    These #newrules make no sense. I like the #oldrules better. You know free mixtapes!

    It’s still free if you’d like to download it off Datpiff. But why would you give away a hard copy?

  • Steph Tyler Martinez

    Yeah I got the free but I still don’t get the point of a hard copy. It’s 2013 not 1993 lol. I don’t even have a cd player anymore

  • Kones

    If you don’t even get the point of a hard copy,then you definitely won’t get the point of paying $100 for one. You not getting the point of something doesn’t mean it’s pointless though. It’s a matter of showing support for something. It’s why people will pay more for deluxe editions. Or why people will pay well over face value for something when they buy it in an auction where the funds go toward something they support. It’s about supporting the artist at a level above and beyond “nah, I’ll just cop that for free”.

    That’s the entire point. It’s optional. You pay $100 to support all of the free music he’s put out over the years, not just the one CD. It’s symbolic. I didn’t by one, but I get the concept.

  • Steph Tyler Martinez

    I fully get the point but really a 100 for it? Put it out as an album and I’ll pay the .99 a track. A mixtape is promo for something after whether that’s an pay for album or pay for shows. Show me a fan of nips that’s paying 100 and I’ll show u a fool and a fake fan. I support artist 100% fam in plenty of ways. My boy Ransom just dropped with static selekt, I had it days before it dropped and I still copped it. Not for 100 tho. I’m out here campaigning for nips to win for free! I hear you tho.

  • Steph Tyler Martinez

    Put out an album and I’ll support. I get ya point tho fam. I didn’t think of it that way. 100 bills tho. That’s kind of wild don’t ya think? I’m sure most nips fans who want to support can’t afford that. I’ll pay that for a show. Ya feel me?

    Salute to Nipsey Hussle & the god Hov. #Crenshaw #NewRules #TIMELESS

  • Phillz the MC – #TIMELESS

    What is in the FINE PRINT of the $100 album that most people do not know is that the receipt is also a TICKET to the #Proud2Pay show strictly for the first 1000 fans that bought the mixtape/album. Complete GENIUS on Nipsey’s behalf. Salute to ALL$IN. #Crenshaw #NewRules #TIMELESS

  • Steph Tyler Martinez

    Oh now that’s dope. That’s a West Coast event? I’m an east coast fan and I’ll pay that for something out here.

  • Phillz the MC – #TIMELESS

    LA only show. That’s his city. I understand that. I’m an East Coast fan as well. We both missed out Lol Still Genius nonetheless. #Crenshaw #NewRules #TIMELESS

  • Steph Tyler Martinez

    That’s that bs. He got that off tho.

  • Moon Foreman

    There’s a lot of people that wont grasp this concept (or will and just mad because they didnt think of it first). This is a game changer he’s making a statements. First is fuck the middle man. Second is you pay for quality & support the hustle. Its just like niggas paying $160+ plus for Jordans that’s already been released three times, or for the new LeBrons. The only difference is you don’t see nike giving free jays away to the general public lol.

  • Moon Foreman

    its basically an album all original music.. and he made it available for the general public

  • GoombaLookinAss

    You think Drama gettin’ a piece of the action?

  • Mac Dre

    I understand, but that’s why he put it out for free on DatPiff. The $100 is completely optional. The mixtape is free. It’s the hard copy with everything it comes with and represents is $100.

  • Mac Dre

    If I paid $100 for the hard copy, I’d hope Drama isn’t on it… I’m not gonna pay that to have a DJ scream all over the music haha

  • IamRealTalk *FREE LAURYN HILL*

    damn this is a great idea… i was like damn why didn’t i or anyone else think of this before

    i was schocked when i heard about this idea

  • Napps126

    You pay 100 dollars for the hard copy, a shirt, a hat, and a ticket to the show. Total value $100 dollars

  • Anonymous

    I listened to it, and I did not feel that on it’s face value that it was worth $100. I’m sure if you’re already a fan that that $$ is going to support the artist, and the CD is just a nice gesture to thank the fans. If you ain’t a fan, though, it probably wasn’t meant for you to pay for it. Kinda bodeen for dude to call it a throwaway, even if that’s what it is.

  • Anonymous

    Of, course.

  • Anonymous

    At first I thought who would buy this at $100, but once I realized they are all autographed and they include a concert ticket it made sense. They don’t call him Nipsey Hussle for no reason, genius idea because the real fans will flock to it and he knew he had at least 1000 real fans

  • Omar Daley

    its like getting a souvenir, an artist puts wat more than a 100$ into a mixtape so its worth it

  • Eboni Moore

    now I get the picture very clever!

  • Anonymous

  • PaperPlates Clothing

  • homicide

    god tho…smh…HOPE YOU HAVE YOUR SEAT BELT ON…DICK RIDER

  • Phillz the MC – #TIMELESS

    It’s called SHOWING LOVE you COCKSUCKER! Mothafuckas like you is why new artists don’t get the proper respect. Your favorite rapper is probably Lil Wayne tho so I’ma let that slide. #TIMELESS

  • Jeff Najarro

    Why mention Wayne? That’s dumb. “You said something stupid, let me make fun of another artist” You ruined your argument, stooped down a level, and contradicted yourself. You’re mad that he dissed the way you salute an artist, and then you insult a human that ain’t even here to defend himself! Imagine if someone listens to Talib, Nipsey, HOV, and Wayne? What you gonna say then. Stereo types are stupid. Even when they’re about fans of certain artists.

  • Jeff Najarro

    he wont

  • Jeff Najarro

    LOL how many times does he have to say it’s not about the value of the CD, you’re paying for statement! Like donating to a worthy cause. You’re like the millionth person that has said,”it’s not really worth 100 dollars” no duh!

  • Jeff Najarro

    why not both rules? look it up. It’s also free. LOL pay attention y’all

  • Jeff Najarro

    Thank you, for being smart.

  • Jeff Najarro

    I feelz you, . . . but you’re statement about the fans that bought it is ignorance. I didn’t buy it, cuz I don’t have the extra money . . . but to assume the people who did are fake fans is retarded. I would never make generalizations about anyone. I wish I did have the hundred bucks, cuz I bet the pop up shop was dope. Hanging with music fans of all ages and races, taking pics . . . u know, chillin. It ain’t the physical copy; that’s like keeping your tickets from a concert. You pay for the experience, no one thinks a piece of paper (concert ticket) is worth hundreds of dollars. It’s so simple, but hey, I guess not to everyone. Show me a person complaining, and I’ll show you a convenient fan only interested in saving money. truth hurts don’t it

  • Jeff Najarro

    thank you, for being smart. People really don’t get it

  • Jeff Najarro

    You get a ticket to a secret show with that money. LOL pay attention man! yikes, ppl need to read more

  • Phillz the MC – #TIMELESS

    Dog. Was I talkin to you? Don’t write no paragraph to a person that wasn’t even acknowledging you. Thanks.

  • #SystemTeam

    Salute. We see you appreciate you and more importantly are motivated. Thank you. Sincerely.
