Nipsey Hussle Ft. Kendrick Lamar – Dedication Off his Victory Lap album, Nipsey Hussle taps Multiple grammy award winner Kendrick Lamar for Dedication a standout cut from the project. The rapper who recently dropped Last time i Checcd with YG is back with some pure fire.
Borne of a Axel Foley-induced deliberate miscommunication, “Dedication” opens with a vintage, DJ Quik inspired instrumental, over which Nipsey Hussle lives and breathes his geographical roots. In the same way that Atlanta became synonymous with trap, the West Coast is an artist unto itself, with sonic staples that have spanned across generations; it’s always refreshing to hear Kendrick Lamar over beats of a particularly Western ilk, like “King Kunta” or “You Ain’t Gotta Lie.”
Both rappers are in fine form, trading verses while remaining on equal lyrical footing. Nipsey’s Victory Lap has been long overdue, and with its actualization on the horizon, we can finally get a sense of what the project might sound like. If “Dedication” is any indication, we good.
