See, Nipsey Hussle‘s brother, Blacc Sam who was dealing with his brother’s funeral, the family, and all the crazy to get things in order snoozed on Nipsey’s “The Marathon Continues” slogan.
His brother filed for a trademark for Nipsey’s “The Marathon Continues” slogan on May 28, which is 12 days after The Crips filing.

See, everyone is still trying to make money off Nipsey after his death
Nipsey Hussle’s brother could be heading for a legal showdown with The Crips over the late rapper’s well-known slogan.
Blacc Sam is currently handling the business for Nipsey’s estate.
On May 28, he filed a trademark application for Nipsey’s “The Marathon Continues” slogan, according to TheBlast.
The problem is, Nipsey’s gang The Crips filed for the same exact mark on May 16.
They are both seeking to use the slogan for entertainment, clothing and charitable purposes, so there will almost certainly be a dispute over the famous saying.
The U.S. Patent & Trademark has yet to approve either parties request.
