On the “God Did” album artwork, DJ Khaled kept things simple yet emotional. Would it be right to call this album Khaled’s most emotional project? In our opinion, he snapped while creating it. The cover photo for the album features Khaled looking up to the heavens with a tear running down his right eye. It sort of looks like a photo of gratitude, where he acknowledges heaven ‘God’ for everything that has happened in his life. That shot might have you in your feelings staring at it.
