Puma Pays Nipsey Hussle’s Kids Yearly Regardless of Business

Ian Servantes

Nipsey Hussle’s endorsement deal with Puma, which was inked just weeks before his passing in 2019, has continued his legacy with regular posthumous releases. This would seemingly bode well for his children, but Nipsey’s brother has revealed that Puma makes yearly deposits into the kids’ trust fund regardless of business.

Blacc Sam broke down the arrangement between Puma and Nipsey Hussle’s estate in an interview with Earn Your Leisure. “After everything, they came back to the table and made sure the kids was set up straight,” Sam said on the podcast. “It had nothing to do with sales of clothes or the success of the capsules, just off the top every year they hit the kids in the trust fund. They did right for Hussle.”

Prior to his death, Hussle had requested that Puma release yearly collections along with his brand The Marathon Clothing. Puma has stayed true to their world and just recently released the “Status Symbol” collection. Sam says the brand has been an excellent partner in allowing Hussle’s estate to stay true to his legacy, adding: “It’s not about selling a lot of units or printing up a lot of t-shirts and going wild. It’s just let’s do it tasteful, let’s come in with the Hussle way.”

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
