DJ Khaled is donating "100 per cent" of the proceeds from his new single 'Higher' which features late rapper Nipsey Hussle to Nipsey's children.
Khaled wants to share with the world the "energy and positivity" Nipsey - who was just 33 - brought to the set that day, and he has been given the "full blessing" of his late friend's family to share the "moment" they shared together.
The 'No Brainer' hitmaker has also announced that all money made from 'Higher' will go to Nipsey’s two-year-old son Kross - whom he had with partner Lauren London - and his 10-year-old daughter Emani, from a previous relationship.
In a statement issued on his social media profiles, Khaled announced that he recently "embarked on a soul-searching journey down a road he never thought he would travel in a million years."
Nipsey Hussle was making the music video for the track with the 'Racks In The Middle' star and John Legend, who also features on the song, days before he was shot and killed outside his Marathon clothing store in Los Angeles on March 31.
‘Higher’ is featured on Khaled’s album ‘Father of ‘Asahd’, which is being released on Friday (tomorrow!)
