Nipsey Hussle's name was adapted from the odd source of Nipsey Russell, an iconic comedian and actor.
While the Slauson, California MC, born Ermias Ashgedom, may drop hazy humor into his rhyme style à la Snoop Dogg, his flow owes more to the unflinching gangland narratives of early hip-hop kingpin Ice-T. A full-fledged member of one of the more notorious subsections of the Crips gang, Nipsey Hussle bleeds streets and became a quick mixtape favorite in the late 2000s. Starting with Slauson Boy in 2005, the rapper issued a trio of Bullets Ain't Got No Name volumes in 2008 and 2009 before moving on to The Marathon and its sequel in 2011. His eighth official mixtape, Crenshaw, arrived in 2013. It broke into the Top 40 of the Billboard Heatseekers chart and featured appearances by James Fauntleroy, Slim Thug, Z-Ro, Rick Ross, and more. Mailbox Money was released on the last day of 2014 and featured guests like Rick Ross, Dom Kennedy, Trae tha Truth, and producers DJ Mustard and DJ Khalil. In 2017, Hussle returned to the scene with "Still," which rode a sample of Dr. Dre's "Still D.R.E." and featured appearances by Sloanbone and Pozition. ~ Neil Z. Yeung & Jason Thurston, Rovi
