    Father of Asahd isn’t perfect, and the celebratory baller vibe can get a little tiresome at times. However, this time round, whenever Khaled shouts “Another one!”, his catchphrase, it actually feels merited. DJ Khaled’s true talent lies in bringing people together.

    DJ Khaled knows how to produce a hit with any number of artists, but his 2019 effort could have used some more growth like Asahd.

    Although instant, maximum commercial impact is no doubt the primary objective, the album does come across as more considered than the average Khaled LP.

    While old friends and freeloaders litter “Father of Asadh” like empty pony bottles, new collaborators and fresh faces actually do lift the proceedings and save the day.

    The formula’s limitations are evident on Father of Asahd: There are plenty of voices but no clear message or intention.

    Not only are the song structures disappointingly formulaic but the samples picked for the project rank as some of the laziest in recent Hip Hop Years.

    As quality control at Khaled HQ dips slightly yet noticeably, it might be time for him to receive more undeserved blame than undeserved credit. ... With no commercially undeniable moments like the Rihanna showcase “Wild Thoughts” (from Khaled’s Grateful), Father of Asahd grooves along like an adequate 54-minute stretch of hip-hop/R&B radio (with no commercials, at least).

    "Another One", "We the Best Music", I'm sick of always saying that in every **** song, it almost destroyed me "Wild Thoughts" because of their"Another One", "We the Best Music", I'm sick of always saying that in every **** song, it almost destroyed me "Wild Thoughts" because of their stupidities, I have with this 3 albums that I've heard from DJ Khaled, but this is the first time that any song attracts me or is fairly good, if at all "Wish Wish" with Cardi B and 21 savage, but the rest is a disaster, so many important artists with whom he collaborates and each song makes it a piece of **** or Post Malone, SZA, Travis Scott, John Legend, Chris Brown, Big Sean, JAY Z and Beyoncé manage to have a solid song, each song has too many rhythms, they change in such a disorderly way that it is sometimes heard complete. As it is possible that an album that has so many rhythms, rhythmic or danceable sounds, is so boring, the worst of all is that it is almost 1 hour of the same. This is so far the worst album this year, just above the "WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?" by Billie Eilish and "Death Race for Love" by Juice WRLD Expand

    The music isn't a complete garbage, Just Us is ok, but the fact that he freaked out for not getting #1 on BB200 is RIDICULOUS.

    This DJ Khaled album is NOT GOOD. Full-length DJ Khaled albums continue to be in their own tier of artistic bankruptcy.
