    not bad, but last years freshman were a lot more impressive. being a lyricist and fan of lyricism in my opinion, the only two i really like of this years are wiz, and big sean.

    Yea This dude got what hip-hop needs, a lyrical gritty west coast flavor laced with old school tendencies. Nipsey Hussle reminds me of Dee-Lo but not as smooth as D, which ain’t a bad thing.

    I see where it says “Most Determined”…. I like Nipsey Hussle’s music a lot. So I hope He’s more determined to keep his SOUL rather than be determined to sell his SOUL for fame and fortune…. I know if it were me, My soul is worth more poor. Just don’t sell out Nip. Keep yo soul Cuz….

    Love the music, Not just the bread.

    Peace
