DJ Khaled has shared a video of Dr. Dre and Kanye West working on the single “Use This Gospel” from his new album God Did.
On Saturday (August 27), the Miami-based super producer posted the clip for his 30.3 million Instagram followers to see. Khaled himself appeared blown away by his opportunity to work alongside the two Hip Hop juggernauts. He also included a special shout-out to Eminem who’s featured on the song.

“Use This Gospel” is a Dr. Dre remix of Kanye’s original song of the same name. The track was initially expected to arrive on the revamp of Ye’s 2019 album Jesus Is King, but the project never came to fruition. Speaking to Apple Music in a recent interview, Khaled explained how the whole thing came together.
“I called Kanye one day and I said, ‘ I got an idea,’” he recalled. “[…] It’s 8 in the morning, he just showed up to my house. I didn’t even know he was coming. He tells the chef to make some eggs with ketchup, and he had a drink. We go to my studio. I play him music. He plays me music. We both inspiring each other. He plays me an incredible album that he did with one of my idols, Dr. Dre. He played it from top to bottom for me. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. We had a great get together at the crib, he leaves.
“That was a year and a half ago. I said I got an idea I remember you playing me this Dr. Dre, Eminem, Kanye record and y’all were talking about God. Y’all were speaking that gospel. I said that would be beautiful if we could put that on God Did. And yeah, hits back and says, ‘I love the idea.’ Ye don’t love no idea.”
After getting the proper clearance from Dr. Dre and Eminem, Khaled was able to move forward with the song. God Did arrived on Friday (August 26) with additional features from Drake, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, JAY-Z, John Legend, Future, Lil Baby, Lil Durk, 21 Savage, Roddy Ricch, Quavo, Takeoff, Don Toliver, Travis Scott, Gunna, Latto, City Girls, the late Juice WRLD, Jadakiss and more.
According to HitsDailyDouble, the project is expected to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with over 105,000 total album-equivalent units sold in its first week.
