Hussle also touches on The Grammys.
Nipsey Hussle dropped one of the best albums of 2018, and he’s still riding on the high of being Grammy nominated for the project. Victory Lap is a masterpiece that Hussle is still breaking down and promoting. The West Coast representer stopped by DJ Hed and Bootleg Kev’s show to continue his own personal victory lap, and a wealth of information was revealed during the interview. Hussle touches on a joint project that he and Meek Mill are working on at the 8:15 mark in the video. “We been cutting ideas,” begins Hussle. “We got a couple records that’s gon’ go off for the Summer.” Both Nipsey and Meek are signed to Atlantic Records, so a good amount of yellow tape that blocks rappers on competing labels from making joint projects has been brushed aside.
In the interview, Nipsey also speaks on the artists that he would like to work with. “I like Swae Lee, I like Post Malone,” states Hussle at the 14:03 mark. “As far as producers I like Tay Keith,” he continues. “I wanna get in with Mike Will and do some more stuff… I wanna get in with Timbaland.” Hussle also covers his Grammy experience, a shelved YG/Dom Kennedy/Nipsey project, and much more in the interview.
