In May, both the Crips and Nipsey Hussle's brother Samiel “Blacc Sam” Asghedom filed a trademark application for Nip's catchphrase "the marathon continues" setting up a bizarre legal fight

The Crips, which is LLC as well as a street gang, have now backed off of their trademark application and have apologized to Nip's family.

There will absolutely be no trademark legal battle between their organization and Blacc Sam, brother of the late Nipsey Hussle," the organization told The Blast. "[The Crips] respectively vows to support the wishes of Lauren London and the Asghedom family... We realize that our actions may have been offensive and we have reached out to his family, respectively Nip's sister, Samantha Smith."

 William King Hollis, who's the Crip's corporate communications director, went on to explain that they had been working with Nipsey on a project that required a trademark on the slogan before he was killed.

"We are deeply sorry for any disruptions and melee that the trademark acquisition may have caused to his family, friends and fans," Hollis continued.
