In a letter on Instagram, DJ Khaled confirmed he will release the song he recorded with Nipsey Hussle, and will donate all the proceeds to the late rapper’s children.

The producer wrote, “[Nipsey] shared his energy and positivity with me on a video set for a song called ‘Higher.’ After much prayer and reflection; and with the full blessing of the Asghedom family, I am sharing that moment with the world.” He continued, “I, my co-writers, producers and label partners are donating 100% of all our proceeds from ‘Higher’ to Nipsey’s children, Emani and Kross.” Read the full message below.

John Legend was also involved in the song and video, posting a tribute message to Nipsey the day after his murder.

“Higher” will reportedly appear on Dj Khaled’s 11th album, Father of Asahd, which drops tomorrow. The album also features a track with Cardi B.
