In the ten years since DJ Khaled emerged as a mainstream star, he has grown, tremendously. When he was doing radio in Miami, many thought he was on top of the world. Those days saw DJ Khaled running around with Fat Joe during the “Lean Back” era.
DJ Khaled launched his career and began making anthems with Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, Drake, and many others. In between time, he started We The Best and signed Ace Hood. Later anthems began including Nas, Chris Brown, Future, Big Sean, and August Alsina.
The year of 2016 saw DJ Khaled took the world over, beginning with him signing with Jay Z’s Roc Nation. Later, Khaled joined Apple Music with his own radio show and then moved We The Best to Epic Records and Kent Jones emerged. DJ Khaled has now opened his own Champs Sports in Miami, where Diddy, Jadakiss, N.O.R.E., and many others came through and he has since celebrated with Nas, Ja Rule, Trina, and Dave East.
