Nipsey Hussle's brother is battling the Rolling 60s Crips street gang for the rights to Nipsey's catchphrase "The Marathon Continues."
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Samuel "Blacc Sam" Asghedom filed a trademark application on May 29 to lock down "The Marathon continues" for licensing rights to companies and individuals for a variety of uses, including entertainment services, music licensing, marketing and promotions, and charitable events.
The Marathon Continues was the title of Nipsey's sixth mixtape which was released in November 2011. His now-shuttered clothing store, The Marathon Clothing, is located in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Sam is also asking a court to be named the administrator for his brother's estate since Nipsey did not leave a will before he was gunned down outside his clothing store by rival gang banger Eric Holder in March.
However, the Crips filed an application to trademark "The Marathon Continues" through their holding company on May 16, 12 days earlier than Blacc Sam.
The notorious street gang claim they want to use "TMC" to promote charitable events in the community and to focus on "gang intervention."
Once the U.S. Patent & Trademark office notices the dual application filings, they will have to determine who actually has a right to profit off the "The Marathon Continues."
