Publisher's Summary

A New York Times Best Seller

This “beautiful tribute to a legendary artist” (Quincy Jones) is the first in-depth biography of Nipsey Hussle, the hip-hop mogul, artist, and activist whose transformative legacy inspired a generation with his motivational lyrics and visionary business savvy - before he was tragically shot down in the very neighborhood he was dedicated to building up.

For Nipsey Hussle, “The Marathon” was more than a mixtape title or the name of a clothing store; it was a way of life, a metaphor for the relentless pursuit of excellence and the willpower required to overcome adversity day after day. Hussle was determined to win the race to success on his own terms, and he wanted to see his whole community in the winner’s circle with him. 

A moving and powerful exploration of an extraordinary artist, The Marathon Don’t Stop places Hussle in historical context and unpacks his complex legacy. Combining on-the-ground reporting and candid interviews, “Rob Kenner has given us the book the world - and hip-hop and pop culture - has been waiting for...one that should be celebrated alongside the best biographies ever about iconic figures we have loved - and lost” (Kevin Powell, author of When We Free the World).

Great listen... couldn't stop listening while at home, in the car, or at work. Nip's story is very inspirational.

The Marathon truly does continue, and does not stop!

Pretty good but not engaging enough for me

The book and story were overall pretty cool about what he did but it wasn't really written in a way that was catching my attention. After a couple chapters I was just not that captivated by it and ended up not finishing the last 3 hours. I personally liked gucci's book better.

Great look into Hussle’s life

When I’m listening to Nip’s music, I have some points of reference from info in this book. Made me feel more in tune with what was happening during the time Nip was recording his music. Loved the book

Great insight into his life

Great book only thing I disliked was an eloquent voiced person narrating trying to pronounce street slang, every word was like nails on a chalk board.
