To continue honoring Nipsey Hussle’s vision, Puma and The Marathon Clothing will reissue their debut collaborated collection, which was first conceptualized by the late rapper. Lauren London, YG, J. Stone, Killa Twan and Pacman Da Gunman appear in the reissued collection’s campaign and posed for photos while wearing the items in an Instagram post shared Thursday night (Jan. 23).
“#HussleAndMotivate” she simply captioned the two photos. One post shows London dressed in a crisp white tracksuit, while YG, Killa Twan, J. Stone and Pacman stand behind her wearing black and red.
The second photo finds a close-up of London wearing a white sweatshirt, which reads, “We (The Marathon Clothing) honor the endurance and unwavering faith of those that never quit.”
“Our products represent their testimony,” the message continues. “Life is a marathon.”
Before his tragic murder, Nipsey was planning a collaborated capsule between Puma and his The Marathon Clothing line. The collection initially debuted last September, six months after his death, and was sold out by the next day.
London previously teamed up with Puma to honor her late boyfriend in the “Forever Strong” campaign. The tear-jerking clip found London narrating a poem by Nipsey’s sister as she journeys through his Crenshaw neighborhood.
“There is nothing to hide here. No way to pretend. We relate, we disagree, we disengage,” she says in the video. “We are running into each other. We are the song that writes itself. The melody replays in the key of elevated living. We forget the words, we never forget the feeling. Glory and divinity conduct our symphony.”
More recently, the beloved Victory Lap rapper was remembered by London and YG through New Year’s Day posts.
“2019 changed the rest of my Life,” London wrote on Instagram on Jan. 1. “My existence shifted. Half of me is in Heaven and the other half is here to pick up and continue. Things will never be the same. But everyday I still wake up and Pray Lord, Use Me. Long Live Ermias.”
“Success is a blessing & all but 2019 took my brother,” YG shared. “I’ll give all this sh*t back & some to get my ni**a back I miss you foo. THE LEGEND [Nipsey Hussle]!”
According to a Puma press release, a portion of the sales from the collection will go toward the Neighborhood “Nip” Foundation. The reissued collection will be available starting Feb. 1.
