DJ Khaled has the knack for putting together some of the greatest collaborations that hip hop has to offer over the last decade. His latest album, “Father of Asad”, released recently offers what has been expected of Khaled…. more pairings of today’s best talent mixed with legends of the culture.
The first single from the release, “Higher”, is a collaboration between John Legend and the late Nipsey Hussle. Filmed in Los Angeles, this is said to be the last music video that Nipsey appeared in before his untimely demise in March. #themarathoncontiunes #pressplay

Kerry Lathan had just come from prison when he was shot on March 31st, 2019. He was standing next to Nipsey Hussle, who was killed as they stood in front of Hussle’s Marathon Clothing Store in the Crenshaw district of Los Angeles. Lathan was arrested and has been in county jail since the shooting due to his parole prohibiting him from being around known gang members (It is widely known that Nipsey was affiliated with the Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips). However, the Department of Corrections has dropped the case and Lathan has been released. #PRESSPLAY
