Khaled, donning a sweatshirt with Nipsey's likeness, was joined onstage by Meek Mill and John Legend to perform the song, "Higher", at the end of Khaled's medley of hits. Hussle, who was born Ermias Davidson Asghedom, died on March 31st in South Central Los Angeles outside his store The Marathon Clothing. Considering the content of Nipsey's work on the song, which has a Tupac-like eeriness in its foresightedness, it's understandable that Khaled chose to introduce it to the world with great care.

The track is featured on Khaled's recently released album "Father of Asahd". InsideEdition.com's Mara Montalbano has more. Among the 15 tracks on the album (read Variety's review) is the song "No Brainer", featuring Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper and Quavo, which was a Top 10 hit following its release in summer 2018.

Niki Lauda, Austrian Formula 1 legend, dies at 70
He is also an airline entrepreneur and recently agreed to sell his controlling stake in Laudamotion to Ryanair. Following his first Formula One world title in 1975, Lauda won two more times in 1977 and 1984.

"Higher", with an accompanying video that features Nipsey Hussle, is a prescient artifact of an artist coming to grips with his mortality all too soon. "It began when a tragedy robbed the world of an enlightened soul, a brother, a father, a partner and my friend, Nipsey Hussle".

The Marathon Continues."Nipsey Hussle is survived by his longtime girlfriend Lauren London (left) and two kids, Kross and Emani". Proceeds from the single, Khaled announced this week, will go directly to the late rapper's children. The alleged gunman, identified as 29-year-old Eric Holder, is charged with murder.
