DJ Khaled Covers Special Edition of XXL Magazine
XXL linked up with Khaled at his $21.8 million mansion in Miami to discuss the star-studded opus he created with 29 of his famous friends, a majority of them being hip-hop heavyweights.
On Father of Asahd, Khaled is once again out to prove he’s got power to pull the greats and make magic. "This is my 11th album so I’m making sure that I’m evolving," the hitmaker tells XXL. "But at the same time, I’m changing the game. I’ve been watching the game. I felt like a lot of good music came out but only a handful of the great shit [has come out]. So, with Father of Asahd, everybody, I mean everybody will have to go back in the studio and analyze what they are doing and analyze how they are going to give it to the world."
The new album features Jay-Z and Beyoncé joining forces with Future for "Top Off," the late great Nipsey Hussle rapping alongside John Legend on "Higher," Cardi B and 21 Savage teaming up once more for "Wish Wish," Lil Wayne making two grand appearances on "Jealous" with Big Sean and Chris Brown, and on "Freak N You" with Gunna, plus Post Malone and Travis Scott on "Celebrate" and much more, all highlighted in XXL's DJ Khaled special issue. There's something for everyone here.
Along with his famous friends featured on the LP, Khaled has shot eight videos to drop in quick succession following its release. The man who knows the major keys to success is playing no games with this rollout.
