The book takes a deep dive into the life of the late Nipsey Hussle, who was murdered outside his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles earlier this March, and will be written by VIBE founding editor Rob Kenner.
The Marathon Don’t Stop: The Life and Times of Nipsey Hussle is due to release on March 24, 2020.
There will be commentary from Nipsey himself and interviews with those closest to him featured in the biography.
“The last time I spoke with Nipsey Hussle, he told me, ‘I ain’t outside giving out jewelry or dropping off bags of money on people, but I’m giving out game,'” Kenner told Complex. “This book is my attempt to help fulfill that intention.”
“Although the biography was not authorized by Hussle’s family, portions of the proceeds will be donated to Nipsey’s estate” says Kenner.
“He was one of the most fascinating artists of our time, as well as an important activist and thought leader, but he received relatively little acclaim during his lifetime,” Kenner.
“I wanted to do my part to help set the record straight.”
