Why Nipsey Hussle Will Be Relevant For Years To Come
Nipsey Hussle is a very unique player in the the realm of Hip-Hop right now. His hit "Hussle & Motivate" is a mantra he lives by - besides being arguably one of the hottest artists currently in the game, he's paved a way for himself unlike many of the others. Press play below to get a slight glimpse of what he's been up to over the past few years.
What we've been seeing is that music streaming has taken a large portion of the income artists were making off the table. The popular route to produce alternative income as of late has been through branded merch based on tours or pop-up shops. Nipsey forgoes these methods altogether, creating a vertically integrated platform to distribute his clothing, music, etc. Did we mention he's also an early adopter to cryptocurrency?
One day before the February release of his highly anticipated debut album "Victory Lap," L.A. rapper Nipsey Hussle cut the ribbon on a combination co-working space and STEM center in the Crenshaw district called Vector90. This means while pushing out albums, content, merch, investing in crypto and other companies, he's also taking it upon himself to create a platform to address the lack of diversity in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Yo, shoutout to Nipsey man. Hussle & Motivate.
