A lineup featuring Kirk Franklin, DJ Khaled, John Legend, Meek Mill, Roddy Ricch and YG will pay tribute to the late Nipsey Hussle at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards.
The artists will perform during the Sunday ceremony, which airs at 8 p.m. on CBS and will be hosted again by Alicia Keys.
Grammy Awards executive producer Ken Ehrlich said the decision was made to posthumously honor Hussle because as “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.”
Hussle, who was shot to death in March, is nominated for best rap performance and best rap song ("Racks In The Middle") and best rap/sung performance ("Higher").
