I caught up with Nipsey Hussle outside of his Crenshaw pop-up shop at Fat Tiger in Chicago to discuss being mentioned on SNL despite his not-so-funny background and the serious nature of his music, going from shining shoes as a youngster to being confined to a whole different type of SHU program in jail right after signing a record deal, the first song he ever made, which—fittingly enough due to comparisons—was over a Snoop Dogg instrumental, and the lesser-known origins of his Proud 2 Pay campaign that spawned a $100 mixtape.
Dropping the Nipsey Hussle interview tomorrow!
Interview with Nipsey Hussle coming soon!
Hussle in the house… Crenshaw pop-up shop at Fat Tiger in Chicago.
Nipsey Hussle gets “Up Close” and personal, documenting the European leg of his “TMC” world tour. The L.A. rapper speaks about his history in the hip-hop business, his failed deal with Epic Records, and return to mixtape roots while rocking packed crowds from Paris to Amsterdam to London.
