Hands down, DJ Khaled’s (real name Khaled Mohamed Khaled) brand and business continues to explode.
The Snapchat King, who is also a producer, artist and is now being managed by Jay Z, took his talents to the Ellen Show, introducing folk to just exactly who he is. He explained:
I’m a music mogul, I’m a producer, I’m a DJ, I’m an executive, I’m a CEO, and I’m an artist. I am like the hip-hop Quincy Jones, you know what I’m saying? But, you know, I’m a CEO too. You know, I’m an entrepreneur. I’m a young mogul. I’m blessed.
And if you know anything about Khaled, then you know he’s constantly warning folk about staying away from ‘they’. When asked by Ellen exactly what he meant by this phrase that he uses non-stop, he explains:
‘They’ is the person who told you you would never have The EllenShow. ‘They’ is the person that doesn’t believe in you, that (says) that you won’t succeed. You know, they never wanted me on The EllenShow and, look at me, I’m on The EllenShow! And this (is) the number one show. Mama, I made it!
