Nipsey Hussle stopped by the Zen Studios to talk on The Cruz Show about not only musical endeavors but his business endeavors as well. The South Central native is a Grammy nominee as well as a real estate mogul, now owning the strip mall off West Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard.
While Nipsey just dropped his critically acclaimed album, ‘Victory Lap’ in February of last year, the rapper says he’s already back in the studio working on his next project.
“We getting’ back in the studio. I just finished building my new spot. I had been building a studio in downtown for almost a year…I love it.”
While he’s working on his new album, he’s also just released the single, “Racks In The Middle” feat. Roddy Ricch & Hit-Boy. He’s even working on other projects with other artists like DJ Khaled who features him on his newest album, ‘Father Of Asahd.’
“We did a record for the ‘Father Of Asahd’ album. We went to Miami and kicked it with him…his album is incredible.”
He also goes on to say that he is even going to hit up YG to work on some music together, however, in the meantime, the two are working on other business affairs.
“Imma tap in with him before he finishes recording. We working on something together too, that’s bigger than music; a collab project that we’re doing…we gon’ make that announcement soon,” he teases.
While he is respected by the OG’s, he still maintains a presence in the new scene of hip-hop, working with new rappers like Roddy Ricch. When it comes to the G.O.A.T.s like Jay-Z however, Nipsey’s hussle (no pun intended) speaks volumes to the culture they created.
“I think game recognize game,” he states, “I couldn’t speak for Hov but he probably sees the young people trying to follow the blueprint he laid.”
Looks like Nipsey Hussle is definitely onto his next “victory lap!”
