West Coast rapper Nipsey Hussle has been waiting to drop his highly-anticipated debut, 'South Central State of Mind,' for some time now, and it looks like he's finally received a firm release date.

The up-and-coming gangsta rapper has been signed to Epic since 2008, yet his album has been delayed for well over a year, with no real explanation.

According to Nipsey's interview at the BET Awards with Jenny Boom Boom of Connecticut's Hot 93.7, the album will finally drop October 19. 'South Central State of Mind' is set to feature a slew of stars including Drake, Lloyd and vocal supporter Snoop Dogg, along with production by Scott Storch, J.R. Rotem, DJ Khalil, The Runners and more.

Not one to sit idle, Hussle has also launched an acting career in the interim, appearing alongside Ving Rhames in the forthcoming film 'Wrath of Cain,' and has already revealed the name of his follow-up album, 'Hustlas State of Mind.'

Look out for Nipsey's 'South Central State of Mind' on October 19.
