Nipsey Blogs for XXL, Releases Artwork for New Mixtape
What up y’all it’s ya boy Nipsey Hu$$le. This first blog I’ma let you know what you can expect from me for the week and what I been gettin into.
I’m out here in LA filming a movie with my homie Ving Rhames called The Wrath of Cain in which I play one of his sons. That shit been mind blowing to me so I’ma take one of my days of bloggin to talk about that. You can expect that on Tuesday. I also been workin on my album South Central State of Mind which drops December 22nd so I been tryin to balance the filming with the music shit.
I just finished my new mixtape Bullets Ain’t Got No Names Vol.3 which is my best work to date. Y’all gonna go nuts when you hear it! That’s hosted by the homie Whoo Kid, Jonny Shipes and The Empire. Below is the cover artwork you see it here first on my XXL takeover so stay tuned I’m here all week. Let me know what yall think of the cover.
Other than that I just been dealing with my everyday life. A lot of people been askin me about how I feel about West Coast music and the state of it and what the problems have been with breakin new artists and what I did to break myself out here so I’ma discuss the whole West Coast music shit and my mind frame on it in my Thursday blog. Friday I’ma give my fans the Updated West Coast and I’ma name my top 5 new artists and top 5 new producers who I wanna shine the spotlight on like my homie Game did for me.

(Chicago concert) Press play -
Few sites have supposed lyrics transcribed, but these are the definitive words here:
"What are we talking about cuz i ain't got time
For what people be talking about all the time
Are we talking about fiction or are we talking about fact
You talking about fiction, hold up, pardon my back
I'm talking about life and all I hear is - Oh yeah he keeps talking about crack
I ain't talking about profit, I'm talking about pain
Talking about this film, talking about shame
I ain't talking about gossip, I ain't talking about Game
I ain't talking about Jimmy, I ain't talking about Dame
I'm talking about real shit, them people playin'
What is you talking about, I don't know what y'all saying
People keep talking about Hov take it back
I'm doing better than before, why would I do that?...
Ain't nothin' cool about wearing a strap
worrying your mums, burying your best cat
talking about revenge while you're carrying his casket
getting teary-eyed about to take it to the mattress
I'm talkin' about music, I ain't talkin' about rap
I'm talkin' about who's hot i ain't talkin' about bap
The conversation's changed why don't we yap about that
I don't run rap no more i run the map
A small part of the reason the President is black
I told him I got him when he hit me on the chat
I'm talkin' about progress, I ain't lookin' back
I'm trying to run track, 'try not to get lapped
People keep talking about Hov left em flat
trying to re-write history let's talk about facts
Dame made millions, even Jaz made some scraps
He could have made more but he ain't sign his contract!
In As far as street guys i mean we was all dealing crack
that's how the game goes I don't owe anybody jack!
grown man want me to sit him on my lap
But I don't have a beard and Santa Clause ain't black!"
