“They 🚷 said I would never do SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE …so I’m doing SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE !!” said Khaled. “Not only am I doing Saturday Night Live … I’m doing the season finale MAY 18!! #FANLUV IM UP TO SOMETHING! I got some BIG surprises!”
A recent promotion for the Father of Asahd album has revealed that it may be the Miami native’s best body of work. In a post-listening session video, Diddy can be heard telling Khaled that he has found his classic, comparing it to being his Ready to Die and other notable Hip-Hop classics.
The new album is executive produced by DJ Khaled’s son Asahd Khaled, which he spoke to The Source regarding the monumental moment the release will be.
“I always tell you this: every album is my most important album, and I think that’s how I should always go into every album. That’s why I’m at 11 albums. The title got me very inspired,” Khaled shared. “I just came off Grateful, one of my biggest albums, but ‘Father of Asahd’ is something that I’m really taking my time and putting together. When my son is beside me growing and all this stuff, all it’s doing is inspiring [me].”
You can see the announcement for SNL below and be sure to set a reminder to tune on May 18. Father of Asahd arrives on May 17.
Father of Asahd is going to be amazing, so dont forget to check back for it when it drops.
