Taking to social media with a short visual clip, DJ Khaled teases a new Paris Saint-Germain x Air Jordan 6 collaboration, along with some new apparel. The highly-anticipated collab is set for a July drop - no date confirmed as of yet. Along with the sneaker reveal, Khaled also previews a pair of shorts, and some tees.
Expect more releases between the two brands, as Paris Saint-Germain and Jordan Brand are locked in on a three-year deal. Lifestyle products along with special edition releases of Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 5 silhouettes are in the works.
These Jordan 6’s are available for $225 USD sometime in July.
In addition to a tribute performance by YG, John Legend and DJ Khaled, the late, Nipsey Hussle will also posthumously receive the Humanitarian Award at this year’s BET Awards.
As you all know, Nipsey Hussle was an active member of his community before he passed. His resilient efforts to serve those who were underserved and underrepresented doesn’t go unnoticed. Nipsey provided opportunities, through his various businesses, by employing those who were previously incarcerated.
A tribute performance is also scheduled with YG, John Legend and DJ Khaled leading the way. The trio will perform “Higher,” which was the last song Nipsey did a video for, before his untimely death.
DJ Khaled has been on a roll, releasing seven videos for singles off his newly released, “Father of Asahd.” Last night, he unveiled the eighth and final video for “Weather the Storm.” The Meek Mill and Lil Baby assisted single received a black-and-white video treatment from director, Eif Rivera with some co-directing from Khaled, himself.
The grittiness of the visuals compliment how impactful the message behind the lyrics are - which is a powerful testament to beating the odds. Backed by a church choir, we find Meek Mill in the opening scenes just moments before Lil Baby appears, giving his testimony.
Clad in all black, Meek is spotted with a few gold chains as Lil baby also pairs his ‘fit with a hefty gold pendant.
Dj Khaled’s highly anticipated drop, “Father of Asahd,” arrived last night featuring a single titled, “Higher.” The record includes guest appearances by John Legend, and the late Nipsey Hussle. This was one of Nip’s last recordings, and the video, released yesterday as well, was his final appearance. Set in Inglewood California, the video finds the trio of iconic artists atop a building - which was filmed just dates before Nipsey’s death. The Eif Rivera directed visual is powerful and was rightfully dedicated.
Dressed in an all blue ‘fit, Nipsey reflects on family and faith: “Looking back at my life made my heart race. Dance with the devil and test all faith. I was thinking chess moves but it was God’s grace.”
DJ Khaled took some time in a recent Beats 1 Radio interview to share his thoughts on Nip: “Thank God for me to be able to work with a king like Nipsey Hussle. It’s been hard for me to watch the video, and listen to the song, but also, it’s very beautiful. When you see it, and hear it, you’re going to understand what I’m saying. It’s very beautiful because long live Nipsey Hussle, the Marathon continues.”
In a social media post, John Legend also commented, “Proud to be a part of this inspiring record with @djkhaled and @nipseyhussle. We lost him too soon.”
According to Khaled, all proceeds from “Higher” will benefit Nipsey’s children, Emani and Kross.
Earlier today, DJ Khaled, announced that “Father of Asahd” is set for a May 2019 release! And he’s already claiming it as his “best album to date.” The Hip Hop mogul readies his 11th studio album, promising it to be one with nothing but hits. “I’m a guy that only wants to make hits. When I roll this album out, I’ma let people know, It’s time to get hits again, cause y’all been oversaturated with so much music that you all forgot what hits are,” Khaled boldly states.
Even Epic Records president, Sylvia Rhone, agrees: “Every single track - it’s the best album you’ve ever made,” she told Khaled. As we wait for the epic release, we take a look back at Khaled’s selection of ice throughout his prosperous career.
A frequent guest at Miami’s LIV Nightclub, it was only right that Khaled dedicated on his boldest chains to the popular venue.
There's just no limit as to how many chains you should rock with one outfit. Oh, and don't forget the pinky rings and wrist weight, to match. Looking to impress with a neck full of chains, too? Check out King Ice's collection.
Revered as one of Hip Hop's most illustrious logos and jewelry pieces, here's Khaled with the iconic Roc-A-Fella chain - fully iced out. We're still unsure if it's more iconic than the Death Row Chain.
Khaled repping his home city and his notable catchphrase: We the best!
Honoring his former group, Terror Squad, and friendship with Fat Joe, Khaled occasionally sports this famous Hip Hop logo as well.
Even Baby Asahd, whom Khaled named his new album after, keeps it more icy than most of us.
And let us not forgot the hilarious moment when DJ Khaled pronounces "jewelry" in his live radio interview with Power 105's, The Breakfast Club.
