Earlier today, February 12, producer Young Guru brought some ease to the wait after he posted some new photos of Jay-Z to his Instagram. The post was made to promote the release of their new song from the soundtrack of the upcoming film Judas And The Black Messiah.

A contented Jay-Z can be seen sporting unmistakable dreadlocks and wearing a piece of Crenshaw merchandise from the late Nipsey Hussle’s Marathon clothing collection. The veteran comes across as a very happy man, and his smile is from ear to ear. Young Guru captioned the post, “And this is what it feels like!!”

In another post, Guru gave a closer look at how Jay-Z’s locs are growing. He captioned that post, “This Friday new music from Hussle X Hov. What a soundtrack. All of my people are heavy on here ….

Nipsey Hussle ‘Victory Lap’ Album Release Party Halted By Gunfire

Nipsey Hussle’s Victory Lap album release party came to an end by gunfire.

The Crenshaw rapper hosted an album release party for his debut LP Victory Lap at the World On Wheels in LA on Saturday Night. Nipsey Hussle reportedly bought the place last year so naturally, that’s where he would host his grand album release party. Sources say someone started firing shots in the parking lot just before midnight and one person was struck by a bullet and taken to the Cedar-Sinai Medical Center where he is listed in stable condition.

Cops were quick on the scene but the shooter got away by the time they arrived, TMZ reported. The victim also refused to cooperate with officers leaving them without a clue about what went down. Partygoers thought that it was another mass shooting incident underway and some of them sound off on Twitter saying that everyone panicked. World On Wheels is an iconic roller rink located in Venice, Los Angeles. Nipsey Hussle helped the place get back up last year when he invested his personal money into it.

Nipsey Hussle Ink a Partnership Deal With Atlantic Records

Nipsey Hussle is on the verge of dropping his new project Victory Lap and now he is making some major moves.

But before that album arrives he is making some major label moves. The Crenshaw rapper signed a new partnership deal with Atlantic Records. Nipsey spoke about the details of the deal in an interview with Billboard. The partnership will encompass several albums including his upcoming debut Victory Lap. His own label All Money In will also take shelter under his new deal with Atlantic.

“It’s not about a fame ambition or getting a radio record,” Nipsey Hussle told Billboard. “The decision really came down to the message I’m trying to get across. I wanted to give that message the best chance to be heard and consumed on the highest level. That was my goal from the jump as All Money In took time to build its position in the hip-hop lane.”

Atlantic Records chairman/CEO Craig Kallman and chairman/COO Julie Greenwald released a statement praising the rapper for his work ethics and vision. “Nipsey is not only an extraordinary MC, but a true visionary and innovative entrepreneur,” the statement reads. “Over the past seven years, he has built an incredible brand that reflects his independent, non-traditional approach to what it means to be a creative artist in the modern music marketplace. We are thrilled and honored that he has chosen Atlantic as his label home.”

Nipsey Hussle recently made headlines for his split with his baby mama Lauren London. “[Lauren London] and I had a dope relationship and made a Beautiful child,” he wrote. “We are deciding to separate and raise our Son together as the main priority. This was A mutual choice and We will function with each-other as family w love and respect.”

Nipsey was previously signed to Epic Records but parted ways with the label in 2010 to form his own imprint, All Money In. He said that he was inspired by rappers who started their own labels like JAY-Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records. “Those labels started off as boutique operations, reached a boiling point in terms of cultural relevance and then partnered with a major to help take things to the next level,” Hussle said. “My vision is to build something like that. I really believe in Atlantic’s Julie Greenwald, Craig Kallman, [president of black music] Mike Kyser, and [senior VP of A&R] Dallas Martin. That’s their vision for All Money In as well. We’re not just taking a check and giving up all the credit for the work we’ve done to get here.”

The Game – Same Hoes (Sam Californie) Lyrics

[Hook: Ty Dolla $ign]
In the club wit yo main thang
Every week it’s the same game
Call that bitch a crew hop
Got me feelin like 2Pac
I see the same hoes, oh oh
I see the same hoes, yeah yeah
I see the same hoes, oh oh
I see the same hoes, yeah yeah

[Verse 1: Game]
Never fall in love with a bitch
Never fall in love with a bitch
Never fall in love with a bitch
Let her fall in love with the dick
I came through, 50 Bentley’s
Got my witness, got her digits, while I’m whippin
Lames on the side, nigga name on the thigh
Be the same whack bitch with them flowers on the side
I told her bye bitch, bye bitch
You can never fuck with my bitch
She rock Tom Ford
And I see you in them busted ass Concord’s
Tryna smoke my weed like a motherfuckin lawnmower
Everywhere I go, every video I see
One minute she with Drake, next minute she with me
Heard she fucked with Kendrick and my nigga YG
Heard she had two abortions last week
She a ratchet, get it cracking every time she on her feet
That bitch mouth a magnet to the motherfuckin D
Word the D y’all
Word to the motherfuckin D
Especially when (Mustard on the beat, ho)

[Hook: Ty Dolla $ign]

[Verse 2: Nipsey Hu$$le]
Look, I would never fuck you cause you broke
And you can never fuck cause you a ho
I see you poking out that ass, I’m like so
I’m runnin laps in these streets, bitch I know
We out here buyin Benz’s, out here buyin Rollies
Yo pussy getting beat the fuck up like Sodi
My nigga Chuck told me, my nigga Ty told me
Had yo ass on Adams fucking all of his homies
Took her down to ‘Shaw then got ran my brodies
It’s a cold ass game so I play it like Sony
Nigga I solely swear to never love a bitch, fuck a bitch
I be on some real Nipsey Hussle shit, fuck is this?

Hoes out here sucking dick, got ‘eem sprung and struck it rich
And after that she fuckin split
Pulled up on some fucking crips, some real B dogs and shit
And all we do is dog a bitch
I chase loot, not my balls and dick
She eat good when she with you nigga, she’ll starve with Nip, aye!

[Hook: Ty Dolla $ign]

[Outro: Ty Dolla $ign]
