This marks Nipsey and JAY-Z’s first collaboration, but Hov has long expressed support for Nip. In 2013, the late rapper was selling his Crenshaw CD for $100 as apart of his Proud to Pay campaign for his real supporters. The mixtape came with an autograph and a free ticket to his show.
“I got a DM on Twitter from a respected hip-hop journalist and he was just like, ‘Hov respects the move, salute,’ Nipsey Hussle told MTV in 2013. “A little while later, I got an email that came through my team that was like, ‘Roc Nation, on behalf of Jay Z wants to buy 100 units. Who do we pay? When can we get the shipment out?’”
