Yesterday, a snippet of the project was shared on Nip’s official Instagram account, featuring a clip of a Mercedes convertible cruising along the street as it’s soundtracked by Hussle’s song “Love.” The video was also shared by the late rapper’s The Marathon Clothing brand and animation studio Oki Doki on their respective Instagram accounts. See it below:
“Celebrating the life of an incredible human, the Marathon Mixtape and the first week of #BlackHistoryYear,” reads Oki Doki’s caption. The animation studio had collaborated with The Marathon Clothing to produce the posthumous release.
The project was first announced back in December by The Marathon Clothing on the tenth anniversary of Hussle’s The Marathon mixtape. “The experience will give viewers an intimate look at the era that helped shape this masterpiece. The people, the places, the stories, and more,” the brand wrote on Instagram.
The drop of The Marathon visual album follows Hussle’s posthumous features on PARTYNEXTDOOR’s “Candy” and Big Sean’s “Deep Reverence.” The late rapper’s biography, titled The Marathon Don’t Stop, was also published in March 2020.
Nipsey Hussle’s The Marathon visual album will be available for streaming on YouTube tomorrow, February 5.
