Nipsey Hussle's Final Music Video 'Higher' Is Released by DJ Khaled
They shot the video just days before the rapper was gunned down in Los Angeles.
Nipsey Hussle's final music video was released two months after the rapper was tragically gunned down in Los Angeles.
“Higher" is from DJ Khaled's new album and features John Legend and Nipsey with Los Angeles as the video's backdrop.
“After much prayer and reflection; and with the full blessing of the Asghedom family, I am sharing that with the world,” Khaled said in a statement about the video.
The video was reportedly shot just days before Nipsey was killed.
It opens with the text that reads: “In loving memory of Nipsey Hussle.”
In the song, Nipsey raps about everything from his relationship to his children.
Legend took to Twitter once the video dropped, writing, “Proud to be a part of this inspiring record with djkhaled and @nipseyhussle. We lost him too soon..."
The proceeds from the video will go to Nipsey’s children.
“The very title of the song reminds us that vibrating on a ‘Higher’ level was the essence of Nipsey’s soul," DJ Khaled said in his statement.
Nipsey, 33, died from gunshot wounds to the head and the torso when Eric Holder, 29, allegedly shot him outside of the Marathon Clothing store on March 31. Two other people were injured in the shooting.
Holder has been charged with murder and has pleaded not guilty.
