After recently unleashing his official debut studio album Victory Lap, Nipsey Hussle hit the promo circuit to promote his latest offering, paying New York's Funkmaster Flex a visit at Hot 97 to show off his lyrical abilities in a new freestyle. 

Taking a seat alongside the DJ and radio personality, Nipsey sets the tone for his freestyle by confidently declaring he's gonna "make sure it's a classic" by the end of his session. Over Nas' classic "If I Ruled The World" beat, Nipsey raps about the reality of street life saying, "N----s dying every day that's the price of war/ Gang members spending thousands at the nicest stores/ Levitate on five-star luxury, every time I ride shit come for me."

Later on in his freestyle, Nip offers up his own wisdom of succeeding in "the game of life."

"This year I'm dropping my best music/ Hope you n----s get rich and reinvest to," he raps. "I wish you n----s success just minus the stress to it/ Lot of stages, lots of losses and regrets to it/ The game of life, you ain't the type to accept losing."

Victory Lap is Nipsey's first official offering following his All Money In label inked a partnership with Atlantic Records. The album features the Kendrick Lamar-featuring "Dedication," ""Rap N----" and “Last Time That I Checc’d" the latter with fellow west coast rapper YG.
