A posthumous Nipsey Hussle album is “definitely” in the works, according to J Stone, a close friend and artist of the Victory Lap emcee.
During a recent interview with “The Bootleg Kev Podcast,” J Stone said that Nip had done so much music before he was tragically killed in 2019. “It’s so much music this n*gga done did, bro. Like you wouldn’t even imagine, bro,” he said around the video’s two-minute mark. “There’s shit I haven’t even heard when I thought I heard everything.”
J Stone also said that they will put out Nip’s follow-up album to Victory Lap when the time is right.
“It’s definitely going to be another Nip album,” he continued. “But, it’s All Money In, so we ain’t going to put out nothing Micky. ... Rest in peace to (Pop Smoke). I feel like if they would’ve held on to his music more and put it out the right way, it would’ve been received differently. But, the music was still good and we needed it at that time.”
Last week, REVOLT reported that Nipsey’s debut mixtape, The Marathon, will receive the live visual album treatment to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its release. “Today marks 10 years since the release of #TheMarathon. A project our team holds near and dear to our hearts for many reasons,” The Marathon Clothing wrote on Instagram.
“It represents the story of Nipsey’s resilience and unwavering faith in his mission, and the authenticity and honesty in his message,” the brand continued. “It also was the first seed planted in the Marathon brand that gave fruit to many other branches that Nipsey architected, as only he could do.”
“In commemoration of this anniversary, we’re proud to announce our collaborative effort with Okidoki to bring to life an interactive live visual album experience coming in 2021,” they added. “The experience will give viewers (an) intimate look at the era that helped shape this masterpiece. The people, the places, the stories and more. Stay tuned, official drop date coming soon!”
