DJ Khaled Spent $5 Million On ‘Father Of Asahd’ Why He Is Suing Billboard
DJ Khaled is angry, and his album budget may explain why he is suing Billboard.
The Artist reportedly spent $5 million on his new album, Father Of Asahd, hence why he is so angry that he missed out on the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart.
In contrast, Tyler The Creator produced his entire album himself, which means that he spent significantly less to create his new album IGOR.
Also, he barely promoted his album, and still yet he landed the number one spot in the debut week.
DJ Khaled is more of a producer/disc jockey than a rapper, hence why his album carries a much bigger production budget.
He has to pay the artists and producers on the album and Father of Asahd has a massive
guest list with big names like JAY-Z, Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, John Legend, Nas, Nipsey Hussle, Big Sean, and more.
According to Variety, Khaled and his label Epic Records shelled out $5 million for the project which paid for the production and marketing.
