The American musician of Palestinian descent Khaled bin Abdul Khaled who performs under the pseudonym Dj Khaled was born in 1975 in New Orleans. The singer was simply fascinated by hip-hop, which came from American rhythm and blues. It is worth mentioning that Dj Khaled managed to establish a reputation of a talented MC, excellent producer and composer. Actually, these are not all the interests of Dj Khaled: he is also fond of playing vinyl discs and performing at various radio shows. Well, first of all he got his popularity due to the studio albums. And it goes without saying that recognition is absolutely well deserved.
Dj Khaled was involved into the hip-hop when he was fourteen, but as he stated he never planned to perform by himself. The artist was more fascinated by producing activities, but everything was changed when he tried to write music and create beats for the very first time. Gradually Dj Khaled was preparing material for the debut solo album. That long play was titled Listennn... the Album and it saw the light in 2006. It was critically acclaimed, while lovers of hip-hop enjoyed its powerful sound. Among the producers of Listennn... the Album were such famous musicians as Kanye West, Diaz Brothers and many others. Of course, Dj Khaled also took part in producing his debut record.
A year later Dj Khaled's discography was enlarged by a not less interesting studio attempt called We the Best (2007). It made a full way to the second place in a chart, which means that listeners’ expectations were completely satisfied. I'm From the Ghetto, Before the Solution and other rememberable tracks helped the musician to strengthen his position in the world of hip-hop. Meanwhile the fans were waiting for the fresh long plays from Dj Khaled and his colleagues from the industry. Actually, they did not have to wait for a long time, because in 2008 the rapper presented his new creation, which had been titled We Global (2008). And again Dj Khaled’s record appeared in the top of Billboard chart. Well, such kind of constancy is quite illustrative indeed.
The artist’s fourth album titled Victory saw the light in 2010 and it definitely took a notable place in Dj Khaled’s discography. Traditionally powerful long play was recorded with the help of the rapper’s friends, and again that collaboration brought amazing and extremely harmonious results. It seems that the musicians understand each other just perfectly, and of course that is a good basis to get the success. Thus, in 2011 the rapper pleased his fans with his new long play We the Best Forever, which immediately got to the very top of a hip-hop chart. Sure thing that this is a great sign of Dj Khaled’s skills being improved and mastered every single year. Believe it or not, but nowadays the hip-hop is stronger than ever. And it does not matter if you know the peculiarities of that genre or not, but there is no doubt that Dj Khaled and his colleagues will become nice guides to that musical direction.
