Nipsey Hussle's name was adapted from the odd source of Nipsey Russell, an iconic comedian and actor. While the Slauson, California MC, born Ermias Ashgedom, may drop hazy humor into his rhymestyle à la Snoop Dogg, his flow owes more to the unflinching gangland narratives of early hip-hop kingpin Ice-T. A full-fledged member of one of the more notorious subsections of the Crips gang, Nipsey Hussle bleeds streets and became a quick mixtape favorite in the late 2000s. In 2013, he dropped his first official single, "Rap N*ggas," in anticipation of his debut album, Victory Lap. ~ Jason Thurston
