Nipsey Hussle’s birthday recently passed on August 15 as he would’ve been 34. The Hip-Hop community has been celebrating his legacy by continuing to stream his music along with purchasing clothing from his The Marathon Clothing store as well. The physical store is still closed as plans for a Nipsey Hussle Tower have been made official on Crenshaw Blvd and Slauson Ave.
Nipsey has had an endorsement deal with Puma and the brand is now rolling out some new collaborative merchandise. Nipsey’s Instagram page just announced that khaki and track suits will be the clothing that can be purchased. These will all be released on September 5.
The Los Angeles legend’s IG page also added that prior to his death, he had been going over samples, flying to meetings,bringing in material references he liked, and ensured that the products reflected his style authentically. The new Nipsey-Puma clothing should definitely sell out quickly as the out pour of support for him and his legacy will live on.
Check out the new Nipsey Hussle-Puma collab announcement below.

Our team is proud to announce that our first collaborative capsule with Puma drops on September 5th 2019. Nipsey spearheaded this project from concept to final product over the course of last year, flying to meetings, reviewing samples, bringing in material references he liked, and most importantly ensuring that it reflected his style authentically with no compromise. Each detail from logo placement, fit, colorways, and materials was thoughtfully done. His signature style and DNA can be found in each garment that’s part of this collection from the khaki suit to the tracksuit. This project is very special to our team and we’re handling it with the utmost care to ensure it’s delivered exactly as Nipsey envisioned it. It’s a privilege for us to honor his commitment and carry out this project for people to receive a personally curated collection by Nip Hussle Tha Great.
