“I worked my whole life for this…🔑” -DJ Khaled on his Epic Records partnership.
On the heels of what has been a year of massive mainstream saturation…DJ Khaled called us to give us the good news that he’s brought his We The Best label over to Epic Records and will be releasing his 9th solo album, Major Key, there as well. So as both label head and artist, Khaled will be partnering with Epic’ chief LA Reid, no stranger to cross-pollination of fame himself. It’s a reunion of sorts, since LA Reid gave Khaled his first major distribution deal for We The Best while heading Def Jam in 2008. As Khaled and I discussed in the cover story of SneakerNews Volume Three, We The Best is celebrating it’s 10 year anniversary…at the same time as Khaled is reveling in being Snapchat’s 6-million-follower man, and becoming a fixture on everything from Beats1 (We The Best radio show) to Jimmy Kimmel Live. As for the leak about an upcoming collabo featuring Jay-Z and Future? Khaled promises that’s just one of the big treats he has in store.
