A Nipsey Hussle biography is in the works.
The Marathon Don’t Stop: The Life and Times of Nipsey Hussle, written by VIBE founding editor Rob Kenner, is slated to release on March 24, 2020.
Kenner told Complex:
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.
This book is my attempt to help fulfill that intention.
Rob Kenner said although the family has not authorized the biography, he plans to donate the proceeds 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.
I wanted to do my part to help set the record straight.
Do you plan to scoop the book when it’s released?
