There’s no denying who is the center of the universe in DJ Khaled‘s star-studded orbit. Rising above his father’s high-profile friends and A-list collaborators, one-year-old Asahd (Arabic for “lion”) is the central, driving force in his famous father’s professional and personal pursuits. Flexing their relationship across both the ‘Gram and his Major Key-studded Snapchat updates, the We The Best Music mogul clearly has no hesitation in showing his millions of followers just how fiercely he adores his son. From worshipping Asahd’s business acumen to ensuring that the toddler secures the bag with multiple executive producer credits, DJ Khaled and his gilded offspring have more than cemented their status as an iconic duo, both in social media and IRL.
Whether it’s snapshots from inside their multi-million dollar mansion/home studio or stills from their luxurious family vacations, wherever the “No Brainer” hitmaker is, it’s safe to assume that Asahd isn’t far behind. “He’s my son, but when I look at him, he’s my prophet, too. I believe me and Asahd was put on this world to show what love is,” revealed the record label executive, about his next-level relationship with his son.
Unable to stem the ever-flowing flood of praise directed at his child with longtime partner Nicole Tuck, Khaled rarely misses an opportunity to count the blessings tied to his biggest inspiration. “My whole life I thought our parents give us our names…but here’s a major key. Our children give us the ultimate name, the greatest title, the highest honor. My son has given me my new name, father of Asahd,” said Khaled, name-dropping his soon-to-be-released album of the same title and the followup to 2017’s Grateful.
Apparently, a giggle and a drool-heavy smile from Asahd is all the motivation DJ Khaled needs to keep cranking out hits. “Now I have the energy that I love and need!! this a special energy my son gives me !!! @asahdkhaled I love you!! #GRATEFUL 🙏🏽🔑🌺🦁🙏🏽,” wrote Khaled alongside a short video clip of him greeting his son.
Unsurprisingly, DJ Khaled dedicates all of his professional pursuits to achieving one main goal: spending more time with his son. “@asahdkhaled I promise you I’m working so hard so I can jus be wit u every single day !! I love you so much !!! There no words that can explain my love for you but I have a solution for that I can show you better than I can tell you !! Me and mommy we got you forever !!! Thank you for being my son !! @asahdkhaled! #GRATEFUL 🙏🏽🔑🌺🦁🙏🏽,” wrote Khaled.
Tell The World
While flying private (of course) with his famous father, Asahd only has one word to say on camera, and it’s “Dada.”
DJ Khaled and Asahd aren’t just father and son…they’re best friends.
The two Khaled boys hitting the red carpet at the 2018 Grammy Awards is a major vibe.
Work Together, Play Together
Thankfully, DJ Khaled and Asahd don’t just bond in the studio…they do enjoy some usual father/son playtime as well.
Happy Father‘s Day
Naturally, Asahd did the most to celebrate his mogul daddy on Father’s Day 2018.
According to Khaled, there’s nothing like soaking up the sun (with his son) in his own private pool.
Never taking his relationship with Asahd for granted, DJ Khaled is always ready to drop a knee and give praise to the most high.
Father Of Asahd
Keeping on track for his next album, DJ Khaled turns to his phone background (which is a picture of Asahd, of course) for a source of constant inspiration.
