Nipsey Hussle on Sound Session

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on April 28th, 2009 by Hyphen

One of the rising stars in hip-hop, Los Angeles’ Nipsey Hussle, came through Sound Session recently to chop it up with J. Moore and myself while out here on tour with The Game.  Just like you’d expect with a dude that many see as a young Snoop, Nipsey was cool as hell.

We talked all about his background (including how he got the name), his upcoming South Central State of Mind debut album, whether he had any reservations on using the familiar Kris Kross sample on “Hussle In The House,” and more.  Plus, we delved a little deeper than most interviews I’ve seen with Nip as we talked about his East African roots, fatherhood, how he wants to change the stereotypes of gang culture, and the difficulties in walking the fine line between reporting on violence and glorifying it.  Don’t miss this one y’all…
