Quintessential Nipsey Hussle

It’s been over a week since Ermias Joseph Asghedom, more commonly known as Nipsey Hussle, was gunned down in front of his newly established Marathon clothing store in Los Angeles. He was there without his bodyguard because it was an emergency trip to dole out an entire wardrobe to a longtime friend whom just finished a twenty year bid. The store was built on Crenshaw, in the heart of the gang warzone, and was meant to be a beacon of hope + a place of unity. He was 33 years old.

I’m not going to say anything more about Nipsey the man. That’s all you need to know if you have a pulse. Please enjoy the following Nipsey joints – I believe they are his best. Rest in power, Nip.

  1. “Tha Mansion”

2. “Gangsta’s Life,” feat. Snoop

3. “Outro”

4. “Shell Shocked”

5. “All Get Right,” feat. J. Stone

6. “Rap N*ggas”

7. “Call From the Bank”

8. “Mercy,” feat. Stacy Barthe

9. “Status Symbol 2,” feat. Buddy

10. “Hussle in the House”

Here’s a link to a Spotify list I’m compiling on Spotify – it’s a larger selection of his best work. The ten tracks above are in order at the beginning of it. STREAM HIS MUSIC! He owned all of it, his family profits from it, and his legacy lives on.
