West Coast rapper Nipsey Hussle is putting some serious value to his upcoming Mailbox Money release by announcing plans to charge $1,000 for the project.
According to reports, the upcoming release will come with the hefty price tag for anyone interested in the physical versions.
“There will only be 100 hard copies and they are $1000 each,” he told MTV News, adding that it will also be released for free via iTunes and the Proud 2 Pay platform built for the Crenshaw release. “The 100 people that buy the P2P version will be granted access to a private advance listening session of [upcoming 2015 album] Victory Lap at the secret Marathon Store we are going to open the day of the listening!” (MTV)

Hussle also said the release would come stacked with new music.
“It’s all original music. Being honest, these ain’t mixtapes, they’re albums. These original songs, concepts, the biggest producers, the biggest rappers in the game are a part of [it] and bringing creativity to [it]. I don’t want to devalue it by calling it a mixtape. It’s really just music — more conversations for my people,” Nip continued. (MTV)
Last year, Nipsey made headlines for selling his Crewshaw project at $100 a piece.
In addition to unveiling the cover, the Los Angeles rapper revealed that it will be released on the same Proud 2 Pay scale as his 2013 mixtape, Crenshaw, which he sold 1,000 copies of at $100 a piece. The first leak off the project is a cut called “50 N*ggaz,” produced by Mike Keys and 1500 Or Nothin. (Baller Status)
