“Know he a genius, he just can’t claim it, cause they left him no platforms to explain it.”
Nipsey Hussle’s new LP, Victory Lap, drops on February 16th. Ahead of the LP drop, he gives us “Dedication” featuring Kendrick Lamar. To fully hear everything presented takes multiple listens, as Nipsey and Kendrick both touch on their personal dedication to success, while under micro and macro structures of stress from institutionalized racism, gang and turf wars, music business practices, and even getting new shoes in exchange for good grades.
I use Nipsey Hussle’s Proud 2 Pay campaign in all of my music business classes, and it’s great to see him rebound and shine like this after being written off as a bust in some circles. This song is heavy, peep it below. Purchase it here.
