On March 31st, 2019, rapper and entrepreneur Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed in front of his Marathon clothing store in his neighborhood in Los Angeles, California. Prior to his untimely death, numerous reports stated that Hussle was making a documentary based on the life of Honduran herbalist doctor, Dr. Sebi, the man who claimed that he had the cure for AIDS. The documentary highlights the 1988 court case where the state of New York sued Dr. Sebi for making unsubstantiated therapeutic claims and ”practicing medicine without a license.”
Unfortunately, Hussle was killed before the documentary was completed and the documentary was left unfinished. Speculations came shortly after Hussle’s death, stating that Hussle became a target for making the documentary and revealing hidden truths about the medical world.
Months after Hussle’s death, Wildin’ Out host Nick Cannon revealed that he would be continuing the production of the documentary, in remembrance of his late friend.
On March 31st, 2020, one year after Hussle’s untimely death, Cannon posted a video via Twitter, sharing the trailer for the new documentary, captioning it “As Promised #TheMarathonContinues 🏁. ”
