DJ Khaled to Donate Proceeds From Nipsey Hussle Collab to Slain Rapper’s Children

Rap producer, performer and social-media star DJ Khaled announced Wednesday that he, along with his co-writers and co-producers, have agreed to donate 100% of their future earnings for forthcoming collaboration “Higher” to Nipsey Hussle’s children.

Just days before the Los Angeles rapper, born Ermias Davidson Asghedom, was shot on March 31, Hussle filmed a music video in Inglewood with the DJ for “Higher,” which is expected to be part of Khaled’s new album, “Father of Asahd” (out this Friday), and which also features John Legend.

“After much prayer and reflection, and with the full blessing of the Asghedom family, I am sharing that moment with the world,” Khaled said in a statement Tuesday, regarding the song’s imminent release.

“The very title of the song reminds us that vibrating on a ‘Higher’ level was the essence of Nipsey’s soul,” he continued, before adding, “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 Nispey’s children, Emani and Kross.”
