Additionally, in another clip, he says to the 47-year-old rapper, ‘You’re not the best, you’re the worst.’
Besides that, he shared that he set aside Khaled’s son Asahd’s picture as he believes, ‘babies are innocent.’
Sizzla also went ahead to call Asahd his ‘godchild.’
He reportedly said, ‘Rastafari! Put this in my studio.’
