According to Complex, there is a Nipsey Hussle biography on the way that takes a deep dive into the life of the late rapper, who was murdered outside his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles earlier this March.
The Marathon Don’t Stop: The Life and Times of Nipsey Hussle is slated for release on March 24th, 2020. Featured in the biography will be commentary from the “Racks In The Middle” artist himself and interviews with those closest to him, published by Atria Books. “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,'” writer Rob Kenner told Complex. “This book is my attempt to help fulfill that intention.”
Kenner explained that although the biography is not authorized by Hussle’s family, a portion of the proceeds from the book will be donated to Nipsey’s estate. “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,” he continued. “I wanted to do my part to help set the record straight.” Give the work’s cover a look below.
