DJ Khaled Honors Nipsey Hussle in New 'Higher' Music Video Featuring the Late Rapper & John Legend


The music video dropped Thursday night, and paid tribute to the slain artist at start of the powerful video with a title card that read, "In Loving Memory of Nipsey Hussle," and a second tribute at the end of the song that read, "Rest in Paradise."


The video comes one day after Khaled announced that every cent from his upcoming single will be going to Hussle's two children -- 10-year-old daughter, Emani, and 2-year-old son, Kross.


"Recently, I embarked on a soul-searching journey down a road I never thought I would travel in a million years," the artist and producer wrote in a statement on Instagram Wednesday afternoon, which included an image of Hussle, who was shot and killed in March outside his clothing store in Los Angeles at the age of 33.


"It began when a tragedy robbed the world of an enlightened soul, a brother, a father, a partner and my friend, Nipsey Hussle," Khaled explained.


"After much prayer and reflection; and with the full blessing of the Asghedom family, I am sharing that moment with the world," he continued.


"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," Khaled added, concluding his touching message with a sentiment that has become synonymous with preserving Hussle's legacy and his mission: "The Marathon Continues."
