DJ Khaled Honors Son Asahd in Heartfelt Letter

  /  03.07.2018

After announcing the name of his newest album, Father of Asahd, DJ Khaled has penned a heartwarming open letter honoring his one-year-old son.

The accompanying video features adorable footage of the young icon dancing, smiling, and playing, while his proud dad provides narration.

“Here’s a major key,” he says in the video. “Our children give us the ultimate name, the greatest title, the highest honor. My son has given me my new name. Father of Asahd. Today, that’s what I’m naming my new album.”

He went on to explain why he’s so thankful for his son. “We’re all grateful for those that came before us and know that I am. I got everything from my mother and father,” he added. “Now, I’m grateful for the ones that’s coming after me. My son Asahd is my legacy, my love, my lion. That’s what Asahd means: lion.”

“He’s what gives me hope and purpose,” added Khaled. “He’s my inspiration and motivation. When Asahd smiles at me, it’s God smiling at me. Love did that. The power of love did that.”

Last week, Khaled released the lead single off his 11th album Father of Asahd, “Top Off,” featuring JAY-Z, Beyoncé, and Future.
