DJ Khaled is set to release his 14th studio album, God Did, on Friday, 26 August. Uniquely, the DJ listed Allah as one of the executive producers on his new album. The Musician even said that Allah himself was in the studio to help him put together the album.
After sharing the vibrant cover art, the American DJ revealed a track list full of big Hip Hop and Rap names, such as Drake, JAY-Z, Eminem, Lil Wayne, Future, Travis Scott, Kanye West, 21 Savage, and Kodak Blake. , SZA, Lil Baby, even the late Juice WRLD.
In addition to the star-studded list of 18 songs, attention also falls on the album’s credits, in which the DJ not only lists himself and his two sons Asahd Tuck Khaled and Aalam Tuck Khaled, but he also mentions Allah, which certainly leaves fans in confusion and disbelieve.
DJ Khaled is known to describe himself as a devout Muslim often. In an interview with Larry King, the 46-year-old Musician said that rap is life as well as being a Muslim for him. He said he was born Muslim, and his family raised him as a Muslim.
However, it seems that the DJ’s intention to mention Allah’s name on his new album as a tribute to God has caused controversy on social media. Many argue that it is inappropriate to include the name Allah in the credits of an album that features themes around sex and drugs.
Twitter users condemn DJ Khaled for putting Allah as executive producer on an album where singers or rappers talk about sex, drugs, and killing people is a total mess.
Another Twitter user sarcastically said that Allah as the executive producer on Album God Did, should have earned the royalties on time.
This is not the first time DJ Khaled has mentioned Allah on one of his albums. Previously, he also mentioned Allah as one of the executive producers of his album Father of Ashad and the 2021 record “Khaled Khaled.”
At that time, the DJ received a lot of adverse reactions, with many accusing him of using the name of God to sell his album.
