Tupac vs. Nipsey Hussle … one man has her heart, while the other inspires her, but who’s Lauren London’s favorite rapper?

If you follow Lauren on Instagram then you know she has a lot of love for Pac. She constantly posts pictures of the late rap legend and pays homage quite often. But, if you really know LL, then you’d also know that Nipsey Hussle has her heart. The two have been dating for quite some time and the notoriously private actress even upload pics of him from time-to-time.

But, when it comes down to choosing her favorite rapper The Game star says there’s no competition. “Nipsey” she exclaimed with no hesitation during a sit down with HipHollywood. “You’re talking about a real life love and a man I’ve never met … you gon’ get me in trouble,” London said with a laugh.

Even though her ears prefer Nipsey, the LA native says Tupac definitely inspires her. “He stood for something, he was truthful, he was a rebel and in a lot of ways that inspires me.”

Catch Lauren London and the rest of her cast mates when the final season of The Game kicks off Wednesday, June 3rd at 10pm ET/PT on BET.

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
