Nipsey Hussle is wrapping up his 2018 with one final victory lap (pun intended). On Monday (Dec. 31), the rapper released the music video for “Victory Lap” featuring Stacy Barthe.
The video, helmed by Directed By Sergio, follows Hussle from the Crenshaw District to Tulum, Mexico.
Earlier this month, Hussle told Billboard why his Victory Lap album –which was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rap Album– is the best hip-hop record of the year.
“I just think the amount of life, the amount of narrative, the amount of truth, the amount of pieces of somebody’s life stories that went into Victory Lap is one of the reasons why my album is the best rap album of 2018,” he said. “I wasn’t trying to make the album of the year, I was just trying to make something that would stand the test of time. I remember I was just referencing classic moments in hip-hop.”
