DJ Khaled may not be a psychic, but his intuition is certainly in check after he reveals that he totally saw his Grammy nomination coming. He leaves no room for skepticism either. Khaled shared a text message exchange between himself and Nipsey Hussle about their song "Higher." They worked on the song together with 2019's Sexiest Man Alive, John Legend.

The late rapper Nipsey Hussle received 3 Grammy Nominations. In addition to "Higher," he was nominated for best rap performance and best rap song for "Racks in the Middle."
