Earlier this week DJ Khaled threw up a moving post dedicated to the memory of Nipsey Hussle (R.I.P) and announced that he and Nip had some work in the chamber dubbed “Higher” that was about to drop and today we finally get our fix.
Fresh off his latest project Father of Asahd, the Eif Rivera visual to “Higher” is sure to give even the hardest of rocks a case of lump throat while others will likely shed a tear as they watch Nipsey showcase the neighborhood he put on his back with hopes and plans of a better tomorrow. John Legend meanwhile rolls through the hood on a mobile piano while singing the chorus to the cut. This could very well be Nipsey’s final music video (who knows what he might have in the stash somewhere) so appreciate what you can and take it all in one final time.
Once you’re finished viewing the highly anticipated visual check out DJ Khaled’s Father of Asahd LP which boasts appearances from basically every hot artist in the game including Jay-Z, Cardi B, Travis Scott, Meek Mill – you’re probably better off trying to name an Billboard chart topping artist that isn’t on this album.
Peep the visuals for “Higher” below and check DJ Khaled’s star studded Father of Asahd LP after the jump.

Not only will the Los Angeles Staples Center be packed for Nipsey Hussle’s memorial on Thursday, but throngs are also expected to line the streets to bid him farewell.
UPDATE: LAPD reportedly thinks someone was trying to commit murder.
As fans are still scrambling to make sense of the tragic loss of Nipsey Hussle, a memorial service has been announced for the beloved West Coast rapper and businessman. In Los Angeles next week, the Staples Center will host the going home service for Hussle, a fitting honor for an artist of his caliber.
Sources with direct knowledge tell us, the service will take place Thursday morning at the 21,000 seat venue. We’re told tickets will be sold for the event through a website. Only ticket holders will gain admission.
Our sources say there was a meeting Wednesday with Nipsey’s family and honchos from Staples. LAPD officials were also present in the meeting to help plan logistics and security for the event.
It’s a massive undertaking to plan such a major event in less than a week. Staging equipment must be rented, and the rental companies have already been contacted. We’ve learned ushers who work Staples have already been asked to reserve the day.
May Nipsey Hussle rest peacefully in paradise.
