Roommates, the 2020 Grammy Awards are just days away and there are several things to look forward to on music’s biggest night—and the highly-anticipated tribute to Nipsey Hussle is one of them. The line-up of performers for his tribute has just been announced and it’s a good mix of gospel, hip hop and R&B.
When it was first announced that Nipsey Hussle would receive a special tribute at this year’s Grammy Awards many immediately started to speculate who would be apart of it. Well, the wait is over because the official line-up has been revealed. Kirk Franklin, DJ Khaled, John Legend, Meek Mill, Roddy Ricch and YG are all set for the tribute performance.
The tribute is also special because Nipsey is nominated for three Grammys at this year’s ceremony. He received posthumous nominations in the categories of, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for “Racks In The Middle” and Best Rap/Sung Performance for his collab with DJ Khaled, “Higher.”
In an official statement about the tribute, Grammy Awards executive producer, Ken Ehrlich, said this:
“An activist, entrepreneur and rapper, Nipsey Hussle had a lasting impact on not just his community, but also the culture at large. There is no denying the influence he had and his legacy will be felt for generations to come. We are honored to bring together this amazing group of artists to celebrate Nipsey’s life and pay tribute to his many contributions to music. It’s sure to be a memorable performance.”
You can catch the Grammys live on Sunday, January 26th beginning at 8PM on CBS.
