Nipsey Hussle, posthumously nominated for three awards at the 2020 Grammys, was the subject of a touching tribute performance at the 2020 Grammys. John Legend, DJ Khaled, Meek Mill, Roddy Ricch, YG, and Kirk Franklin performed in honor of the fallen rapper, who was killed last year in California.
With the exception of Kirk Franklin, all of the artists on stage were one-time collaborators of Hussle's. Legend and Khaled teamed up with the rapper for "Higher;" Meek Mill featured on "Angel" from Hussle's Victory Lap; Roddy Ricch appeared on Racks In The Middle (nominated for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance at the 2020 Grammys), and; YG was a constant musical companion of Nipsey's.
