Nipsey talks Meek Mills, Dr Dre, Hip Hop and Tech, Black and Brown Unity, FDT, Hussle and Motivate
Hard Knock Tv’s Nick Huff Barili sits down with Nipsey Hussle for in-depth interview. Part 3 starts with Nipsey talking about his new track Hussle and Motivate that he calls quintessential Nip. As the interview continues, Nipsey and Nick talk about FDT and how radio stations and djs haven’t supported the track as much as they should considering the community outcry. Nipsey also talks about unifying Black and Brown on the track and standing up for Mexicans vs Trump. Nick points out that the bringing together of Black and Brown communities through music has been missing for a while and how it reminds him of how Tupac would do that. Nipsey goes on to talk about how Tech and Hip Hop are alike and how artists need to start getting ownership in the tech companies they help get fans to because that is part of the valuation of the companies. A conversation with the founder of Tinder helped Nip better understand how a lot of tech companies get their valuation as companies. Nipsey points to what Dr Dre brought to the table with Beats and Apple Music as an example of artists recognizing the power of their influence. Part 3 ends with Nipsey talking about Meek Mill going back to jail for violating parole terms and talks about being on parole himself and how the system needs reform.
