DJ Khaled and Asahd Khaled

Culture Vulture DJ Khaled dropped his much-hyped single "Top Off" featuring JAY-Z, Future Hendrix, and Beyonce. The track debuted at 6 a.m. Eastern and 3 a.m. on the West Coast. The super producer hyped the track by releasing a cute promo short movie teaser by Ivan Berrios on Thursday night. The teaser stars Khaled and his precocious toddler Asahd Khaled sitting in a drop top Maybach.

"Top Off" is off Khaled's 11th studio album, Father of Asahd (his son is listed as executive producer on all of his father's albums).

Future, who usually brings it when he guest raps, is annoying on the hook: "I see the top off the Maybach / I see the top off"/ I see the po-po behind me / I ain't gon' stop".

Surprisingly, yodeling Beyonce's verse slays both her husband and Future's verses. I rewound the audio to hear her spit again ("I'm the only lady, yet still the realest nigga in the room").

I gave this track 3 roses for Beyonce's verse alone.

"Top Off" is currently available on iTunes and Spotify.

    LOVE IT...

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Asahd is such a cutie, looks just like his mother...

    I like DJ Khalid making his son EP on all of his albums, I havent seen another musician do that.

  • tintin

    DJ Khaled's son cam actually walk!!! I thought with the way they had that boy up in their hand every minute he was never gonna learn to walk on his own

  • Diva_woman

    Not gonna lie, I like every part except Beyonce’s verse. She just don’t fit to me trying to rap. But the rest of the song will go off in the club or the car. Love it

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I like DJ Kahlid and his little cute son ?. . I like Future too ... But I'm not supporting this. .. I don't fugg with Jay or Bey in no way... Not even pressing play ..... That little one is always too cute and sharb ..?

  • Bonsai

    We all get it that you absolutely love your kid, but dang.

  • Peace

    Why put your infant son on the cover of an explicit parental advisory album. Let the baby be a baby. He got time to inherit his dad business. He doing the most with that. Looks desperate and tacky.

  • Tiff J

    I don't know how Khalid will deal if they ever have another kid. LOL He puts SO MUCH love into little Asahd, how will he have any love leftover for the second kid? LOL

  • Tiff J

    I THINK Nas did it with his daughter.... I think.... could be wrong... Too lazy to Goggle, so I'll say I'm right. LOL

  • Tiff J

    So, if I own a Maybach, my kid doesn't have to be i a car seat? lol

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    CB did too.. . Royalty ?

  • Kim’s Original Face

    me too Ima take yalls word for it!

  • Yardgirl

    Asahd is so freaking adorable!! ? Khalid loves his son and I can’t say a bad thing about that!!???

  • LolaMob

    This song is awful! ??????This mainstream hip hop irks me sometimes ....How many mfz in the hood can relate to owning a Maybach?? F a Maybach give me a Cadillac ...a big Long old clean one at that!! These richcoons selling out left and right ....I like real classic hip hop ...typeshit u can feel and bounce too...that RNS..this bs rt here is for white suburban kids that think their black!??? and Beyonce wtf u tryin to do ?O u a gangsta now huh? ??...I like that first 2sexonds of her verse which makes the song entirely. After that ???and we know jay wrote that too.

  • tintin

    Hate autotune...and future should have been eliminated

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    Shidd, I am not mad at any man over showing madd love to his seed.....We need more fathers like him representing fatherhood in a positive light. I don't know ANY man personally who is unapologetic about showing the world how much his seed means to him like Dj K.....We need to see more of this, especially in our communities.....Much respect coming from here.......

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I guess I just don’t like DJ Khaled

  • 1BlueStar

    Haven't listened, but if it ain't better than 'Shining' then I don't want to hear it. 'Shining' is my shiiiiit!

  • Cannelle

    Ha ha. Some parents actually do that. I have a family member who was the second in line and you could totally tell the parents ran out of interest and energy because they spent it all on the first. The oldest kid has like 7 photo albums of only her, and the second kid (who isn't that much younger) has none, just a few scattered photos here and there. LMAO. they are adults now.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    So DJ Khaled puts a Parental Advisory notice on the cover, for explicit content.... but he has his young child sitting there beside him up front.

    And I guess he doesnt see the irony in that.

  • Cannelle

    I was thinking the same.

  • sunni_daze

    Well that's a smart move making that baby EP on everything, he'll ne straight. But why is Future on this, I swear I can't take his mumbling ass and the nonsense he talks about.

  • Kemi

    Me too! He overdo it... might be a cool guy tho

  • Darkandlovely617?

    RNS is my alarm. Dude I been seeing heard it ( it was the first time I stayed at his place a week night)
    He just ?

    I was like ?????

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    I heard as much as I could take of this on the way to work this morning. I'm a Jay-Z fan but he dumbed himself down for this one. I couldn't take the mumbled chorus, Jay's dummy rap, never even made it to the Beyonce part... Just sad

    3 Roses are 2.5 too many! lol

  • starbright9449

    Track was fire, Future sounded a bit hoarse and didn't like how Beyonce sang at the beginning but she did well.

  • SweetTEE

    I'm also wondering if he is really proud to be a parent or advertising the child. At this point, it's becoming questionable.

  • bashi

    Hardest working baby in the industry

  • datATLboi

    mmmhmm so everything DJ K touches ISNT gold...I don't like this bop but hey that's my Opinion. You can't just throw J and B on a track and call it a hit.

  • Ny MaGee

    I know I'm in the minority with my opinion, as, for some reason, black folks love this dude and his kid. Meanwhile, both annoy me. I'm already over this legacy Khaled is trying to create.

  • Ny MaGee


  • MsPam

    I agree, Khaled is that fat kid in school that tries to do too much but is annoying!

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Beyonce killed it, her and Jay. I'm so ready for Beyonce to come back. None of these other women doing shit. I like how she said, "the only female still the realest nigga in the room." I also like how she said, " to party with the queen ima make em sign a disclosure ".

  • DroneRivers

    You're generous as hell with 3 roses! This song is awful. What is this even considered? Trap hop? Rap? I'll just call it crap, because it's not hip hop. This new annoying sound of the moment with the ADHD repetitive chants and annoying auto-tune is just garbage. This is what we get when we make trash like Bodak Yellow a "hit".

    The singer had the hottest verse on the song. Y'all should be ashamed. And Future sounds like a malfunctioning microwave.

  • bemetoo

    All the queens bulldagers and gays will love beyondfakes verse

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. Nothing wrong with showing love for your kid, but DJ Khaled definitely overdoes it in my opinion.
    He's like a kid who got a cool new toy and cant stop showing it off to all his buddies.

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    Excuse me????? I am a straight feminine woman. Not all her fans are LGBT.

  • Solstice

    Mine too!! ?

  • imright

    this is an extremely trash song !!! made my ears HURT !!! ? & imma fan of all musicians involved !!! its a NO from me Dawg !!! ?????

  • Dowoop

    You are not the only one.

  • Kimberly King

    Uh.... it was okay. Bey should leave the trap songs to the QUEEN OF ALL QUEENS.... Robyn Rihanna Fenty.

    However, I do like it when Bey talks her sh*t! That tired ass humble Virgo act is getting sooooooo old.

  • Quitedeliteful

    yodeling Beyonce

  • Quitedeliteful

    Three stars was really generous. Maybe if I listen again it will start to grow on me...

  • SandraRose

    Fast forward to Beyonce's part. The rest of the track is garbage.

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Marlika

    I’m so sick of this fat greasy culture vulture!! I would never support anything he does or the dumb black artist that continue to work with him!?

  • Skin Deep Beauty


  • Vonn

    I'm tired of that portly DJ. He is worse than Diddles. Talks all over the songs. Blows air horns all over the songs. We know It's you...we can hear you breathing.

  • Mister Fantastic


  • About Face

    Sandra rose praises Beyonce??? God works in mysterious ways. (Or has Blue Ivy threatened Sandra?)

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Thank you

  • bemetoo

    Oh and the beehive

  • Vegas1989

    LOL...And always shouting out, "WE THE BEST"!!!!!....LOL

  • Hugga Bunch

    It might've worked with a different hook. Maybe in the future they'll get it right. Nope for me as well.

  • Vegas1989

    I thought the song was Kodak Yellow talking about that old camera back in the day that evrrbody had....LOL

  • Topaz

    Future is probably on the track because Jay just trying to make up for dissing Future about the parenting situation with Ciara. Jay was wrong for bringing up Future's kid on the 4:44 album.

  • 1BlueStar

    Did anyone hear the shade Beyonce supposedly threw at Tiffany Haddish in this song?? I know, I know...I should just listen to it for myself.

  • sunni_daze

    Na, this a Khaled track. This all Khaled and he messed up imo putting Future on this. Jay just told the truth. Another man is playing football with his kid and after how he dogged Ciara, he deserved it.

  • Topaz

    Jay should have stayed out of Future's family drama because we all know Beyonce should leave Jay ASAP for cheating on her before and throughout the marriage with all kinds of women, especially white. In the near future, we will see Bey getting her 2.0 Tina Turner on without Jay. She'll be with some other millionaire man that's kinder and emotionally available that will be raising Jay's kids. Bey gonna get tired just like Ciara did of living with a cheating egotistical man's shenanigans.

  • sunni_daze

    If you don't want people in your business, don't post your business on the internet. All's fair after that, now its a public forum.

  • Trace da Ace

    YESSS!!!!! I hate it...cant jam to the song or nothing with all that loud shit going on!

  • Liah

    Lia love the kids...Thats all I got!

  • Browneyes

    To party with the queen you have to sign a non disclosure. Who was that aimed at?

  • TheWildChild

    I didn't wake up for this ???....back to my repeat jam...?Theme Song" by my Future-Ex-Bae Jadakiss ?

  • PERIOD!!

    Beyonce is a NOTHING because if she was she would NOT be trying so hard to always stay relevant, I don't care if her and Jayz are worth a billion apiece, they are still out here trying to stay on top and relevant with all these BS stories....Beyonce, Solange and Tina ain't shit......Where is Tina's husband or is she making him pay back what Matthew did to her no talented ass.....JUST SAYIN

  • KayCeiSoul

    The way I just hollered at those 3 roses!!? LMAOOOOO!!
    The shade continues, and I love it.
    The end.

  • kennedy220

    is she.? because she was releasing songs that aren't even radio friendly....she hasn't cared about having a radio hit since single ladies...

  • Banjo :o)

    maybe its just me but i dont like the song at all and I feel like mainstream radio is going to play it to death to try and force me to listen and for it to grow on me :-( but yeah its a no for me dawg
