I’ve been fond of Nipsey Hussle for a couple of years now, I guess. I was taken by him when I first heard his name — a clever play on Nipsey Russell’s name. And then I listened to some of his music and I liked him even more. He’s definitely comes off as a West Coast guy who was probably influenced heavily by Snoop Dogg. Hell, he downright sounds just like Snoop to me at times, and he even looks like Snoop a bit for that matter.
So I’ve kind of been looking for a reason to post something about Nipsey for a while, and now I’ve finally found it: His video for “Forever On Some Fly Sh*t.” The vid finds our hero in Japan, flying first class and riding on bullet trains — like a goddamn boss — no doubt coming and going to perform sold out shows. And here’s the best thing of all: It’s a beautiful video. Makes me want to book a ticket to Tokyo right now, in fact. Well done, Nipsey Hussle. Well done.
