Not much to add that isn’t expressed in the mix… Nipsey Hussle was a one-of-one & an inspiration to millions. He shared his blueprint for success with us as he crossed goals off his bucket list with every release. From Slauson to the world, he dreamed big and lived his visions.
Every mixtape offered a new feel as he grew as an artist and person. And for what felt like forever, he kept telling us “Victory Lap coming soon”. In the meantime, we got Crenshaw, Mailbox Money, Slauson Boy 2… His mixtape catalogue is one of the strongest out.
He also introduced the Proud 2 Pay model, selling 1,000 copies of Crenshaw for $100 a piece and then 100 copies of Mailbox Money for $1,000. Or you could log on to DatPiff.com. Up to you.
When Victory Lap finally came, it truly felt like one. I’m just glad he was around to take it. Just over a year later, he was murdered outside his now-famous Marathon clothing store.
These are some of our favorites from his decade plus run of music, highlighting the different flavors he offered along the way.
