Nipsey Hussle’s name has been buzzing since the rumors of him possibly signing to Maybach Music Group started a couple of days ago. Today, those rumors have been put to rest with the announcement of his partnership with DJ Skee’s Skee Music imprint. This may not be the “powermove” we all expected but I think this could work out well for Nipsey. You can read Nipsey’s statement after the jump.

“The separation between artists and their labels is the reason a lot of things don’t work. When people get together and pull resources, it makes it better for everybody. It’s 2012 and we saw the artists that have been successful recently, most of them built up their Internet base ahead of time and took advantage of the Internet and the new media and so I think that what you’ve got going,  Skee, is the perfect platform for artists like myself.”
