DJ Khaled talks making what he calls and “anthem” with Nipsey.
In a recent interview with Associated Press DJ Khaled discussed working with the late Nipsey Hussle on his “Higher” featuring John Legend before Nipsey’s passing.
“I’m a type of guy that where I make music, I like to make records that are just powerful. It doesn’t matter what texture or type of record I make, it’s always powerful. My anthems always stand out. I make sure that I make anthems. When I use the word ‘anthem,’ ‘anthem’ is something that everybody’s going to sing forever. That’s what I make. I’m blessed to be able to be on my eleventh album. To release my eleventh album is a major accomplishment for me.” Khaled says.
He also touched on having the honor of releasing what very well may be Nipsey’s last recorded verse. “It’s definitely a gift from Nipsey to the world I’m blessed to be able to work with Nipsey Hussle. King Nipsey Hussle. God blessed me to work with him. What I love about the record is that he loved it. The record is called “Higher” and the message is beautiful. It’s gospel. It’s special. The Marathon Continues, long live Nip.” Higher is currently the number one song and video on Apple music, watch the full video below:
