Everyone, ourselves included, has been comparing Nipsey Hussle to Snoop, but after his brief yet intense performance at our party on Wednesday night, we've decided that's only because they kind of look alike. Hussle has no kind of Snoopish blasé when he's onstage: snatching spliffs, barking at the sound guy (sorry dude), jumping into the crowd and generally firing off round after round of awesome LA gun clap rap. If you missed the party, here's "Let's Talk Money," and make sure to pick up the new issue of The FADER when it hits newsstands next week to read our story about Hussle.
