A fourth guest artist is Khaled's buddy Buju Banton. The Jamaican singer had just been freed from a seven-year prison sentence in the US after being convicted on drug-related charges when he jumped on "Holy Mountain." Khaled told Vibe
their close friendship led him to collaborating on Father of Asahd's opening and closing tracks.
"Buju is family to me, and when he came back, I went to Jamaica to welcome my brother back home. He met my son and we were just vibing," he recalled. "Then Buju asked me to 'play a chune' and I played him the 'Holy Mountain' beat and Buju finished it in one take."
"Then Buju said, 'Play me another one,'" Khaled continued. "I had this idea for 'Holy Ground,' played it for him and he loved it. The rest is history."
