Only four and a half months after the very unfortunate and tragic death of Nipsey Hussle his fans and fellow rappers/activists still can’t seem to get enough of Nipsey’s talent.
And a new song from Rick Ross might just scratch the itch of worldwide fans. The LA rapper and activist has a new release entitled “Rich Ni–a Lifestyle”. The track includes vocals from Teyana Taylor, featuring a brief diss by Nipsey Hussle against Tekashi 6ix9ine.
Nipsey said on the track that is lifted off of Rick Ross’ Port of Miami 2 album. “How many n***s on your payroll? Rich g*ang bangers, y’all aint even know they make those Double caseloads, push buttons, I got say-so When it’s war time, never lay low, yall play roles
I can’t name a fake n**** that was not exposed
How yall n***s so surprised that Tekashi told?
Aint a real street n*** ‘less you got a code
Mines one comma, n***, followed by a lot of 0’s.
The whole verse delivered by Hussle has received a lot of attention and many positive comments, and the part where he called explicitly out Tekashi for being a snitch has become a viral sensation since the release of the new record.
Ross seems to be doing quite well on the creative front, moving forward with his career and looking towards the future with real boss moves, even talks of him switching gears a little bit, joining the cast of Coming to America the sequel. This is what Ross had to say about meeting Nipsey Hussle, ” Me, first meeting Nipsey many, many moons ago, I knew just looking in his eyes he understood his direction. He was one of the first artists that I stood next to and had a conversation, and he didn’t look down on his situation of being independent. He already had a plan, an idea”.
