Eritrean News:  Would you pay $1,000 for an album?

That’s the question Nipsey Hussle is asking. The Los Angeles rapper has put his new album, Mailbox Money, online for free. But if you want a physical copy, of which only 100 have been made, you’ll need to pony up that thousand bucks.

“It surprises me,” he says. “As much as I believe in it. Every time I get a transaction, I get a text on my phone, and I’ve been hitting them back. The feedback and the connection I have with these people help me understand the psychology of the person paying $1,000 for some songs that, realistically, you could download for free.”
