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.”

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.”

J. Cole Appears To Diss Kanye West On New Song "False Prophets" (Listen)

J. Cole ‘Eyez’ Documentary, New Music From ‘4 Your Eyez Only’ Album

 

(NewsnMusic) J. Cole released a documentary titled “Eyez” on Tidal Thursday, December 1, in preparation for the release of his forthcoming album titled “4 Your Eyez Only.”

Two songs, presumably from the project are heard in the doc. One of them titled “False Prophets” appears to take aim at Kanye West.

“Life is a balance/You lose your grip you could slip into an abyss/No doubt, you see these n!ggas trippin’/Ego in charge of every move, he’s a star/ And we can’t look away due to the days when he caught our hearts/He’s falling apart but we deny it/ Justifying the half-a$$ed sh!t he drop, we always buy it.

When he tell us he a genius but it’s clearer lately/ It’s been hard for him to look into the mirror lately/There was a time when this n!gga was my hero maybe/That’s the reason why his fall from grace is hard to take/’Cause I believed him when he said his sh!t was purer and he the type of n!gga swear he real but all around is fake.

The women, the d!ckriders, you know, the yes men/ Nobody with the balls to say something to contest him/So it grows out of control/ Until the person that he truly was all along is starting to show.

Damn, wonder what happened/ Maybe it’s my fault for idolizing n!ggas based of the words they be rapping/ Come to find out these n!ggas don’t even write they sh!t/ Hear some new style bubbling up and they bite the sh!t/ Damn, that’s what I get for lying to myself/ F*ck it, what’s more important is he’s crying out for help/ While the world’s egging him on I’m begging him to stop it/ Playing his old sh!t knowing he won’t top it.”
