Nipsey Hussle’s clothing brand is working with fashion designer Jerry Lorenzo on a limited edition capsule collection … and sales proceeds are going straight to the trust fund for the late rapper’s children. The Marathon Clothing announced…
Due out in 2020.
As suspected there are several layers to yet to be peeled on Nipsey Hussle’s murder. The law has confirmed they were keeping tabs on his movements prior to his death.
TMZ has confirmed that the LAPD had an open investigation on Nip’s crew and his retail location. According to the report the police were not eyeing the rapper specifically but all the alleged gang activity the Marathon Clothing store attracted.
To make matters even more touchy one of the website’s inside sources claims the investigation is now causing an uproar as the department was once commending Nip for encouraging local gang members to keep the peace. Hussle was an admitted Rollin’ 60’s Crip. His family closed the store shortly after his untimely death but the wears are still available on the Marathon Clothing site.
In June police confirmed the getaway driver in his murder was offered protection for her cooperation.

Nipsey Hussle stays hustling and his Proud2Pay movement has becoming a staple for the rapper with him moving about 60 copies of his new album at $ 1,000 per copy.
The rapper released his latest MailBox Money and gave fans the option to download it for free, get it on iTunes or pay $ 1,000 for a physical copy with several bonuses.
Nipsey said that he was surprised to see so many people paying that much money for the album.
“It surprises me. As much as I believe in it. Every time I get a transaction, I get a text on my phone, and I’ve been hitting them back,” Nip told The Guardian. “The feedback and the connection I have with these people help me understand the psychology of the person paying $ 1,000 for some songs that, realistically, you could download for free.
The highest human act is to inspire. Money is a tool – it’s the means, not the end. [Inspiration is] the metric that dictates whether or not a project is a success. It’s more realistic than trying to aim for radio play, or trying to satisfy an A&R, or the other gatekeepers on these platforms. I don’t even know how to create with those things in mind. But if you tell me the goal is to inspire? That makes my job a lot easier.”
These 60 people will get free access to Nipsey’s next album, which will be called Victory Lap.
Nipsey continues his #Proud2Pay campaign with his project costing over $ 1000 for his newest project “Mailbox Money.” Today the Crenshaw and Slauson rep gives DJ Drama the greenlight to premiere one of the standout records from the project. This one features Young Thug & Rich Homie Quan and is titled “Choke.” Track was produced by London.
