DJ Khaled – Higher ft. Nipsey Hussle, John Legend mp4 video download
The Marathon continues. DJ Khaled’s star-studded album Father of Asahd arrived Thursday night featuring “Higher,” one of Nipsey Hussle’s final recordings.
Along with the inspirational track, which also features John Legend, Khaled has premiered the touching video, which was filmed atop a parking structure in Inglewood, Calif. just days before Nipsey’s death. The Eif Rivera-directed clip, dedicated to the loving memory of Nipsey, features powerful and prophetic words from Nip along with Legend’s gospel-tinged vocals.
Decked out in Nipsey blue, the Crenshaw MC reflects on his family and faith. “Lookin’ back at my life made my heart race,” he raps. “Dance with the devil and test all faith / I was thinkin’ chess moves, but it was God grace.”
For the past few weeks, there have been whispers that DJ Khaled is going to include his Nipsey Hussle collaboration on his new album Father of Asahd.
The two recorded the song a few weeks and shot the video just a few days before the untimely demise of the great Nipsey Hussle on March 31. Khaled later revealed that John Legend was contributing with the chorus of the track and that all proceeds from this particular single will be going towards Nipsey’s children Emani and Kross.
