Biography

Nipsey Hussle emerged from the streets of Los Angeles, California and as the first signee to the Cinematic/ Epic Records joint venture, is effectively building momentum as a rising emcee while sacrificing the only way of life he’s ever known. Admittedly a creative spirit born to unceremonious circumstances, Nipsey Hussle earned his moniker by absorbing all the hood had to offer and profiting from it tenfold. It was his sense of urgency that kept him alive and well. By the time he was 13 he had learned all the inner workings of a production studio and traveled daily to the Watts Towers Studio to perfect his engineering interests. His childhood innocence, however, didn’t last long and he was eventually forced to fend for himself. Nipsey yielded to the trappings of the hood, becoming every bit the ghetto celebrity. He set up shop, opening up a clothing store in South Central and imposed his will on the streets. His lifelong passion however, wouldn’t let go. So, without the benefit of knowing whether or not his artistic career would flourish, he took a chance and sold all his material possessions. From cars to $20k worth of jewelry, rims and more, Nipsey submitted to music and invested in a studio of his own. He recorded his first mixtape, Slauson Boy, Volume 1 and subsequently incorporated Slauson Boy Records. He’s the sociopolitical outrage of Ice Cube and N.W.A. He’s Snoop Dogg before you knew his name and Ice-T after an unexpected knock at 6 o’clock in the morning. He’s the very definition of Slauson & Crenshaw - a self-inspired movement and a name you can trust. Nipsey Hussle is affiliated with the Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips
