Nipsey is kind of in a precarious situation career wise. He is a dope rapper, he just makes the type of music that is hard to monetize. He actually did a really interesting interview with HipHopDX that you should check out. I thought the below excerpt best displays where Neighborhood Nip’s head is at.
- HipHopDX: I don’t wanna start off on a rugged note, but I gotta ask about the line from “Mr. Untouchable” : “High ’til we die, so it’s muthafuck a Detox.” I just need to find out if that was intended to be a shot or not?
- Nipsey Hussle: I mean, it ain’t a shot, ’cause it doesn’t [say] fuck [Dr.] Dre. But, you know, “High ’til we die, so it’s muthafuck a Detox.” …It ain’t nothin’ personal to Dre, it ain’t nothin’ personal against Detox, it’s just I’m on this All Money In shit… Niggas take it how they take it. I’m out here in these streets. I’m in L.A. I don’t see none of them [people] in L.A. I’m a real one out here. I don’t know about none of them other niggas… Like I said, it ain’t no direct fuck Dre [because if it was] then I woulda said fuck Dre. It was just me speaking my mind at that moment. Basically I’m on some if I can’t get money wit’chu, it’s fuck you. It ain’t nothin’ personal. I ain’t never really reached out to Dre, or Dre ain’t never really reached out to me, so it ain’t a shot against him, it’s just, my focus is on what I’m doing now. I’m basically in a mindset of like, either you with me or you against me type shit. So, the niggas that’s with me, they on the right side, anybody else [is] in the line of fire. And when I shoot I’ma knock heads off.
