Here’s What DJ Khaled Said About J.I.D’s Latest Album

DJ Khaled recently gave props to fellow artist J.I.D, calling his latest project The Forever Story a “beautiful album”.

DJ Khaled Goes Out Of His Way To Show J.I.D Love

The pair were in attendance at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards, which took place at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on August 29th. While J.I.D was on the red carpet with Yasiin Bey talking about his song “Stars,” Khaled swooped in to give the Dreamville artist his flowers.

“Congratulations on your album,” Khaled said as he dapped up J.I.D.

“Likewise,” J.I.D responded. “You beat me.”

“No it’s not about that,” Khaled interjected. “It’s not about that. You have a beautiful album congratulations. Keep going, don’t stop I’m a fan.”

Just as DJ Khaled was walking away, J.I.D wasted no time shooting his shot, asking the God Did producer “to get on the next one,” to which Khaled seemed enthusiastic about.

“His family, his whole team. My brothers. I love you brother keep going alright?” Khaled said before heading into the venue.

“Khaled tol me he loves the album and JID DID on the red carpet..lol” J.I.D tweeted later that evening.

Later That Night

Later in the evening J.I.D took to the stage to perform his songs “Dance Now” and “Surround Sound” which have both been certified gold on August 29th by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

His latest project The Forever Story dropped on August 26th and featured guest appearances from Lil Durk, Lil Wayne, Ari Lennox, 21 Savage, Yasiin Bey, Johnta Austin, EarthGang, Kenny Mason and more.

“Appreciate the love I been receiving the last few days, this album is very important! Thank you if you took time to listen,” J.I.D tweeted on August 28.

Despite all of the hype surrounding The Forever Story, initial reactions to the project were overshadowed by Khaled’s 13th studio album which featured a legendary verse from JAY-Z.

Backing Up The Hype

“The rumors are true,” Khaled said of the verse to Complex’s Speedy Mormon. “A lot of rumors are not true, but these are true. I’m a Jay fan, you’re a Jay fan? So everybody has their favorite verse of Jay. I’ll let y’all decide that. I’m telling you, if there was a greatest hits of JAY-Z verses, it’s on there. That I’ll tell you, for a fact. The rumors are true, that’s for a fact.”

Though his recent project is not even a week old, J.I.D told Complex that he’s already brainstorming about what’s next and that his next project is likely to be a Gangsta Grillz tape with DJ Drama.

“Me and [DJ] Drama are really gonna do it right,” he said. “I’m talkin’ about on other n-ggas beats. We’re going to do a DiCaprio 3.”
