Father of Asahd by DJ Khaled
DJ Khaled is all over entertainment news today. Among the most renowned DJs today is DJ Khaled. He has launched his 11th studio album with an album title, Father of Asahd. This album is yet another exhibit of his extensive Rolodex. Beyoncé, Cardi B, Meek Mill and SZA all have performances in the said Album. In the album is also “Higher,” the very first official track music from Nipsey Hussle launched post humorously since his passed away in March. Profits from the album will go to the children of the late rapper as announced by DJ Khaled.
“Lookin’ back at my life make my heart race / Dance with the devil and test our faith,” raps Nipsey above suitably awesome, production filled with string and piano background by Khaled. The chorus of the song delivered by by Legend is also great. “They’d rather see me down, put my soul in the fire / But we keep goin’ higher, higher,” Legend sings.
The track music “Higher” with a video accompaniment featuring Nipsey Hussle, is a record of a performer arriving at grips along with his fatality very quickly. It was directed by Eif Rivera. He used a visual in the form of a love letter addressed to the hometown of Nipsey at Crenshaw. Khaled and Nipsey pose at the fassade of a simple blue house while John Legend delivers a musical sermon standing on a grand piano while driving through a street lined with palm tree.
