DJ Khaled honours rapper Nipsey Hussle's legacy, will donate all proceeds from their song Higher, to his children
DJ Khaled will be donating 100 per cent of the proceeds from Higher, his song with Nipsey Hussle to the children of the late rapper. Khaled, 43, took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce that he will release a single with Hussle called Higher and will donate all proceeds to Hussle's children -- Emani, 10, and Kross, his two-year-old son with actress Lauren London, reports people.com.
"Recently, I embarked on a soul-searching journey down a road I never thought I would travel in a million years. It began when a tragedy robbed the world of an enlightened soul, a brother, a father, a partner and my friend Nipsey Hussle," Khaled said.
Khaled went on to reveal that just days before Nipsey was gunned down in front of his Los Angeles clothing store on March 31, "he shared his energy and positivity with me on a video set for a song called, Higher. He added: "After much prayer and reflection and with the full blessing of the Asghedom family, I am sharing that with the world.
"The very title of the song reminds us that vibrating on a Higher level was the essence of Nipsey's soul. It is in this spirit, of moving forward, of preserving his mission that I, my co-writers, producers and label partners are donating 100 per cent of all of our proceeds from Higher to Nipsey's children, Emani and Kross."
Along with the tweet, Khaled wrote: "A gift from my brother Nipsey we want to share with the world. We miss you and we will forever keep your legacy going."
