Hussle, who died in 2019 at age 33, was known as a skilled lyricist and activist who worked to build and unite his South Los Angeles community. The 39th running of the L.A. Marathon takes place March 17, 2024.
Hussle’s “The Marathon Clothing” brand will enter a team into the L.A. Marathon and all the money raised by each runner will go toward the foundation.
“We are honored to be able to partner with the LA marathon. It means a lot to us because it’s something that Nip spoke about and had an interest in being a part of. He told the whole team about it and how he wanted the brand to do something with the LA Marathon, especially since it’s in L.A.,” Sam Asghedom, Hussle’s brother, tells The Hollywood Reporter. “Nip actually wanted to run the marathon. He told us all to get ready and get in shape for it. That’s why it feels so good for this to be coming to fruition.”
Anyone wishing to participate in the marathon on March 17 in support of the foundation can apply on the Neighborhood Nip Foundation’s website.
