Exciting announcements coming from Netflix for an upcoming documentary on the late and great Nipsey Hussle. And you know they had to do it right when they pay homage to Nip and his legacy. Oscar-nominated Ava DuVernay is set to produce and direct the film, which reportedly cost the streaming platform 8-figures thanks to an intense bidding war. While there is little info out right now (including a release date), reports are that Nipsey’s estate reached out to Ava directly thanks to her amazing work on the film 13th and the Netflix series When They See Us. This documentary announcement comes almost a year after we lost Nipsey Hussle to a fatal shooting outside his Marathon Clothing store in South Los Angeles.
Stay tuned for more details!
