Notably known for shutting down the mid-year season with his mega hit releases, DJ Khaled did not hold back this year as he recently unveiled his star-studded 11th studio album, ‘Father of Asahd’.The track list features Justin Bieber, The Carters Cardi B, Post Malone and Travis Scott among others. Here are top five tracks off ‘Father of Asahd’ you should check out.
This has to be the most awaited track from the album more so from the hip hop community worldwide after Nipsey’s demise. ‘Higher’ provokes a more emotional approach especially with Nipsey’s verse, ‘I was thinkin’ chess moves, but it was God’s grace’. As for John Legend, he was the perfect vocalist for this track hands down!
‘No Brainer’, the first single off ‘Father of Asahd’ brought forth a party-like mood –especially with Chance the Rapper’s verse. The track peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard hot 100 –lasting nine weeks on the chart- and No. 1 on the Rhythmic Songs chart.
No RnB single speaks volumes if Chris Brown is not involved. The ‘Jealous Video’ Extended version sees Brown accept Khaled’s bet on getting 100 more features if he loses. Lil Wayne on the other hand is a legend that Khaled couldn’t let slip by without two features on his album with Big Sean’s verse here delivering the much needed punch to the track.
Buju Banton ultimately features on ‘Father of Asahd’ for that reggae vibe as he speaks on maintaining strength and moving forward despite difficulties.
For the love and appreciation of the hip hop culture, Big Sean gives thanks to fans –and DJ Khaled -for the support he’s received in his career. What also caught many by surprise is his referencing to Ariana Grande’s single, rapping, ‘Plus I gotta thank my exes on some ‘thank u, next’ shit.And all the old times that gave me new perspectives.’
