This “beautiful tribute to a legendary artist” (Quincy Jones) is the first in-depth biography of Nipsey Hussle, the hip-hop mogul, artist, and activist whose transformative legacy inspired a generation with his motivational lyrics and visionary business savvy—before he was tragically shot down in the very neighborhood he was dedicated to building up.

For Nipsey Hussle, “The Marathon” was more than a mixtape title or the name of a clothing store; it was a way of life, a metaphor for the relentless pursuit of excellence and the willpower required to overcome adversity day after day. Hussle was determined to win the race to success on his own terms, and he wanted to see his whole community in the winner’s circle with him.

A moving and powerful exploration of an extraordinary artist, The Marathon Don’t Stop places Hussle in historical context and unpacks his complex legacy. Combining on-the-ground reporting and candid interviews, “Rob Kenner has given us the book the world—and hip-hop and pop culture—has been waiting for…one that should be celebrated alongside the best biographies ever about iconic figures we have loved—and lost” (Kevin Powell, author of When We Free the World).

    Even though this is an unauthorized version of the Nipsey Hussle story, it really is a good read and if you are a fan of Nipsey(we should all be, weather it’s through his interviews or music or both) I think that you will get a clearer impression on what made him who he was in life and why millions are celebrating him after his spirit has transitioned to another dimension. He was and is an amazing, inspirational and motivational type person and I’m glad that he left behind such a legacy for anyone who chooses to look to him for guidance and as a blueprint on how to go after your dreams and NEVER give up. #themarathoncontinues TMC
