Big U has been working with several groups in LA trying to get them exposure and signed as major artists and his grind has been paying off, as Nipsey Hussle’s star has began its ascent.
Nispey has released 3 mixed CDs all entitled, “Bullets Ain’t Got No Name” and his debut album will be released soon on Cinematic/Sony records. He has already collaborated with artists Snoop Dogg and The Game and will be featuring several more artists on his new album.
