Eye Candy : Nispey Hussle ... ( 2 Too Fine )
Epic Records is hoping that it will have the newest rap star in L.A.'s Nipsey Hussle, a young and focused rapper and beatsmith who first learned the finer points of creating and engineering his own music at age 14 through an after-school program at the Watts Towers that still exists a decade later. But while his name references the famous late comedian Nipsey Russell, there's nothing funny about Nip Hussle's street-focused subject matter. "Straight outta Slauson, a crazy m*therf*cker named Nipsey," he states, declaring his own South Central identity while tributing the legacy of NWA on "Hussle in the House"
