Just days before Father of Asahd arrives, DJ Khaled has taken to social media to announce his new track “Higher” which features the late rapper Nipsey Hussle.

Khaled also noted in the post that 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Nipsey Hussle’s children; his son Kross, 2, whom he shared with girlfriend Lauren London and daughter Emani, 10, from a previous relationship. “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,” Khaled began.

The hit maker went on to reveal that just days before Nipsey was gunned down in front of his Los Angeles clothing store on March 31, “he shared his energy and positivity with me on a video set for a song called, ‘Higher.’” Khaled continued, “After much prayer and reflection; and with the full blessing of the Asghedom family, I am sharing that with the world.” Read the full tribute below.

Nipsey was shot multiple times outside of his Marathon Clothing store located in Hyde Park, Los Angeles. He was only 33-years-old.

“Higher” is expected to be a track off of Father of Asahd, which arrives this Friday.
