Higher is one of the tracks off star producer DJ Khaled‘s recently released 11th studio album “Father of Asahd,” and one track that will make you aspire higher and probably take you higher, up from the dusty of mediocrity and insignificance – if you let it.
The track features John Legend and the late Nipsey Hussle. The rapper was gunned down in front of his clothing store on 31 March, effectively ending an illustrious career. Much of the world is yet to recover from the tragedy.
Electing to release a collaborative work with Nipsey Hussle just after his death is a commendable decision on DJ Khaled‘s part. Here, if you please, Nipsey Hussle is forever memorialized.
“Higher” is Nipsey Hussle‘s number in a sense, as it takes one through the streets of his life and family. Nipsey Hussle, who had risen from drug-addled streets to the plush planes American rap, does the guiding. And he does that effectively.
Ohio-born John Legendary gave a splendid assist on the track, amplifying once again the verity he is Legend not just in name but in the beauty of his art.
