It was for a song called “Higher,” which will be on Khaled’s forthcoming album “Father of Asahd,” and TMZ released behind-the-scenes footage of the video on Thursday. In it, you can see Legend playing a grand piano, Hussle rapping and Khaled dancing next to him.
In fact, the Miami-based DJ posted a photo of Hussle on Wednesday and revealed that he’ll donate the proceeds from “Higher” to the rapper’s children Emani and Kross Asghedom. Khaled also said that he got the OK from Hussle’s family to release the video.
“Recently I embarked on a soul-searching journey down a road I never thought I would travel in a million years,” he wrote. “It began when a tragedy robbed the world of an enlightened soul, a brother, a father, a partner and my friend Nipsey Hussle.”
“Just days prior, he shared his energy and positivity with me on a video set for a song called “Higher.” After much prayer and reflection, and with the full blessing of the Asghedom family, I am sharing that moment with the world … I, my co-writers, producers and label partners are donating 100% of our proceeds from ‘Higher’ to Nipsey’s children, Emani and Kross.”
The “Higher” video will be released on Friday, May 17.
