The Marathon Don’t Stop: The Life and Times of Nipsey Hussle
The Marathon Don’t Stop: The Life and Times of Nipsey Hussle is a raw look at what life is like for persons of color in California and provides a very close up view of what it is like to try and make it into the world of rap.
As I was reading the book I had numerous instances of thinking “this sounds just like Malcolm X’s life” and I have to say there are many parallels. They were both men who wanted to better the lives of their community and both did a wonderful job and were both unfortunately cut down in the prime of their lives.
The road Nipsey had to travel to make it in this business was fraught with hardship and crime. You feel so much empathy for the roadblocks he encountered and for the ways in which government and police did all that they could to hold back the persons of color.
I would recommend this book to those who want to become more aware of how much struggle some people endure to “make it” in the business.
