Jay-Z is one of many features on DJ Khaled‘s upcoming album, God Did, but rapping is not the only way he contributed to the project. According to the famed producer, Hov selected the cover art, which debuted on social media earlier this week.
“I am the biggest Jay-Z fan, and I actually let him pick my album cover,” Khaled told Billboard, revealing Jay helped with previous album covers, as well. “I always give him like two cover options and see which one he would pick, and I did it again on this album,” he continued.
As displayed on Khaled’s socials, the artwork for God Did features a portrait of him looking up as a tear falls from his eye. The LP itself boasts appearances from Kanye West, Eminem, Lil Wayne, Future, Dr. Dre, Gunna, Takeoff, Quavo and Jay, whose verse Khaled says is good enough to make an album of Hov’s greatest hits.
The Brooklyn rapper reportedly had a huge compliment for Khaled, as well. “After I got done playing it, he pulled me aside and said, ‘Yo this is your best album,'” the Grateful star recalled. “Jay-Z, I love you, and you know that.”
God Did comes out on Friday.
