Jay-Z Bought 100 Copies of One of His Tapes
The eighth official mixtape that Nipsey Hussle released was Crenshaw. This was available for free online, but he also monetized it for those who wished to support his music.
Jay-Z ended up buying 100 copies of the tape – giving Hussle a $10,000 boost for his music. Crenshaw came out in October 2013.
An Artist for Haiti
The Artists for Haiti were a supergroup that formed in the wake of the Haiti earthquake in 2010 in order to raise money and awareness for the people of Haiti.
They recorded a song called “We Are the World 25 For Haiti” that was a remake of the 1985 Michael Jackson and Lionel Ritchie song “We Are the World”. Nipsey Hussle performed in the rap section alongside Snoop Dogg and Busta Rhymes.
Co-Owns a Brand Consulting Agency
Hussle is a partial owner of Marathon Agency, a consulting agency that seeks to advance the position of all sorts of clients in the entertainment industry.
He works alongside Steve ‘Steve-O’ Carless and Karen Civil, and has invested hundreds of thousands of dollars into the agency.
Marathon is nice because they focus on the clients they truly believe in rather than being virtual slaves to market conditions like many other entertainment consulting firms.
