1500 or Nothin

Out of all the reader-acclaimed artists who could link up for a collaborative cut, few pairings could be more unexpected than that of Drake and Nipsey Hussle.  The T-dot hip-hop/R&B hitmaker and the South Central street lyricist may seem to have little in common besides Booth-favorite status, but, as evidenced by this unreleased track (recorded earlier this year and leaked via the headliner’s blog), they make one hell of a team.  An intense, slow-burning jam revolving around the quest for artistic success, Killa is just the kind of cut you’d expect Drake to blaze—and he does, delivering a characteristically laid-back, braggadocio-packed opener and a catchy sung hook over 1500 or Nothin‘s organ-driven boardwork—but Hussle sounds equally at home, lacing his middle-bars with earnest, ambitious motivational lyricism.  If this high-powered collabo leaves you craving more, keep it locked to our frontpage for further leaks from Drake’s recent recording sessions, and watch for Hussle’s Booth-exclusive freestyle to premiere after our series resumes in September.
