Nipsey Hussle Was Hailed as a Hero. But to California Officials, He Was Still a Gangster.

Nipsey Hussle Was Hailed as a Hero. But to California Officials, He Was Still a Gangster. When a gunman rolled up to Nipsey Hussle’s Marathon Clothing store late last month, the first person to be shot was Kerry Lathan, recently released from prison and there to pick up a T-shirt. 

Nipsey Hussle ’ s “ Hussle in the House” is one of the rapper’ s first known singles . DJ Swish’ s production makes for a muted menace, giving YG and his frequent collaborator Nipsey Hussle a perfect platform to flip their figurative birds at the then-presidential candidate.

While Hussle has invested in cryptocurrency in the past, Khaled has received the key to his home city of Miami for all of his work within the local neighborhoods. We'll have to see if the bid goes through, but it' s clear that Nipsey Hussle and DJ Khaled are all about making more history.

"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 Nipsey's children, Emani and Kross," Khaled added, concluding his touching message with a sentiment that has become synonymous with preserving Hussle's legacy and his mission: "The Marathon Continues."

The upcoming song also features John Legend, who tweeted shortly after Hussle was shot about filming the video for the single and how the death left him "utterly stunned."

The new song, "Higher," appears on Khaled's new album, Father of Asahd, which drops on Friday, May 17.
