DJ Khaled plans to honor his late friend Nipsey Hussle in a major way. Last night (May 15), Khaled revealed that all of the proceeds from his unreleased track “Higher,” will be donated to the late rapper’s children.
In a post uploaded to Instagram, Khaled revealed that he was working with Nipsey and John Legend on the “Higher” video shoot, just days before his untimely passing. “Just days prior, he shared his energy and positivity with me on a video set for a song called, ‘Higher,'” he wrote. “After much prayer and reflection; and with the full blessing of the Asghedom family, I am sharing that moment with the world.”
Diving deeper into his post, Khaled explains that 100% of the song’s proceeds will be donated to Nipsey’s two children, Emani and Kross. “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.”
Luckily, fans will not have to wait long to hear “Higher.” Khaled’s upcoming album, Father of Asahd, releases at midnight. Keeping everything top secret, Khaled has yet to release a record from the forthcoming LP. Earlier this week, the We The Best CEO unveiled the cover art for his 11th-studio album, which will serve as the follow-up to Khaled’s 2017 album Grateful.
