Bittersweet as it is to finally have it, DJ Khaled has just dropped his new album Father of Asahd, and along with it comes the video for “Higher,” his collaboration with John Legend and, in his final music video appearance, Nipsey Hussle.
The Eif Rivera-directed clip finds the trio together on the roof with a piano and lavish cars is what was certainly an expensive shoot, one fitting of the celebratory tone for a project Khaled has been touting as his masterpiece. It’s hard to take one’s eyes off of Nip, seeing him here loving his life mere days before his death is both haunting and somewhat comforting knowing how at peace he was with his legacy and still so full of passion for his art.
Khaled has stated all proceeds from “Higher” will be donated to Nipsey’s children: ten-year-old Emani and two-year-old Kross.
