The Marathon Don’t Stop: The Life and Times of Nipsey Hussle, a new biography exploring the life of the slain rapper, is due out next year, Billboard reports.

Arriving almost a year after Nipsey Hussle was fatally shot in Los Angeles, the upcoming book, which is slated to release on March 24, 2020, will include commentary from Nipsey himself and interviews with those closest to him. 

Speaking on the release of the biography, Rob Kenner, who is VIBE founding editor and the author of the book, said: 

"The last time I spoke with Nipsey Hussle, he told me, ‘I ain’t outside giving out jewelry or dropping off bags of money on people, but I’m giving out game,'" Kenner told Complex. "This book is my attempt to help fulfill that intention."

Kenner explains that although the biography is not authorised by Hussle's family, a portion of the proceeds from the book will be donated to Nipsey's estate. 

"He was one of the most fascinating artists of our time, as well as an important activist and thought leader, but he received relatively little acclaim during his lifetime," he continued. "I wanted to do my part to help set the record straight." 

The Marathon Don’t Stop: The Life and Times of Nipsey Hussle will be published by Atria Books.
