“One of the joys in my life is sitting down with musicians and just jamming out with them. It’s just so inspiring to be around talented musicians and seeing them do their thing. It’s also a lot of fun, so is definitely something I’d like to get more into, but in what capacity I’m not sure. I’m into an interesting point in my life where I could go in many different directions, so it’s an exciting time and yes, I do hope to do more music.”

Ahad shared that he grew up listening to a lot of classic rock. He enjoyed listening to Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, and similar bands. “My father is the person who got me listening to classic rock.”

“I used to listen to a lot of rap and one day my father put on a record. It was Led Zeppelin, the one that had black dog on the cover. It’s the first rock song I heard and was hooked, so I’ve got my dad to thank for that. Recently, I listened to a lot of house music and fun disco stuff. I kind of avoid songs with lyrics because music tends to put me in a certain mood. When there’s lyrics, it influences where that mood goes, so I like to keep my music a little neutral.”

The actor also shared that he has a playlist for the characters he plays. “Because it brings you into that zone or mood and keeps you there,” he shared, stating that he “gave away one of his tricks.”
