DJ Khaled has been known to bring us the biggest club anthems for close to ten years, now. Since the first time he made his grand entrance into the top charts, he has been consistent in delivering and making sure his name remained up there. Khaled is known to be one of the most (if not the most) successful collaborative producer of our generation. The genius in his coordination of celebrities with melodies, hooks, and beats to compose a serenade that will infiltrate damn near every club in the country deserves nothing but the utmost admiration and respect. With the latest release of his album I Changed A Lot, Khaled has blitzed the media outlets and delivered more of his brilliant marketing to gain attention in the direction of his album.
In a recent interview with Hot97’s Ebro In the Morning show, Khaled shook the airwaves due to his passionate rant. Hot97 took it upon themselves to label the video as “The BEST Khaled Interview EVER anywhere!!!” He went on stating that he opposed the conventional methods of dropping an album and challenged radio, as well as the industry as a whole. He boasted about his monster record “They Don’t Love You No More” featuring Jay Z, repeating, “Jigga” twice, with a brief pause and scramble of words in between. His method was to drop the two singles and videos at one time, all with the sole intent of exciting the fans. He strongly expressed his gratitude to his fans that have been there supporting him and his career from the beginning. He acknowledged that his success and his career would be non-existent without them.
Khaled’s charisma is always entertaining to watch. His consistent use of the slogans he has given us over the years continues to remain a big part of his vocabulary. It’s not a surprise for him to end a statement where he is proving a point by randomly dropping, “Another one.” Or he’ll even look over at Rosenberg and hit him with the, “You smart.” It is also never uncommon to glean humor from his random mispronunciation of certain words that he spits out in his speeches.
Khaled’s eighth studio album, I Changed A Lot, is available for purchase now. Most who are familiar with Khaled’s work, know the high caliber of content to expect when tuning into a Khaled album. The star-studded collaborations, a trademark of the former Terror Squad DJ’s work, never let fans down. Khaled stated that he does his best to create a blend of smooth radio-friendly records and hard-edged street anthems on the album to keep the balance.
