DJ Khaled dropped his album Father of Asahd Friday which features pretty much every major artist in the industry but perhaps the most impactful song on the album is his collaboration with John Legend and the late Nipsey Hussle.
The song, entitled “Higher”, gives fans one more reminder of the impact Nipsey had on his community and Hip-Hop.
The visual for the song was partially filmed on top of a parking structure in Inglewood, California, just days before Nipsey Hussle was fatally shot outside his Los Angeles clothing store in March.
In a Twitter post, DJ Khaled said he has been on a “soul-searching journey” since Nipsey Hussle was murdered and with “the full blessing of the Asghedom family” he decided to share the track.
“The very title of the song reminds us that vibrating on a ‘Higher’ level was the essence of Nipsey’s soul,” DJ Khaled wrote on Twitter. “It is in this spirit, of moving forward, of preserving his mission that I, my co-writers, producers and label partners are donating 100% of all our proceeds from ‘Higher’ to Nipsey’s children, Emani and Kross.”
