DJ Khaled

Khaled Mohammed Khaled (; Arabic: خالد محمد خالد; born November 26, 1975), known professionally as DJ Khaled, is an American disc jockey, record producer, and record executive. Originally a Miami-based radio hype man, Khaled has become known for his extensive curation of high-profile music industry artists and producers to record singles or albums. His distinctions are his booming voice presence, "motivational" abstractions, and numerous catchphrases. While his musical contribution is often questioned, Khaled's role has been described as "organization, direction, [and] promotion".Khaled was born in New Orleans to Palestinian immigrant parents. He first gained recognition as a radio host in the 1990s for the radio station 99 Jamz, and translated his popularity by working with Fat Joe's hip hop collective Terror Squad as a DJ for their live performances. After gaining production credits on the group's material, Khaled independently released his debut album, Listennn... the Album in 2006. His second album, We the Best (2007) spawned the hit single "I'm So Hood" (featuring T-Pain, Trick Daddy, Rick Ross and Plies). His two subsequent releases — We Global (2008) and Victory (2010) — charted within the top ten of the Billboard 200, with the latter containing the triple platinum-certified single "All I Do Is Win" (featuring T-Pain, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg and Rick Ross).
