Nipsey Hussle - Crenshaw and Slauson (True Story)

Hip-Hop Rumors: UPDATE: Nipsey Hussel And Roc Nation…


I don’t know what happened exactly, but something has gone awry with the deal with Roc Nation and the big homey Nipsey Hussel!! It seems that when I posted the post last time, there was no signature on a dotted line. I was initially told that the ink was dry. For whatever reason, there was some break down in this deal and Nipsey ain’t headed over to the Roc – YET. At least, this is what I am being told. I don’t know anything else, but I wouldn’t be surprised if there will be a big event later down the line to formally announce it. Stay tuned.

  • Bumpy Johnson

    he made 100K in 24 hours…i wudnt sign if i was him…but im not rap industry wizard

    • Khris Hutson

      If you’re referring to the mixtape, the majority of that came from Roc Nation money anyway.

      • BooBooBoy

        He sold 1,000 copies.. Jay bought 100 copies. How is 10% the majority??

      • dee


      • Jared

        The question that needs to be asked is who purchased the other 90% for $100 a pop??

      • krow132

        fans maybe?

      • Bumpy Johnson

        i feel u thats wat i was tellin my mans like…maybe if biggie n tupac came from their graves and make an album for me to spend 100$…fuccccc daaat …nipsey is dope but to me he never topped his song Hustle in the house

      • Khris Hutson

        So, are you saying that he shouldn’t sign because he’s good enough to do better on his own, or he shouldn’t sign because he’s tapped out and won’t pop mainstream?

      • 55rrere

        So ud spend 100dollars if 2pac or Biggie came back from the grave? Because they were soooooooooooooo special as artist huh compared to other rappers? GTFOH with that groupie ass mentality. Only reason you say that is because they’re dead. If you read between the lines you have a groupie mentality, even though im sure you dont realize it.

      • Bumpy Johnson

        fu<< u ..for us who grew up wit no father figures…tupac was a huge part of our up bringin, n after we sold crack , biggie became part of it too.

      • This nigga still flunkin pre algebra.

      • 100 copies is the majority from 1000?

      • All black men are rapists

        you might want to invest a little more time into your education ….math seems to be your week point.

      • Jungz

        And spelling seems to be yours…

      • Homegrown Chicks


      • Khris Hutson

        When criticism leads to criticism…

      • Khris Hutson

        Is it wrong that I downvoted my own comment?

    • Khris Hutson

      Because 10% is more than 50%, clearly. lol

      Yeah, that’s a mistake on my part. I agree with Jared. Who’s the audience that came off the other 90%? We talkin’ a lot of common folks or other artists that are down to suport? Even if it’s all fans, 900 hardcore fans doesn’t equate to hundreds of thousands or millions of sales.

      I don’t know if the $100 mixtape is enough not to sign. I want dude to win, but I don’t know if he can pull a move like this again.

      • Bumpy Johnson

        he spent 1000$ n made 100,000$….practice your math now and tell me how much he made bro…its way better than selling 300,000 n making like .50 cents a CD.

      • Khris Hutson

        Practice your math. lol. I get it. That was cute and unnecessary.

        Duplicating $100,000 from a mixtape, I think, is unlikely. That’s a one shot deal. We can deduct 10% of that gross right now. Albums give the possibility of a wider fan base for touring purposes.

  • TimeWillTellu1

    Hands down that boy got flows…Meaningful flows…

  • Reblogged this on Jessie Spencer's Blogspot.

  • As long as he don’t sign to MMG.

    • All black men are rapists

      or ymcm

    • Celz

      I was pissed when I heard Teedra Moses signed to Maybach.. That’s a bad woman, Ras Kass baby mama, and she has some legitimate hits under her belt.. Wish her the best though

  • therealest1

    This guy should be good friends with The Game by now because like how Game can’t get Black Wall Street off the ground after all these years, Nipsey can’t find stability with a label.

    • dee

      he dont want it he had labels coming at him for years dude just being smart about his moves instead of just signing a deal

    • krow132

      he does not want stability with a label though. He wants to be in full control of his music and if the labels are not giving him ownership then he does not want to deal. He turned down a couple of deals that were offered to him.

  • Azim Esmail

    Dre should have signed Nipsey.

    • Houston TX mayne

      Agreed. But you know Dre and Jay got history so im sure Nip will work with Dre and keep his west coast sound goin.

    They want to keep pretending that he is INDIE. For some reason, labels think that’s afffective to LIE and say that people are independent.


    depends is he roc nation artist or under management? he needs to capitalize

    • Houston TX mayne

      Anyway it goes, Jay will somewhat oversee his career. And I dont see how he can go wrong. When Jay bought those 100 copies of his mixtape from him I knew a business relationship was brewing.

  • Houston TX mayne

    Oooo shit! My nigga Nip mayne! Humble talented dude i wish him much success. GOD Bless

  • Jonathan Bacher

  • DollasTX

    nip aint signing to no damn ROC NATION … Jay showed love by purchasing 10k worth of Nip’s 100$ mixtape but NIP aint signing shyt …

  • ItGoesDownINtheDM

    there might be some truth to it cause i know nipsey is on some i want mines type time and if you aint goiing to give me mines then ill just do it by myself type stuff ……. when i heard that he signed to roc nation it sounded fishy based on that stuff hes been talking …

  • Splatter

    he should stick to what he doing. keep writing and do features. you can be unsigned and make your own feature price and show price. no pressure. no bullshit.


    i dont know if thats a good move, but i support nip all day!!!

  • I fux with Nipsey… that nigga look like he starving though….

  • brotha_man

    looks like a west coast prodigy. I support nip, I just hope this doesnt fugg him up tho

  • Arrie Mental Woodard
