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.
