SpringHill – a production house founded by the legendary NBA professional Lebron Raymone James Sr. & Maverick Carter – is joining forces with the late Los Angeles, California emcee Nipsey Hussle’s Marathon Films to release “A legendary story that must be told” on Hussle.
The untitled doc-series will showcase the “comprehensive and incredible story of Nipsey Hussle – from his days as a young boy growing up in Crenshaw, to the musician and activist he became in the later years of his life.” The doc-series, directed by the Emmy nominated One-9, will feature never-seen-before footage from Hussle’s life while growing up and becoming one of the most influential voices in Hip-Hop music, African-American activism and entrepreneurship. Reportedly, it’ll also feature interviews with Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg and more.
“It’s an incredible honor for SpringHill to have a part in sharing Nipsey’s story and legacy with the world,” Lebron James said about the collaborative endeavor. “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’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.” Nipsey Hussle’s older brother Samiel ‘Blacc Sam’ Asghedom said. “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.’”
