Nipsey Hussle likely has way more cash flow than your average hip hop star. Most have fame, but very little cash. Nipsey managed to force his way through the mix-tape gauntlet, and had the genius idea of selling his CD, for $100.00 each. Jay-Z isn’t too good for the hood. Nipsey’s I Am Proud 2 Pay campaign, got the mogul’s attention. He reportedly purchased a number of copies of Crenshaw from the Rolling 60’s representative.
A photo of 100 copies of Crenshaw was posted to Jay Z’s Life and Times site. Did Jigga drop a whopping $10,000 in support of Nipsey?
A Nipsey Hussle fan explained it like this, “There was only 1,000 [CDs] made, and I wanted to have one because that’s my favorite rapper. I’ve gotta support.”
Ladies will add ‘Gold Jay Z’ to their shopping list, and Nipsey Hussle will add ‘hood certified Gold’ to his resume. Everybody, and their moma is temporarily high off that Crenshaw, but would you pay $100.00 for it?
