Dubcnn: Youíre on Dubcnn right now.

Nipsey Hussle: What it do, what it do.

Nik Bean: Dubcnn.com.

Nipsey Hussle: We at Regal Tenant, my boy Perfecto set the in store up, itís gonna be big. Just kick it with the fans for a little.

Dubcnn: Your single Hussle is My Last Name is getting spins right now on the radio. Is that gonna be an official single for the album?

Nipsey Hussle: Thatís like another street record we gave Ďem. We got a lot of requests from DJs. Itís basically like another one similar to Hussle in the House. We gonna shoot a big video for it. Itís a warm up record.

Dubcnn: Another record thatís recently been getting a lot of feedback has been ďGangsta LifeĒ with Snoop Dogg. Tell us about that record and how you and Snoop connected.

Nipsey: You already know I get all the comparisons all the time, ďOh you look like Snoop, you remind us of Snoop.Ē I always stay away from that. Iím not following footsteps Iím creating my own lane, but I always give him his due respect. Heís one of the best to ever do it from California in my opinion. We just ran into each other one day at a celebrity basketball game in Long Beach. And when we walked in he embraced us. Heís always knew we were a big fan of his shit, and always had respect for him. So we just got in knocked it out and it came out crazy. We did another record thatís gonna be on Snoopís project, itís crazy, itís a monster. Terrace Martin produced that, yíall getting exclusive info on that one. Itís gonna be his biggest single since Drop It Like Itís Hot.

Dubcnn: Thatís a big statement.

Nipsey Hussle: I said that so pay attention, itís gonna come out in November.

Dubcnn: Youíve been doing a lot of work with major artists, you mentioned Snoop Dogg and you. You also did something with Drake called Killer, and I also heard yíall did another song on your album.

Nipsey Hussle: Yeah we did a couple records.

Dubcnn: How did you get with Drake?

Nipsey Hussle: Same way. Itís impossible to be blind of other artistsí movements. So I seen what Drake doing and heís killing the game right now. Heís A1 and fresh, and he seen my movement. We respect each otherís movement and we ran into each other at the BET Awards, we spoke about doing the record. He sent the beat and it had a verse on it. And it was crazy homie, I liked it a lot. Got on it, shot it back, he did the hook. And later on I found out later my homies 1500 produced the record, and I didnít even know. So it all worked out. Itís a crazy record to get to people. Something to get to them, to fuck they heads up real quick.

Dubcnn: Youíve been working closely with K Young on a few records lately.

Nipsey Hussle: Hell yeah, shout out to K-Young thatís my nigga.

Dubcnn: Can we expect to hear you on his album and him on your album?

Nipsey Hussle: Me and K-Young got a crazy record on my album. I havenít wrote to it yet, but itís a crazy record, I kept it in the cut for awhile. Check that out itís coming soon. Shout out to my nigga Jay Rock, Mistah Fab, Problem, Bad Lucc, everybody.

Dubcnn: Anything else we can look out for?

Nipsey Hussle: Shit I just been working. I appreciate the support everyoneís giving me. I got my team behind me I got my city behind me. God willing I do what I came to do and take this shit back you already know West Coast.
