap game turned into a bitchfest, booty shake contest, the West was one of the only spots that remained true. We don’t follow trends, we really could give a fuck about them and that attitude is what made people love the West, because they recognize that we never sold out to fit in.

      • GRN I’s

        Diz mu’fucka! if u think about it everybody rap about money cars clothes and hoes! AND EVERYBODY TRYNNA B GANGSTA!!! CUZ OF THE WEST! cmon dogg quit hatin! get off hiz nutz!

    If $ykotic if fucking with him, I’ll give him a fair shake. I’m from the left too, but never took the time to vibe to his shit. Heard a few, but..meh..

    I think I liked that political song posted in the bangers section a while back.

    Co-Fucking sighn 619, west dont play that tight pants, pink, purple, gay shit. We got a couple of under cover fruits out here. Tyger, and few others but we clearing them niggaz out.

    Dr. Dre gets a pass… he’s like that one gay cousin that you still got love for, but wont take over to your homies house.

    • $ykotic

      Yeah Mutada give him another ear. He’s repping the new wave.

      Once he get’s his hands on some big budget things he’s good $.

      This dude, Young Dro, Black Milk, and Wale are the only youngin’s I fukks with right now.

      And co-sign 619. N*ggas wear Polo over here too. THEIR WAY.

      These locals cats trying to think international.

  • Mutada al sader the king


    Even though I gave that nigga a hard time for the “f-America” shit, I dont play that shit. You dont like it ? Go live in Africa then
