One of the most valuable assets that Nipsey Hussle left behind when his life was tragically cut short on March 31, 2019 was his All Money In Records imprint and the roster continuing to keep his legacy alive. Of the standouts on the label is J Stone, a longtime friend of Nip that was a key figure in engineering some of his earliest productions and vice versa. On Stone's new album The Definition Of Pain, you get to see exactly what made Nipsey believe in his rap talent so heavy. Oh, and you also get a few new verses from the late legend as well.

A sequel of sorts to last year's The Definition of Loyalty, which also included a posthumous feature from Nipsey on the album highlight "Nineteen," J Stone's latest effort is just as loaded with big-name features and an overall sound that preserves everything there's to love about West Coast hip-hop. Guest collaborators like T.I., E-40, Kash Doll, Trae Tha Truth, Dom Kennedy, Dave East and even T-Pain add their respective styles to the mix, and others like Kayo, Mike D’Angelo, Lyrivelli, GP45 and Alexandria Dopson make for fitting touches as well. Still, the tracks with Nipsey are sure to stand out the most, with "Lebron James" and "Started Wit Nothin’" easily being two of the hardest records on the project as a whole.
