This week, Nipsey Hussle met up with Billboard to promote Victory Lap. While discussing the genius of Master P and being influenced by Makaveli, the west coast rapper dropped a major tease. After touching on good studio chemistry with YG for “FDT,” “I Wanna Benz,” and “Last Time That I Checc’d,” Nip confirmed that the two were in early stages for a possible collaborative project.
Hussle went to say, “He put that on the album and was like, ‘Fuck that, I’m done.’ And I understand that. Those sessions were sessions for the collab project. We went into Mustard’s studio every day. Young Thug came through. A lot of songs that wound up on different projects happened in there.”
Nayborhood closed out giving an update on the effort saying, “Nah, the idea is definitely not dead. Life happens. He got a solo career and I got a solo career. He got a kid and I got kids. That’s something the West wants, and we’re gonna do it, and we’re gonna call it America’s Most Wanted.”
