Nipsey Hussle’s “Victory Lap” might be the best rap album of 2018. In what feels more like a victory lap, The Crenshaw rapper closes out 2018 with a new single titled “Perfect Timing”. Over a beat produced by SAP and Mike & Keys, Nipsey reflects on his journey, from serving time behind bars to rocking stages.
“I know ‘Perfect Timing’ feels like I’m too late / But every single time I drop, they tell me I’m the great,” – Nipsey.
Victory Lap, which was released in February, earned Nipsey his first Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album and landed a spot on many critics’ year-end lists. Listen to Nipsey’s hard-hitting anthem below.
