Not many people have this trait, but apparently Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Diddy and Nipsey Hussle share this one very specific gene: we're calling it the "hustler's spirit." That's because all of them have gone out of their way to take risks for their artistry to infiltrate hip-hop in major boss ways — AND they've been successful doing it.
See below how Nipsey Hussle changed the game for independent artists and mogul MCs everywhere as he prepares to go hard at BET Experience.
Honorable mention: Chance the Rapper.
