Following Nipsey Hussle‘s tragic death nearly two months ago, DJ Khaled has shared the rapper’s final music video for their joint record, “Higher.” The single, which is featured on DJ Khaled’s recently released Father of Asahd album, also features John Legend.
Coming in at nearly three-and-a-half-minutes the clip opens with an “In Loving Memory of Nipsey Hussle” title card which is then followed by visuals of Hussle stepping out in an all-blue ensemble. After Legend opens the track with his chorus, Hussle begins rapping about his grandmother and his time spent around the neighborhoods of Los Angeles.
He then of course turns to his girlfriend and family. “Los Angeles love, kinda of like Hussle and Boog,” Nipsey raps of his girlfriend Lauren London. “Mani turned ten, Kross turned two,” Nipsey continues in reference to the couple’s son and his daughter from a previous relationship. Finally the visuals end with a tribute to Hussle, “Rest in Paradise Ermias ‘Nipsey Hussle’ Asghedom.” Check it out above.
As stated previously by Khaled himself, 100% of the proceeds from this record will go towards Nipsey’s children Emani and Kross.
