Music journalist and a founding contributor of VIBE Magazine, Robert J Kenner stopped by to celebrate the life and legacy of the late Nipsey Hussle. Speaking with the 935 KDAY Morning Show co-hosts Cece and Romeo, Kenner discusses his decision and the importance of sharing Hussle’s complete story with his latest autobiography offering.
Although Kenner’s ‘The Marathon Don’t Stop: The Life And Times Of Nipsey Hussle’ might be an unauthorized look into Nipsey’s life, Kenner explains that he was compelled to create the book because of the significance behind Nipsey’s passing which sadly presented his career and legacy to many who may not have known about him prior to his 2019 death. As Kenner has a long list of accomplishments in hip-hop and journalism, his connecting moments he shared with Nip throughout the years drive the passion behind his new project.

In the book, Kenner explains that there are several un-heard and un-told stories that many fans of the late Ermias would be surprised to find out, like the moment that late mother of hip-hop legend Tupac, Afeni Shakur, invited Nipsey out to Atlanta to perform at a 2Pac posthumous tribute album release. Kenner goes on to speak on the social activism, entrepreneurial innovation, family life, and much more that is detailed in his autobiography.
