Nipsey Hussle Talks Turning Down ‘NWA Movie’ + Dating Lauren London: I always knew she’d be my girlfriend. [VIDEO]

He shares that they’ve been dating for two years, but maintain a relatively low profile. Nipsey also talks about why he turned down “Straight Outta Compton”:

I just feel like it’s people in America, in the world that might not of heard Nipsey Hussle yet. Might not get exposed to what I’m doing yet. And that might be the first time they get exposed to it — as an actor portraying Snoop. I was considering too, but I gotta stick to my guns.
