Back in August of 2012, all signs were pointing towards Nipsey Hu$$le’s new project by the 4th quarter. Neighborhood Nip started the campaign by releasing random songs over classic R&B instrumentals, one after the other. By the end of it, we were looking at four new tracks Nipsey and ultimately, a title for a new album.
Obviously, December has come and gone, but we can never forget the little run Nip gave us last year. With him popping up on a few features as of recent, we decided to look back at those R&B tracks he released and hope people catch up as the new year starts.
Our favorite track out of the four might be his rendition of TLC’s “Creep,” with second place going to the Crenshaw remix of Total’s classic (download all four below).
Victory Lap is sure to be one of Nip’s best projects to date, and we trust that the delay will only make the project stronger and better. The fine tuning of certain tracks, guest appearances and producers that are set to appear, etc. You can’t rush greatness.
The marathon continues.
