The 2020 Grammy Award have been one of great reflection, as various artists and public figures that we’ve lost recently have received tributes.

One of the artists commemorated tonight was the late Eritrean-American rapper, Nipsey Hussle who was killed in March of last year in his hometown of Los Angeles. His tribute featured performances from artists like John LegendMeek Mill, DJ Khaled, Kirk Franklin, as well as fellow LA rappers YG and Roddy Rich.

The tribute opened with a heartfelt performance from Meek Mill.

Later, during a rendition of their collaboration “Higher,” DJ Khaled and John Legend brought out a group of dancers dressed in traditional zurias and other Eritrean attire—a tribute to the late rapper’s unique heritage.

“I’m half American and half Eritrean—as much as I am a black person from America, I am a black person from Africa too,” 

Nipsey once said in an interview.
