DJ Khaled has taken to Instagram days before his album Father of Asahd arrives to announce a forthcoming song featuring the late Nipsey Hussle. It’s called “Higher,” and 100% of proceeds from the track will go to Nipsey’s children.
“The very title of the song reminds us that vibrating on a ‘Higher’ level was the essence of Nipsey’s soul,” Khaled wrote on Instagram. “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.” John Legend also confirmed that he is featured on the new track. “Proud to be a part of this inspiring record with djkhaled and @nipseyhussle,” Legend wrote on Twitter. “We lost him too soon.” Read Khaled’s full statement and Legend’s tweet below.
Nipsey Hussle was shot dead earlier this year. He was 33 years old. Read “Nipsey Hussle’s Legacy Is Bigger Than Rap” on Levels.
