The Marathon continues.
A documentary on Nipsey Hussle titled Hussle is coming in 2023, and we get a first look at the upcoming series.
Spearheaded by LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s SpringHill Company and Hussle’s Marathon Films, Hussle will follow the life of the late rapper Nipsey Hussle from his early days in Crenshaw to his successful music career and influence as an activist.
The docuseries will feature never-before-seen footage and commentary from over 50 collaborators including Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Diddy, and Nipsey’s longtime partner, Lauren London, among others.
Deadline reports Hussle is directed and executive produced by Emmy-nominated director One9 (L.A. Burning: The Riots 25 Years Later; Nas: Time Is Illmatic). Additional executive producers include Marathon Films’ Emani Asghedom and Kross Asghedom, and SpringHill’s LeBron James, Maverick Carter, Jamal Henderson, and Philip Bryon, with co-executive producers Skylar Andrews and Naomi Wright. Grammy Award winning producer, and Nipsey’s longtime collaborator, Larrance “Rance” Dopson is the music composer on the series.
“It’s an incredible honor for SpringHill to have a part in sharing Nipsey’s story and legacy with the world,” said James. “He used his gift to give back to his community and lived what it means to inspire, empower, and uplift others along the way. His words, his ambition, and his actions stick with me to this day as he continues to inspire myself, our company, and people everywhere.”
“Nipsey was a man of the people,” said Samiel “Blacc Sam” Asghedom, Hussle’s older brother. “He often said his purpose in life was to inspire. Nipsey’s light shone across the world. His life is a testament that his purpose was fulfilled. The family has taken the proper time and care needed to ensure that Nipsey’s life story be detailed and presented correctly and accurately. We are honored to be able to cement Nipsey’s legacy with this epic docu-series of his life. Nipsey said, “’If they made a story about my life, it better be a classic.’”
Nipsey Hussle was fatally shot in front front of his Los Angeles clothing shop in 2019 at the age of 33. Eric Holder Jr. was convicted of first-degree murder for the murder in July.
