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