“It’s an incredible honor for SpringHill to have a part in sharing Nipsey’s story and legacy with the world.

Maverick Carter, media personality and CEO of The SpringHill Company also shared his excitement and reflected on the importance of the docuseries:

“SpringHill was created to put artists and athletes at the forefront of their stories in an authentic, compelling, and creative way. It’s an incredible responsibility to tell Nipsey Hussle’s story alongside his family and Marathon Films in a way that captures every facet of life from his childhood to his impact on community and culture. His legacy is so much more than music – he defined activism and what it means to never forget where you come from. It’s an honor for SpringHill to help tell this important story.”
