Two days after DJ Khaled released his music video for "Higher" — featuring the late rapper Nipsey Hussle — he performed a special tribute to his departed friend on Saturday Night Live. He was joined by SZA, who beautifully sang "Just Us," before Meek Mill came on to rap "Weather the Storm." John Legend then appeared while playing the piano and passionately singing "Higher." At the end, he stood alongside DJ Khaled, SZA, and Meek Mill, as well as Lil Wayne, Big Sean, Jeremih, J Balvin, and Lil Baby — who performed with DJ Khaled during his first set. "Long live Nipsey Hussle. The marathon continues," DJ Khaled said to conclude the show. Watch the powerful homage above.
