We all know Nipsey Hussle was gang affiliated, he repped the Rolling 60’s until his untimely death back in March! Now the crips wants to trademark his famous slogan to help better the lives of youth in the community with their LLC’s…
The Crips have LLC’s?
From The Blast:
According to documents obtained by The Blast, the Crips moved to register “The Marathon Continues,” to be used in a mixture of services, including “Arranging and conducting youth sports programs.”
The application was actually filed by the Crips holding company, Crips LLC, on May 16.
Among the other services listed for Nipsey’s catchphrase, the Crips included, “Developing educational manuals for others in the field of community organizing, gang prevention” and “gang intervention.”
The application also mentions entertainment services to be provided by celebrities, comedians, rappers and “community organizers” from both the Crips and the Bloods.
An attachment in the application also mentions a documentary titled “The Marathon Continues,” that is slated for a summer 2019 release on “all streaming platforms.”
The Crips first registered their LLC in 2018, along with the Bloods street gang, who registered Bloods LLC.
At the time, a press release was put out announcing the rebranding of the organizations under the holding companies, and a refocused energy on the communities in South L.A.
Interestingly enough, Nipsey Hussle never obtained a trademark for “The Marathon Continues,” even though it was the name on his 6th album mixtape, along with his clothing line!
How are ya’ll in the business of killing folks but organized enough to form LLCs? What a time to be alive, I swear!
