Nipsey Hussle Lyrics: Best Quotes & Most-Famous Sayings
“Grind strenuous, cash out continuous
Mogul in the making, autonomous black businesses
Broken culture that we all lost n*ggas in
Elevated innovation over ignorance
I represent it”
– Mark My Words
“It was visionary, either I’m genius or you niggas scary/Maybe it’s both and this balance I deliver daily/For every nigga in the streets tryna feed the babies/The single mama’s workin’ hard not to miss a payment/And dirty money get washed on royalty statements/Black owners in this game are powerful racists/Young niggas in the set that’s doin’ it makeshift/Out the garage is how you end up in charge/That’s how you end up in cars”
– Last Time That I Checc’d
“I’m a master of my faith, plus I’m the type of n*gga own the masters to my tape/I’m in Nevada for the day, I just caught a flight from Philly, we just sold out TLA/Fresh up off of stage on my way to B of A/AMB, we L.A, tryna eat, we the way/Look, young Nips, he the great, never talk/Had a drink, I just lead to the lake/It’s 80-something degrees in L.A/F*ck it, time to put some jetskis on the lake/I got a team in my bank, I don’t even need an I.D at my bank”
– Young N*gga
“My thing is that I don’t give no person that much power over my path that I’m walking. Not one person can make or break what I’m doing, except me or God.”
“I kinda came into my manhood, or what I thought was my adulthood, early. I had to show up, and I had to make sure I had gas money, food money, rent money, clothes money – everything was on me, startin’ at that age, so that’s what led me to start hustlin’, that’s what led me to start to try to find ways to fend for myself. And once I did that, I was full-time, bein’ in the street, and, bein’ in the street, it’s cold. It’s the way the streets operate, and you have to adapt to that.”
“Pull up in motorcades, I got a show today/It’s all I’m tryna do, hustle and motivate/Choppers a throwaway, hustle the Hova way/That’s why they follow me, huh, they think I know the way/’Cause I took control of things, ballin’ the solo way/And if you counter my trend, I make you my protégé/Slauson Ave. soldier race, n*ggas don’t know them days/Take you in back of the buildings, make you expose your age”
– Hussle & Motivate
“Gangbanging is a survival instinct, regardless of how anybody tries to paint it.”
