DJ Khaled’s Son Basically Stole The Show At This Year’s BET Awards

Ever since DJ Khaled got stranded on that jet ski, chronicling the entire scenario on Snapchat, he’s pretty much won over each and every one of us with his motivational offerings and flippant disregard for 'they.' His newly born son Asahd Khaled obviously shares his father's superstar genes because he kiiinda stole the show at the BET Awards last night.

The 'hardest working baby in the game,' eight-month-old Asahd made his debut (to life, of course) via a Snapchat-documented birth in October. He's since been credited as executive producer on his father's recently released album (so many questions!), has been called a legend by Rihanna and cuddled by Nas (so many feelings!) as well as becoming somewhat of an Instagram celeb in his own right. And so it was with little surprise, perhaps, that he last night joined his producer father on stage at the BET's for a performance of 'I'm The One' alongside the likes of Lil Wayne.


But most importantly... DID YOU SEE his turquoise, custom-made Gucci suit which is potentially the cutest thing of all time? The fact that he was perfectly matched with rapper Gucci Mane in an identical suit is also just sooooo freaking cute.

The rapper posted a photo on Instagram with a caption 'Twins.' Holding Asahd up on the red-carpet, Lion King style, DJ Khaled gushed saying: 'Me and his mommy always keep him around greatness, we always give him joy. We always give him happiness. We always give him love… The way I was raised, my family brought me around what they do, you know what I'm saying? And I'm bringing him out what me and mommy do.' Sooo basically this kid is going to live the coolest life ever.

Some other noteworthy things happened while we were busy gushing at Asahd. Like… that Michelle Obama made a surprise appearance via satellite to award Chance The Rapper the Humanitarian Award as as an acknowledgement of the $2 million funds he has raised and donated for Chicago schools.

The former first lady joined the ceremony via a pre-recorded video where she said: 'Chance is showing our young people that they matter, that they have something inside of them that is worthy of being expressed, and they have so much to contribute to their community and our country.' Previous recipients of the award include Muhammed Ali, Alicia Keys and Wyclef Jean.
