Ten months into the year and Nipsey Hussle still holds a strong case for album of the year with Victory Lap.
After teasing fans with clips or trailers of the video for “Double Up” with Dom Kennedy and Belly, Nip shares what turned out to be a mini-movie. The 11-minute video has plenty of cameos outside of the featured artists, like Lauren London, Jackie Long, Jay 305 and Dave East.
Nipsey explains the video best as “we wanted to expand on the idea of [the song] by telling a story of an abandoned love affair between a young hustler and his girl. The lifestyle ends up being too much for the girl and she leaves unexpectedly. Years later, the young hustler ends up fully legit and successful and runs into the girl and that interaction is where the story continues.”
