Last week, West Coast rapper Nipsey Hussle got his “roll on” with a Game-assisted record off his forthcoming debut. This week, Hussle is back inside the Booth spraying rounds, once again alongside his region’s top dog. On the remix to his popular street record, the introspective emcee sends a message to all fast talking street thugs who pop off at the mouth but cannot back it up: my Bullets Ain’t Got No Name. Under the threatening and violent rhymes of Hussle and Game lies the stellar beat-work of producers Rocstar and Jon “Shipes” Shapiro. Despite receiving spins from Felli Fel on L.A.’s Power 106, Bullets won’t have the blessing of too many radio station programmers (radio edit or not). Expect Hussle, however, to find his place in the mainstream sooner rather than later.
