You can really tell DJ Khaled enjoys being a father. He brings his four-month-old son with him to press conferences, he’s always putting him in Instagram posts and he even made him the executive producer for his newest album, Grateful.
During a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the “Shining” performer detailed the ways in which his son, whose name is Asahd, contributes to his forthcoming album.
“He’s in the studio listening to songs with me going over the business part of it, [seeing if] the vocals are right, if the beats are right, if the energy’s right, everything he’s a part of,” Khaled told Jimmy Kimmel after the show host asked if Asahd knows of his role as an executive producer.
Khaled went on to discuss how his song contributed to the creation of “Shining,” Khaled’s song with Jay Z and Beyoncé. To make his point, Khaled performed a series of head-nods to imitate the motions his son apparently gives when he’s approving or disapproving of a song.
Eventually Kimmel asked Khaled what it meant to him when Asahd poops during a studio session, and, predictably, the Major Key artist’s response was hilarious. “Well, believe it or not, the poops and the throw-ups are the super-blessings,” Khaled explained, adding that Asahd threw-up on him while he was mixed “Shining.”
He continued, “I tell him, ‘Whatever he want to do,’ that’s my son.” You can check out the rest of Khaled’s interview with Kimmel below.
