Nipsey Hussle wanted to make a point by pressing only 1,000 hard copies of his new album, “Crenshaw,” selling those for $100 and giving the digital version away for free. He said he wanted to stick it to music labels for turning artists into conformists — and apparently, Jay-Z agrees with his message. Jay dropped $10,000 to pick up 100 copies of Nipsey’s album,posting a photo on his site of the impressive stack of CDs and blessing it with the “#Newrules” hashtag.
Smart Nipsey. Very smart.
