“They sent us $10,000, we sent out 100 CDs,” the L.A. rapper told MTV News. “I ain’t get the chance to holler at Jay, but through his people he made it clear that he respected everything, so I was just humbled by it. It felt like it was a good risk. It ended up working out.”

Not only did Jay Z buy 100 copies, Nipsey sold 1000 CDs in 24 hours online and at a pop-up store in L.A. If you do themath, that equals a whopping $100,000.
