DJ Khaled has been one of the more visible artists on social media during the COVID-19 pandemic. From haircut (or lack thereof) updates to having to stop a woman thinking his Instagram Live was similar to Tory Lanez, the We The Best hitmaker has maintained as much social distancing as possible.
When it came time to finally be part of the world again for a root canal, Khaled didn’t hesitate to be extra precautious, showing up to his dentist in a full Hazmat suit on Friday (June 19). He documented the entire process on Instagram.
“Play wit it if you want I got kids I don’t play games First day out the crib in 3 and half months,” he wrote.
In a series of follow-up photos, Khaled explained why his root canal was so urgent during the pandemic.
“My first day out the crib and I had get my root canal taken out,” he wrote. “My root canal that I had gave me pain over 15 years. I want to thank The office BLUM-Nico Oral Surgery Associates Dr. Nico and team who was excellent! Taking out the root canal very grateful for your help. Thank u Dr. Mereos Dr. Kopf for the recommendation team work.”
Khaled did promise that his follow-up to 2019’s Father of Asahd was on the way and the 44-year-old father of two has made it clear that regardless of what’s going on with the pandemic, being safe is what comes first to him.
