Nipsey Hussle – Rap Niggas (Video)

Nipsey Hussle - Rap Niggas (Video)

(FreshAsFrankie) Nipsey Hussle’s debut studio LP has been done since April and has seen numerous delays due to label disputes, which have since been sorted out with Nip’s All Money In label partnering with Atlantic Records. With progress being made, the Crenshaw rapper has finally put a release date on Victory Lap. In the meantime, the 32-year-old delivered a gritty “Rap N—as” visual to hold fans over until Feb. 16, which is just in time for NBA All-Star weekend.

The Sergio-directed video takes Nipsey around various city landscapes claiming he’s not like the rest of these emcees until the ending lavishly fades away with his crew on a luxurious boat. Before coming to a close the blacked out screen reads in a script, “In Loving Memory of Stephen ‘Fatts’ Donelson,” who passed away in September at the age of 30. Lauren London makes a cameo in the video, but XXL reported last week that the couple had broken up.

Hussle took to Instagram with a heartfelt thank you letter penned to his day one supporters saying, “You’ve come a long way with us on this journey. Through our ups and downs, you’ve stayed dedicated to us, our brand, and our vision. I want to say thank you. Without your belief, we would not have gone this far.”

Nipsey Hussle Inks Partnership Deal With Atlantic Records

Nipsey Hussle Inks Partnership Deal With Atlantic Records

(FreshAsFrankie) Yesterday, it was announced that Nipsey Hussle signed a partnership with Atlantic Records. The multi-album deal will include his debut album Victory Lap. The partnership will also include his imprint All Money In.

“The decision really came down to the message I’m trying to get across. I wanted to give that message the best chance to be heard and consumed on the highest level. That was my goal from the jump as All Money In took time to build its position in the hip-hop lane,” Hussle told Billboard.

Atlantic executives call Hussle both a great MC, visionary, and entrepreneur. Previously, he left Epic Records in 2010, the same year he founded All Money In. The rapper is also an investor in the Marathon Agency, which also helps manages his career.

In other news, Hussle recently called it quits with his longtime partner Lauren London. The two have one child together.

Cardi B Calls out Haters Who Criticize Her Spending Habits

Cardi B Calls out Haters Who Criticize Her Spending Habits

(FreshAsFrankie) Cardi B, one of hip-hop’s most outspoken artist, says she’s tired of people criticizing how she spends her cash.

The Bronx native’s smash song “Bodak Yellow” steadily climbed the charts, reaching No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100. She became the first solo female rapper to hit No.1 since Lauryn Hill released her single “Doo Wop” in 1998. So it should come as no surprise that Cardi likes to enjoy the rewards of her hard work.

However, Cardi B took to Instagram on Wednesday explaining that she doesn’t post every time she helps someone because if she did- the gesture would become less “genuine.”

“I hate my public figures spend money like on jewelry, on [cars], on something real flashy. People be like ‘you could be helping people out with that. You could be doing better deeds. You should be investing that money”.

Cardi continued, “How do you know that they not helping other people out. It wouldn’t be genuine if they post every time, they help somebody out.”

“How tacky and nasty would it look every time I break off my moms, break off my dad, break off my grandmama and I show it on the gram like ‘hey look’ that’s not genuine. That’s not being real. That’s not really helping somebody cause of the heart.” Cardi said.
