I really can’t even lie… I fucks with DJ Khaled.
Like on some real shit, the man is the shit. Not only is he business savvy, but he puts on a damn good show. In every sense. I start my days, most of them, with his snapchat story.
Sidebar: I’m a loyal one. I still haven’t been won over by the Insta Side.
That is truly someone who works and lives what he speaks – unapologetically. He’s very well adjusted to this 21st century life. He’s tech savvy. He’s got deals with Beats and Jordan. He’s practically the king of social media. If you won’t concede that, he’s certainly mastered the medium as a means of personal branding.
He looks good.
He seems to be enjoying life.
The relationship between he and his son makes me like infants just a little more. That is the happiest baby I’ve ever seen in my entire life.
Asahd just handles the cameras like a G. I mean it’s almost as if Khaled’s constant reinforcement that his son is a don, a mogul, a legend, god’s gift to earth, or whatever else he says to empower that baby.
An empire is on the horizon, I feel.
One of RussellSimmons/RickRubin/DefJam or Puffy/BadBoy or JayZ/RocNation proportions. This man is smart. This man is focused. This man is talented. And say what you want, he’s talented. He certainly has an ear for quality shit. He recently posted a video of just him speaking into the camera saying he’d had some offers from major record companies to become president of those respective labels. Of course, a video on the gram is a minute so he didn’t go into much detail but…
B I T C H.
Y’all remember that: “We taking over!”
Like that song is damn near a decade old and I still know all the lyrics and rap along every single time I hear it.
But I don’t mean to dick ride or anything. I listened to Grateful and aside from the singles and the song with Chance the Rapper (of course), I really could do without a second listen.
But “To the Max” goes off. I think it’s going to be my summer song.
“Wild Thoughts” goes off. I love it.
He could’ve missed me with “I’m the One.” And that’s okay. I don’t have to like all his songs to know that Khaled is a bad mutha shut-yo-mouth and that he’s quickly on his way to the stratosphere.
All that said, all praise to DJ Khaled and the young don, Asahd. They’re the tops. I only wish good things for them. I’m truly inspired by them and y’know… they’re really two of the most refreshing people in the world right now.
And hell… give this man his roses NOW. He’s really a treasure.
