It’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally here. More than a year after DJ Khaled announced Father of Asahd in the beginning of 2018, the new album dropped at midnight on Friday (May 17).
The Epic Records-released project has no shortage of star-studded collaborations, including headlining talent J Balvin, Cardi B, Meek Mill, Post Malone, Travis Scott, Bryston Tiller, and 2 Chainz. A special stand out on the album, “Higher,” features John Legend and Nipsey Hussle, who shot the video for the tune just days before his tragic death in March.
“We on this rooftop. Man, the energy was so beautiful,” Khaled mentioned of the accompanying music video. “It’s been hard for me to watch the video, and listen to the song, but also, it’s very beautiful. When you see it, and hear it, you’re going to understand what I’m saying. It’s very beautiful because long live Nipsey Hussle. The Marathon Continues.” Listen to the whole Father of Asahd album below.
