Fresh off announcing his new surprise album, Mailbox Money, Nipsey Hussle hits us with the project’s first leak.
Take a listen to the Mike & Keys and 1500 Or Nothin-produced “50 Niggaz” below and be on the lookout for the LP, dropping December 20th.
UPDATE: Want a hard copy of the album? You better have a rack to let loose. Yes, a THOUSAND dollars.
“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!”
“I wanted to do something with no promo,” he said of what he’s calling the “album before the album” which is due out later this month.
“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.
