The Crips Are Trying To Secure the Rights to Nipsey Hussle’s ‘Marathon’ Slogan


Members of the Crips gang are making sure Nipsey Hussle’s marathon continues.

In documents obtained by The Blast, Nipsey’s fellow gang members have registered his popular slogan “The Marathon Continues,” to be used in a mixture of services to help better the lives of youth in the community.


The application was filed by the Crips holding company, Crips LLC, on May 16.

Other services listed by the crips for Nipsey’s catchphrase included, “Developing educational manuals for others in the field of community organizing, gang prevention” and “gang interventions.”

In addition to that, the application also mentions entertainment services to be provided by celebrities, comedians, rappers and “community organizers” from both the Crips and the Blood gang members, The Blast reports.

After Nipsey’s tragic death, the two gangs decided to come together to bring peace in the streets and even held a meeting with the top leaders in each organization.


As of right now, it’s unclear if Nipsey’s family is aware or on board with the Crips taking the trademark over, or if they really want to keep the name in the family especially now that Puma has announced a posthumous line dedicated to the late star.
