DJ Khaleds latest star-studded scream-fest, Father of Asahd, has arrived, and with it comes the video for the lead single, Higher.

Directed by Eif Rivera, the song features John Legend and self-proclaimed Slauson Boy Nipsey Hussle musing over a soulful production crafted by StreetRunner, Tarik Azzouz and DJ Khaled himself.

The video was shot in March, mere days before Nipsey was gunned down in front of his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles.

Proud to be a part of this inspiring record with @djkhaled and @nipseyhussle, Legend tweeted on Wednesday. We lost him too soon.

Prior to the release of the single, DJ Khaled announced that all proceeds from the song will go to Nipseys children, Emani and Kross.

The very title of the song reminds us that vibrating on a Higher level was the essence of Nipseys soul, DJ Khaled said in a statement. It is in this spirit, of moving forward, of preserving his mission that I, my co-writers, producers and label partners are donating 100% of all our proceeds from Higher to Nipseys children, Emani and Kross.

Its dope that DJ Khaled went to such great lengths to hold down Nipseys family and serves as a beautiful gesture that ensures the marathon continues.
