LeBron James Drops Trailer To Nipsey Hussle Docuseries He’s Producing
LeBron James has dropped the trailer for his upcoming docuseries that will focus on the late rap legend and community leader Nipsey Hussle, Deadline reports. The Los Angeles Laker will be producing the film through his and Maverick Carter’s Springhill and Hussle’s Marathon Films. The docuseries will have never before seen interviews from Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Diddy, and Nipsey’s longtime partner, Lauren London.
“It’s an incredible honor for SpringHill to have a part in sharing Nipsey’s story and legacy with the world,” LeBron said in a statement. “He used his gift to give back to his community and lived what it means to inspire, empower, and uplift others along the way. His words, his ambition, and his actions stick with me to this day as he continues to inspire myself, our company, and people everywhere.”
According to the publication, the Nipsey docuseries will tell the “rapper’s life story, from his days as a young boy growing up in Crenshaw, to the musician and activist he became in the later years of his life.” The film is untitled at the time of this report.
“Nipsey was a man of the people,” Nipsey’s older brother Samiel “Blacc Sam” Asghedom said in a statement. “He often said his purpose in life was to inspire. Nipsey’s light shone across the world. His life is a testament that his purpose was fulfilled. The family has taken the proper time and care needed to ensure that Nipsey’s life story be detailed and presented correctly and accurately. We are honored to be able to cement Nipsey’s legacy with this epic docu-series of his life. Nipsey said, ‘If they made a story about my life, it better be a classic.'”
Hussle was shot to death in front of his clothing shop in South Los Angeles in 2019 at the age of 33. Eric Holder Jr. was convicted of first-degree murder in Hussle’s death in July.
