Apparently Jay Z supports Nipsey’s independent grind as he posted a picture to his website of what is supposedly 100 purchased copies of the tape.
Nipsey Hussle confirmed it via his Twitter tweeting a link to the image. “Shout to Jay Z for buying 100 copies of #Crenshaw!”
Nipsey had more information in a recent MTV News interview stating “They sent us $10,000, we sent out 100 CDs.” In the same conversation he added “I ain’t get the chance to holler at Jay, but through his people he made it clear that he respected everything, so I was just humbled by it. It felt like it was a good risk. It ended up working out.”
