Buju Banton has a firm fan in a rather unlikely place – DJ Khaled. The charismatic rapper is so taken with Buju’s that he played the Jamaican’s music to his wife every day of her pregnancy. When the day of the birth arrived, Buju was the first person Khaled called.
Now, for the first time, the two legends are uniting in the studio to create music together. Specific details of the project are still under wraps, though it’s looking likely that Buju will feature on at least one of the tracks on Khaled’s forthcoming FATHER OF ASAHD album.
Announcing the collaboration via a stream of Instagram posts, Khaled said:
“I never told anyone this story the day Mama Asahd was giving birth to our son @asahdkhaled , I got on the phone with @bujuofficial and told him I play all your music to my son while he was in Mama Asahd belly . I was in tears on the phone wit him and I ask buju to pray with us while Mama Asahd and GOD was delivering @asahdkhaled to us and world”
