DJ Khaled found himself a trending Twitter topic on Saturday night (January 30) after he shared a clip of his 4-year-old son Asahd flossing some exclusive Nike Jordan drip. While that’s not necessarily out of the norm, it’s where he did that had people laughing.
In the viral clip, Ashad is munching on a snack when his famous father asks him, “What kind of sneakers you got on today?” to which Asahd answers, “Michael Jordans.” Khaled continues, “These are very, very, very exclusive. Come over here in the sun. This is unbelievable. Look at these. He got the Father of Asahd 3s on and he got his own sweats. Let me see that t-shirt. Wow [laughs]. What does it say?”
Asahd replies, “All I do it win,” to which Khaled says, “That’s right boy! Keep doing your thing. Oh wait, let me get the back of your shoes. Wow! Alright guys, do good in school.”
With that, Asahd walks back into a classroom where several students — and a teacher — are waiting for him.
According to Stadium Goods, the DJ Khaled x Air Jordan 3 “Father of Asahd” is an extremely rare friends and family edition of the Jordan 3 designed by and made exclusively for DJ Khaled. After debuting the red Jordan 3 “We the Best” in 2017, the multi-platinum artist followed up his exclusive colorway with two more versions in 2018 in blue to celebrate the release of his album Father of Asahd.
The shoe features a blue suede construction with a reflective mudguard at the base of the upper and the classic elephant print paneling in grey. The words “We the Best” is found on the left heel tab opposite the traditional Jumpman logo on the right, while a silver rubber outsole rounds out the look. A select number of pairs were given away via an online raffle to promote the project. They are currently going for $10,300 and up.
Although Khaled’s little show-and-tell appears to be disruptive, the 45-year-old deserves some credit. In December 2020, PEOPLE magazine reported Khaled turned his guesthouse into a COVID-19 safe learning pod for his son and some of his classmates. Even so, the Twitter reactions were hilarious.
