Nipsey Hussle returns with a movie-like visual for “Double Up” – his latest video release in support of his debut album Victory Lap. The Sergio-directed video co-stars Lauren London who plays Nip’s girlfriend in his early drug dealing days. After noticeably getting fed up with the street life, London quits the drug business without informing Nipsey.
Ten years later, Nip goes out to inspect a mansion he intends to buy only for him to find out the sellers of the plush estate is a wealthy businessman played by Jackie Long and his wife Lauren London.
“We wanted to expand on the idea of [the song] by telling a story of an abandoned love affair between a young hustler and his girl,” Hussle tells Billboard. “The lifestyle ends up being too much for the girl and she leaves unexpectedly. Years later, the young hustler ends up fully legit and successful and runs into the girl and that interaction is where the story continues.”
Regarded as one of the best rap albums of 2018, “Victory Lap”features Diddy, Cee-Lo Green, Marsha Ambrosious, Kendrick Lamar and more. Watch “Double Up” video below featuring Dom Kennedy and Belly.
