DJ Khaled Drops Visual To Nipsey Hussle’s “Higher” & ‘Father of Asahd’ LP

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.

Man Shot With Nipsey Hussle Released From Jail [Video]

While the masses still grieve for Nipsey Hussle some good news has come from this tragedy. The gentleman who was also hit in the shooting has been given his freedom back.

As reported by Page Six Kerry Lathan has been released from a detention center in California on Saturday, April 20.
The Los Angle native witnessed the assassination of the “Racks In The Middle” rapper on March 31 where he too took a bullet to his back. Upon his release from the hospital, he was promptly put into police custody. As a felon who served 25 years for murder being with a known gang member was in direct violation of his parole terms.

Luckily the legal system was able to apply common sense to his situation. His lawyer Lauren Noriega claimed that the 56-year-old was at the scene by chance. “He wasn’t there to propose any business to Nipsey. He had no idea that Nipsey would be there” Noriega explained. Previous reports alleged Nipsey was meeting him to give him free clothes.

Lathan suffered a stroke while in custody and still has the bullet lodged in his back. His representative said he started crying when was told he would be let go.

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.

TMZ reports:

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.

Source: Instagram / @EleeshaLee

Y’all better stop playing with Nipsey Hussle. The Crenshaw rapper blessed some guy with the hand of God after a parking dispute at the BET Awards in Los Angeles. 

Reports TMZ:

Nipsey Hussle unleashed a vicious slap on a man’s face in the middle of an argument over where he could park his whip … and it’s all captured on video.

Check it out, the L.A. rapper’s in the street outside the venue for Sunday night’s ‘BET Awards’ when he gets into with another guy. We’re told the issue was whether or not Nipsey could move some cones and drive through a restricted area.

Tempers flare, and after the guy smacks a traffic cone out of the hand of Nipsey’s bodyguard … Hussle unloads a hard right slap.

A law officer immediately grabs Nipsey to keep the fight from escalating … and then he gets back in his car.

Did y’all hear the sound of that slap? Rumor is the slapee was a BET employee—but Nipsey still performed.

Nipsey wanted all the smoke bruh. See multiple angles below.

Also, needless to say the slap’s echos are reverberating through Twitter.

Nipsey Hussle Moves 60 Copies Of New Album At $1,000

Nipsey Hussle stays hustling and his Proud2Pay movement has becoming a staple for the rapper with him moving about 60 copies of his new album at $ 1,000 per copy.

The rapper released his latest MailBox Money and gave fans the option to download it for free, get it on iTunes or pay $ 1,000 for a physical copy with several bonuses.

Nipsey said that he was surprised to see so many people paying that much money for the album.

“It surprises me. As much as I believe in it. Every time I get a transaction, I get a text on my phone, and I’ve been hitting them back,” Nip told The Guardian. “The feedback and the connection I have with these people help me understand the psychology of the person paying $ 1,000 for some songs that, realistically, you could download for free.

The highest human act is to inspire. Money is a tool – it’s the means, not the end. [Inspiration is] the metric that dictates whether or not a project is a success. It’s more realistic than trying to aim for radio play, or trying to satisfy an A&R, or the other gatekeepers on these platforms. I don’t even know how to create with those things in mind. But if you tell me the goal is to inspire? That makes my job a lot easier.”

These 60 people will get free access to Nipsey’s next album, which will be called Victory Lap.
