By now you already know, and you're feeling it. Just as much as XXL Freshman Top Ten alum Nipsey Hussle is feeling himself. Poised to usher in another era of trad West coast hip-hop, Nipsey has every reason to act that way. Saturday he'll put it down at the House of Blues in Los Angeles.

His debut, South Central State of Mind—that title suggest everything, doesn't it?—is forthcoming.
