Who knew Jay Z was a fan of rapper, Nipsey Hussle? We certainly didn’t, but on Tuesday Hov purchased 100 copies of Nipsey’s new mix tape, Crenshaw … which wouldn’t be that big of a deal if the albums weren’t going for $100 a pop.
The Los Angeles emcee is giving his latest project away for free via download, but also allowing fans to purchase signed physical copies for $100 each online. On Tuesday night, Nipsey announced that he had made $100,000 in sales in just one day, with Jay being his biggest supporter.
The following photographed was posted on Jay’s Life+Times website with the hashtag #NewRules.
Nipsey also posted a wire transfer statement from S Carter Enterprises on Instagram proving Hova’s purchase.
