Big Sean’s recent announcement that Detroit 2 would be released was met with praise. Following his stellar 2011 outing, Big Sean looks to be on the right path of duplicating the success as he releases “Deep Reverence” that features a posthumous Nipsey Hussle verse over some head rocking Hit-Boy production.
There aren’t too many more words that can be said about Nipsey Hussle and his impact on the culture before his untimely departure. One of the final videos he shot before his death finds Neighborhood Nip alongside John Legend on the gospel-inspired “Higher” from DJ Khaled’s album Father of Asahad.
DJ Tiger gives us a project we didn’t know we needed when he blends DJ Premier production with the lyrics of the late, great Nipsey Hussle with “The Premier Hussle” mixtape. Turn this up and pour out a little something for Nipsey Hussle. Rest in power Neighborhood Nip!
It’s still hard to believe that Nipsey Hussle was taken from this world on March 31st when he was shot outside of his Marathon store in Crenshaw. It goes without saying how much Nipsey meant to the community and the 33-year-old made every effort to leave this world a better place. As a tribute to the late rapper, DJ Noize put together a mix of songs from Neighborhood Nip’s impressive catalog that clocks in at just over an hour.
It may be a difficult listen but it’s a reminder of how talented Nipsey Hussle was.
Rest in Power.
