The 2020 Grammys Awards Ceremony is this Sunday (1/26) at the Staples Center in LA (and airing live on CBS at 8 PM ET), and they’ve just announced a very special performance for it: a tribute to the late Nipsey Hussle (who’s up for a couple nominations this year).

The performance will feature frequent Nipsey collaborator YG, Meek Mill, Roddy Ricch (whose Nipsey collab “Racks in the Middle” is up for Best Rap Performance, and who’s been making headlines for going #1 on the Billboard chart with his very organic hit “The Box” and beating out Justin Bieber, who tried and failed to game the system with his new single “Yummy”), Kirk Franklin, DJ Khaled, and John Legend (the latter two of whom collaborated with Nipsey on “Higher,” which is up for Best Rap/Sung Performance).

GRAMMY Awards executive producer Ken Ehrlich said, “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.”

Other Grammy performers include Tyler the Creator, Rosalía, Billie Eilish, Lizzo, Ariana Grande, Run-DMC (joining Aerosmith during their career-spanning medley), and more.
