Nipsey Hussle: "I Love NY Hip-Hop, I Grew Up On Jay-Z & Nas"

On Monday June 4th Nipsey Hussle kicked off his 'Victory Lap' tour in New York City's Irving Plaze so it was only right that he check in with "The Voice of New York" Angie Martinez.

While on the line with with Angie, Nipsey broke down why he decided to kick off his tour in New York which he was says was intentional since New York is one of the states that show him the most love aside from the West Coast. "I think outside of the West Coast I have a lot of love...I wanted to kick off out here because it's one the strongest markets" he says.

He also tells Angie that he's always bee a fan of New York Hip Hop artists and he's even been influenced by them musically in the past while working on his tracks. "I've always been a fan of NY hip-hop...I grew up on Jay & Nas" he says.

Of course one topic that came up was of him performing the 'F Donald Trump'song he did with YG at Broccoli City Fest with a photo of Kanye West wearing his "Make America Great" hat as background.  About which Nipsey says that he just felt like there was no better fitting piece of art to use and that hit was done openly and purposely. "I don't no subliminal dissing, that's how we all felt. It was a kick in the gut" says Nipsey about the image.
