DJ Khaled Donating 100% Proceeds Of ‘Higher’ Single To Nipsey Hussle’s Children
DJ Khaled had very special words concerning late rapper and activist Nipsey Hussle. His message comes just before the highly-anticipated release of their collaboration for the single “Higher.” The song, which also features John Legend, is on DJ Khaled’s latest project, Father of Asahd, that will be released Friday.
Sadly, Hussle was gunned down and killed on March 31, just days after shooting the video for the song.
DJ Khaled said Wednesday,
“Recently, I embarked on a soul-searching journey down a road I never thought I would travel in a million years. It began when a tragedy robbed the world of an enlightened soul, a brother, a father, a partner and my friend, Nipsey Hussle. Just days prior, he shared his energy and positivity with me on a video set for a song called, ‘Higher’. After much prayer and reflection; and with the full blessing of the Asghedom family, Iam sharing that moment with the world.
The very title of the song reminds us that vibrating on a ‘Higher’ level was the essence of Nipsey’s soul. It is in this spirit, of moving forward, of preserving is mission that I, my co-writers, producers and label partners are donating 100% of the proceeds from ‘Higher’ to Nipsey’s children, Emani and Kross. The Marathon Continues.”
He added the caption,
“A gift from my brother Nipsey that we want to share with the world. We miss you and we will forever keep your legacy going. The Marathon Continues. God Bless You.”
Hussle and DJ Khaled saluted one another and shared their experience from filming the video and recording the song before Hussle’s shocking and tragic death.
