Nipsey Hussle Explains Why He Didn't Sign With Rick Ross and MMG

By Daryl Nelson

If things would've gone another way, Nipsey Hussle would've been signed to Rick Ross' label MMG.  But he changed his mind in the eleventh hour. Why? Because he wanted to stay loyal to the folks who introduced him to the world.

"I was gonna do the deal when Ross put the MMG thing on the table" he said. "Just the terms and the way Ross set up [things], and the way the conversation started in that building, it was a great opportunity. It was a great situation. I just had a concern with my team getting credit for breaking Nipsey Hussle, so I necessarily didn't want to take that from my team."

Nipsey also talked about how much respect he has for the Miami millionaire.

"I would have took that deal," he stated. "Even just outside of the terms, just how Ross hustles. I believe in Ross as a hustler. Everything he said and done, every convo we had, every time I sent a verse he executed it. So I got a lot of respect for Rozay, so I would have just done it off GP. But I got a team I committed to ahead of time, and I had to make sure they got the credit for what they did."

Do you think Nipsey made the right decision?
