If reactions are any indication, obviously James Harden was genuinely touched when Nipsey Hussle called him out in the middle of an L.A. street last night, and bragged about his success right to a camera. Nip is an L.A. native, who loves the city, and couldn’t be more proud that Harden grew up here too.
In fact, Nip called out one of the schools Harden attended growing up, Audubon Middle School, which is located in the Crenshaw District, near several businesses Nip owns. “The n**ga that broke the NBA records for the highest motherf**king contract ever went to Audubon,” Hussle exclaims with pride. Nip is referring to the $228 million deal Harden signed in 2017, the highest ever at the time.
