Nipsey Hussles family spar with Crips company over a trademark. This got Nipsey family worried, that something shady might be going on.
Reports have it that Nips family legal conflict with the Crips LLC — (Well the gang’s gone corporate) — over the rights to Hussle’s “The Marathon Continues” slogan has carried on, leaving family members frustrated.
The Crips organization filed a couple of trademarks for the phrase in 2019 — one for clothing and one for various services.
Shortly afterward, they apologized and swore to back off, saying it would not get into a legal battle with the family … which has several ‘Marathon’ trademarks of its own related to Nip’s clothing store.
So, it seemed like all would be well, but according to TMZ … the Crips didn’t take any action to withdraw its lawsuit, which forced Nip’s family to afford an attorney and file oppositions to the trademark applications.
