West Coast rapper Nipsey Hussle has no plans of slowing down after pushing out his long-awaited Victory Lap. The hip-hop artist has weighed-in on gearing back up for another project with his longtime pal YG.
According to Hussle, there are still plans to put out a new collaborative YG effort called America’s Most Wanted.
“We went in and tried to. “FDT” was for the YG and Nip Hussle album, and you heard how crazy that sh*t came out? He put that on the album and was like, “F*ck that, I’m done.” And I understand that. Those sessions were sessions for the collab project. We went into Mustard’s studio every day. Young Thug came through. A lot of songs that wound up on different projects happened in there. … Nah, the idea is definitely not dead. Life happens. He got a solo career and I got a solo career. He got a kid and I got kids. That’s something the West wants, and we’re gonna do it, and we’re gonna call it America’s Most Wanted.” (Billboard)
Recently, West Coast manager Wack 100 shared a story about patching up his relationship with Nipsey following a brief fallout.
