The marathon continues, DJ Khaled says, announcing on Instagram that his upcoming album will include a track with Nipsey Hussle and that all the money from the song will go to the slain rapper's children.
The track, dubbed "Higher," features John Legend on piano and the hook. It will be on Khaled's 11th album, "Father of Asahd," slated for release Friday.
In his Wednesday Instagram post, the producer and songwriter said the track was part of a "soul-searching journey."
"It began when a tragedy robbed the world of an enlightened soul, a brother, a father, a partner and my friend, Nipsey Hussle," the post said. "Just days prior, he shared his energy and positivity with me on a video set for a song called 'Higher.'" After prayer and reflection, and with Nipsey's family's blessing, he said. "I am sharing that moment with the world."
The co-writers, producers and label partners have agreed to donate the earnings from the track to Kross Ashghedom, Nipsey's son
