Two issues to hearken to

‘God Did’ by DJ Khaled

And one other one.

DJ Khaled is releasing his thirteenth studio album, “God Did,” and the uber-producer sounds extra excited concerning the new venture than his listeners.

Understandably so, since earlier this month he shared on Instagram that Jay-Z shall be one of many featured artists.

One thing to sip on
