Nipsey Hu$$le: The Marathon Never Ends

blame it on Meka March 19, 2012

Speaking to TheWellVersed, Neighborhood Nip opens up on his feelings on a certain doctor, his former record deal and more…

TWV: You’ve had a chance to work with some of the elder statesmen of the West Coast but who in the West Coast have you not had the chance to work with that you are looking to work with?
N: When the time is right I would like to do something with all of the godfathers of the West Coast movement. That includes artists like Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Mack 10 and E-40. I just want the time to be right and want them to feel like it makes sense to work with me. I’m not an artist htat is going to pout or complain about not working with anybody. Even with Dr. Dre I was quoted (in HipHopDX) saying something (“It ain’t nothin’ personal to Dre, it ain’t nothin’ personal against ‘Detox … N—-s take it how they take it … I ain’t never really reached out to Dre, or Dre ain’t never really reached out to me, so it ain’t a shot against him, it’s just, my focus is on what I’m doing now. I’m basically in a mindset of like, either you with me or you against me type s—. So, the n—-s that’s with me, they on the right side, anybody else [is] in the line of fire. And when I shoot I’ma knock heads off.”) But I want to clear that up. It has never been like I expected anything from him. He actually came to one of my concerts and respected the movement. I have always respected what he’s done so I’m open to working with all of the godfathers of the West. I salute them.
