“It’s an incredible honor for SpringHill to have a part in sharing Nipsey’s story and legacy with the world,” James said. “He used his gift to give back to his community and lived what it means to inspire, empower, and uplift others along the way.”
LBJ added, “His words, his ambition, and his actions stick with me to this day as he continues to inspire myself, our company, and people everywhere.”
The series does not yet have a title or a release date.
