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.”

Mase Drops "The Oracle" Diss Aimed at Cam'ron

 

(FreshAsFrankie) Mase dropped a diss record at former friend and Harlemite Cam’ron. The two have had an embattled relationship for two decades, as Mase opens up the track, “Imagine 20 years with a bitter b**ch and same the drama/ Dame told you do this sh*t and you don’t see Dame karma?/ K9 on your ass with no distraction/ P***y ni**a wearin’ pink I guess he think he matchin’/ I’ma paint the picture and let the hittas make the caption/ F**k bars I’m tell ni**a what really happened.”

He then goes at Cam for nearly four minutes over JAY-Z‘s Blueprint 2 bringing up some scandalous claims, from shady business dealings, and odd sexual claims, and restating himself as the originator of the Dipset honcho’s swag.

Listen to the track above.

“I’m from where dreaming ain’t allowed, especially when you dreaming aloud/Enough to dream your self-esteem into clouds/It takes tears, sweat, blood, five CCs/’Cuz I know what a kid in apartment 5C seed/Heaven knows all I had was hella hope, speed dating with destiny, I couldn’t tell her nope/When I first saw stars, television was my telescope/For me, something that could see me free was a bar/Through diamonds in the sky that never came down, now that’s a star/My vision was big enough to get me out of the space, I wanted to pass how far I see/I wondered could a kid from Mars see, a kid from Marcy,” spits Jay Z during the poem.

The “Dream. On.” clip will play at the beginning of Jay-Z’s set at Made in America fest, which takes place September 2nd and 3rd in Philadelphia. The lineup also includes J. ColeSolangethe Chainsmokers and Migos.

Jay Z Says Kanye Knows He Crossed the Line

Jay Z Says Kanye Knows He Crossed the Line

(FreshAsFrankie) Jay Z admits that’s where Kanye crossed the line…

Last year Kanye West famously railed against Beyonce on stage for rigging the MTV Awards and refusing to allow North West to meet Blue Ivy.

In a Tidal exclusive interview with Rap Radar, Jay Z admits,

“…what really hurt me was, you can’t bring my kids and my wife into it. Kanye’s my little brother. He’s talked about me 100 times. He made a song called ‘Big Brother.’ We’ve gotten past bigger issues. But you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem with me. That’s a real, real problem. And he knows it’s a problem.”

“He knows that he crossed the line. I know him. He knows. I know he knows, because we’ve never let this much space go between one of our disagreements, and we’ve had many, because that’s who we are. That’s what I like about him. He’s an honest person, he’s open and he’ll say things and he’s wrong a lot of times and he’ll confront it.”
