Behind The Board: DJ Khaled Reflects On His Early Days, Working With Music's Biggest Artists & More
Perennial hit-maker DJ Khaled does it all, and he does it well. From his early days DJ'ing in the garage on vinyl and making beats on his first MPC to an influential A&R, music executive, producer, DJ, and artist (with an impressive 11 albums to his name), the music that has been in him from the very beginning has reached more ears worldwide than you could count.
But it all started for Khaled from a passion for music, one he recalled fondly. "Just being in that garage with my turntables, my reconds, my beat machine and posters all around of my favorite artists for inspiration," he said. "I remember those days, and those days took me to inside the studio. Now I work with all the biggest artists."
DJ Khaled also shared the best advice he's ever received. "God is great. That's the key," he said. "That's the biggest advice I've gotten, and it's real. It keeps me grounded, focused and also... give thanks and have gratitude and love."
The GRAMMY-nominated mult-threat also talks about his artistic vision and how he treats every song as "the one," expecially on his latest album, Father of Asahd, an experience he calls "special" and an album he said he's "very, very proud of."
