Watch The Heist Caper That is Nipsey Hussle’s “Hussle and Motivate” Video | @NipseyHussle #VictoryLap Bradford J. Howard February 22, 2018 Music, Music Video 1 Comment The block still has Nipsey Hussle’s back in his “Hussle & Motivate” video. Last week, Nipsey Hussle’s long-awaited debut album ‘Victory Lap,’ touched down on all streaming networks. The album was aptly titled: fans of the West Coast emcee had gotten mixtape after mixtape of quality from Nipsey, but a full-scale LP had been perpetually under construction until then. To say nothing of the smart timing of ‘Victory Lap’ releasing during Black History Month. If ‘Victory Lap’ was meant to be played once you reached the end of your race, it was both that AND an ideal soundtrack for the entire run, as well. “Double Up” and “Grinding All My Life,” for example, proved that Nipsey’s ability to make a hit was still very present. Meanwhile, tracks like lead single “Rap N*ggas” and “Blue Laces 2” are already gaining a following. On Wednesday, Hussle opted to drop his first set of visuals for ‘Victory Lap’ since the album’s release. The chosen song? The riding, “It’s A Hard Knock Life”-sampling “Hussle and Motivate.” Nipsey and director Sergio ultimately give “Hussle and Motivate” a mini-motion picture type feel. What starts out as a heist caper, with Hussle and his gang spurning into action when they need a bag for lawyer fees; transforms into an affirmation of Nipsey as the reigning king of his community. Even when it appears Nipsey and his getaway girl (former partner Lauren London making a cameo) might be on the verge of getting caught up, it goes the other way and the police end up being taken custody by the neighborhood. “I got respect in a hundred sets,” Hussle raps on the track, and the “Hussle and Motivate” video reflects that and then some. Watch the visuals for Nipsey Hussle’s “Hussle and Motivate” for yourself up top. Hussle’s ‘Victory Lap’ LP, on which the track appears, is out now on iTunes.
