Los Angeles, CA – When Nipsey Hussle signed with Atlantic Records and released his critically acclaimed album Victory Lap at the top of the year, the goal was clear to all.

Now that the past 365 days have indeed raised his Hip Hop stock, HipHopDXs newly crowned Hardest Working Artist of the Year has released a new single titled “Perfect Timing” that outlines how it all came full circle.

Perfect Timing…

Over the swirling instrumental scored by Mike & Keys, DJ Khalil and SAP, Neighborhood Nip spits choice bars like, “See ain’t too many like us, we like vintage Bape/And I don’t fuck with busters I can’t integrate/I know perfect timing feels like I’m too late/But every single time I drop, they tell me I’m The Great.”

The record, of course, commemorates the recent announcement that Victory Lap was nominated in the Best Rap Album category for the upcoming 61st Grammy Awards.
