The Marathon continues.

Nipsey Hussle will receive a star-studded salute at the 62nd annual Grammy Awards. The Recording Academy has officially announced an all-star tribute to the late rapper during the telecast next weekend.

Meek Mill, YG, Roddy Ricch, DJ Khaled, John Legend, and Kirk Franklin will all take the stage to pay posthumous honor to the three-time Grammy nominee.

“An activist, entrepreneur and rapper, Nipsey Hussle had a lasting impact on not just his community, but also the culture at large,” said Ken Ehrlich, GRAMMY Awards executive producer. “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.”

Nipsey, who was nominated for Best Rap Album for Victory Lap last year, is nominated for three awards at this year’s ceremony including Best Rap Performance (“Racks in the Middle”), Best Rap/Sung Collaboration (“Higher”), and Best Rap Song (“Racks in the Middle”).

The Grammy tribute comes less than a year after the 33-year-old rapper was shot and killed outside his Marathon Clothing store on March 31.

Hosted by Alicia Keys, the Grammy Awards will be broadcast live Sunday, Jan. 26, at 8 p.m. EST on CBS. Other performers include Ariana Grande, Tyler, The Creator, Camila Cabello, Billie Eilish, H.E.R., Lizzo, Rosalía, Run-D.M.C, Charlie Wilson, and more.
