Another image from the collective shows Lauren with her head bowed down and perfectly parted hair rocking a sweatshirt with a heartfelt engraved message that says,” We (The Marathon Clothing” honor the endurance and unwavering faith of those that never quit. Our products represent their testimony. Life is a marathon.”

Earlier this month, she teamed up with Puma for the debut of the “Forever Stronger” campaign, featuring a heart-rending visual paying tribute to Nipsey. Lauren is seen flowing the same Crenshaw grounds once touched by Nipsey while narrating sentimental phrases. “I got a question only Lord knows; does life birth us twice?” she asked.

Nipsey Hussle was appointed as a brand ambassador for Puma in January 2018. The beloved Victory Lap artist was in talks with Puma merchandise manager Ian Forde about a co-branded capsule collection with his clothing line The Marathon Clothing and athletic apparel giant. The project promised to include every iota of detail Hussle manifested. The collection made its debut last year on Sept. 5, six months after his tragic murder, and was sold out the very next day.

Nipsey Hussle’s Favorite Books Inspires The Marathon Book Club

It’s no secret that Nipsey Hussle was a book worm. He frequently name-dropped his go-to books in interviews and referenced them in his lyrics.

Following his shocking death, a fan named Simran Kaleka decided to compile a list of the books Nip mentioned throughout his interviews. It was no surprise when the list consisted of informative, self-empowering books.

Kaleka’s list went viral and inspired the launch of different Marathon Book Clubs.

The LA Times did a story on the Marathon Book Club which are based in Los Angeles, Oakland, New York, and Washington. There are over 70 members from different walks of life, including professors, bankers, executives, and entrepreneurs.

The list alone speaks volumes on Nipsey Hussle’s dedication to self-improvement, but more importantly, it’s proof of his positive impact on marginalized groups.

Have you ever read one of the books on this list?

Wack 100 Denies Getting Knocked Out by Nipsey Hussle’s Manager, Offers Money Reward for Video Evidence

Wack 100 has been talking a lot of smack about Nipsey Hussle ever since he passed away. He passionately argued that the late rapper hasn’t earned legend status and it stirred up some sh*t.

Aside from the interviews of Wack arguing his point, there’s allegedly unreleased audio that’s a lot more disrespectful obtained by Gossip of the City where Wack said Nip wasn’t about that life and his killer was the real gangster. Nipsey’s brother, Blacc Sam, and his bodyguard, J Roc, are the only ones who heard the audio.

This prompted J Roc to pop the bottle backstage during Rolling Loud LA over the weekend. There’s no footage of the actual scuffle but here’s the aftermath below:

Wack 100 took to Instagram to deny claims that anyone touched him and offered a monetary reward for the proof. “I got 100,000 for anybody that can produce a video of Wack’s body ever touching the concrete,” wrote the Blueface affiliate. “On Piru I’ll run it today.”

Nipsey Hussle’s Bodyguard Allegedly Lumped Up Wack 100 For Talking Down, Twitter Waves Checkered Flags

XXL Freshman Class 2019 Concert

Wack 100 has swiftly become Public Enemy #1 is some Hip-Hop circles after he tripled down on comments questioning Nipsey Hussle‘s legendary status. The bodyguard of the late rapper allegedly put the mitts on Wack, and Twitter is waving checkered flags saying that the marathon continues for real.

Details are still coming in but it appears that folks are saying that a man named JRoc put the hands and feet on Wack with his artist, Blueface, grinning in the back. What video that is out there of the beatdown seems to show Wack shaking off the birds flying around his domepiece after catching the West Coast stomp and then chasing down the man who administered the fade.

Given the fact that Wack has been running his yap about Neighborhood Nip and the whole nine, it seems fitting that he would finally got chin-checked. And even if he didn’t get touched, something clearly happened to him of a physical sort as evidenced by the little bit of video that does exist.

As this story develops, we’ll fill in any missing details, including confirmation if JRoc truly did hand out the neck taper and lineup.  For now, check out the Twitter reactions below.
