DJ Khaled Readies ‘Father of Asahd’ for May

DJ Khaled’s “best album to date” is coming this May.

The hip-hop mogul has announced a May release for his 11th studio album Father of Asahd. Taking to social media, Khaled made the big announcement by sharing a series of videos of him speaking to Epic Records executives in a meeting.

“I wanna unload all of it,” he said. “I’ma be like anyone act up, I let it all go. I wanna fuck the game up.”

Khaled, who has called the album his “best body of work up to date,” promises that it will feature nothing but hits. “I’m a guy that only wants to make hits,” he explained. “When I roll this album out, I’ma let people know, ‘It’s time to get hits again, ’cause y’all been oversaturated with so much music that y’all forgot what hits are.'”

Epic president Sylvia Rhone agreed. “Every single track…It’s the best album you’ve ever made,” she said.

Named after his two-year-old son, Father of Asahd follows 2017’s Grateful, and is expected to feature blockbuster collaborations with Chris Brown, Travis Scott, Big Sean, Post Malone, and more.

Just last month, Khaled and Cardi B went in front of the lens to shoot an “epic music movie” for an unnamed song off the project.

UPDATE: DJ Khaled has revealed a May 17 release date for Father of Asahd.

In a trailer announcing the date, Diddy praises the album as Khaled’s best work to date. “You made your Chronic,” he says. “You made your Life After Death. You made your No Way Out. You made your Illmatic. You made your best body of work. Congratulations, my brother.”
