Days before Nipsey Hussle‘s untimely death he filmed a music video for the DJ Khaled song, ‘Higher’ (found aboard his new album ‘Father of Asahd’).
With John Legend on the hook, the now almost haunting visual – filmed in Inglewood, California – sees the trio show love to the ‘Golden State’ with classic hydraulic-bouncing cars and messages of peace and unity in the LA streets.
Taking to social media earlier this week, Khaled remembered Hussle fondly in a statement:
“The very title of the song reminds us that vibrating on a ‘Higher’ level was the essence of Nipsey’s soul,” Khaled wrote in his statement posted on social media. “It is in this spirit, of moving forward, of preserving his mission that I, my co-writers, producers and label partners are donating 100 percent of all our proceeds from ‘Higher’ to [Nipsey’s] children, Emani and Kross.”
Khaled also confirmed he received “full blessing” from the late rap star’s family. See the finished product inside:
