KSJS Urban Top 40. @NipseyHussle Hits #1 With “Face The World” Prod. @9thWonderMusic

Hey there ya’ll. Its StrongArm with an update on how our charts have been progressing. During the past weeks since my last entry which saw Ab-Soul at #1 with “The End Is Near” back on 6/20, we have seen  Talib Kweli top the chart on 7/2 with “Rocket Ships” featuring Busta Rhymes and Produced by RZA, who recently turned 44. Back on 6/27 San Jose’s very own Rey Resurreccion topped the charts with his take on a dope Jake One instrumental known as “Cream”. This week our #1 track is none other than South California recording artist Nipsey Hussle.

NIpsey face

The track “Face the World” features potent uplifting rhymes from the heart. How fitting that he raps over one of the dopest beats from grammy-winning producer, 9th Wonder. Nipsey has often been associated with gangster music, and without a doubt makes great west-coast knocks, however this track is a testament to his versatility and ability to inspire. Although rumored to sign to a major including Rick Ross’s MMG imprint, NIpsey remains independent, since his split with Epic Records back in 2010. His next project Victory Lap is due soon and tracks like “Face the World” as well as “Respect ya Passion” produced by B!nk (Bink Dog), and “Smokin With My Stylist” are a good indicator that it will be one to look out for.
