The producer took to Instagram to make the announcement. He said that he recently has been on a "soul-searching" journey ever since Nipsey Hussle was gunned down.

Khaled said that just days prior to Nipsey Hussle being fatally shot, the "Victory Lap" rapper graced the video set for "Higher" with his "energy and positivity."

"After much prayer and reflection; and with the full blessing of the Asghedom family, I am sharing that moment with the world," DJ Khaled wrote.

"The very title of the song reminds us that vibrating on a 'Higher' level was the essence of Nipsey's soul. It is in this spirit, of moving forward, of preserving his mission that I, my co-writers, producers and label partners are donating 100% of all our proceeds from 'Higher' to Nipsey's children, Emani and Kross. The Marathon Continues."
