Early Life and Education

DJ Khaled was raised with brother in the US by Palestinian parents, who migrated just before he was born; his brother is Alec Ledd (Alla Khaled), a famous actor. Both of his parents were musicians who played Arabic music, so he was surrounded by music from the beginning. He became interested in rap and soul music when he was just a boy, so he started working in a local record store which set the basis for his career in the music industry, which his parents fully supported. He attended Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando.

Career Beginnings

One of his first jobs was at the record store Odyssey in 1993, which brought him to meet Birdman, Mavado and Lil Wayne and to help them in their breakthrough. However, he soon quit that job to pursue a career as a DJ, and started working for a local radio station. In 1998, he relocated to Miami, Florida when he was hired as the co-host of the radio show “The Luke Show” on WEDR. Khaled also became the host of a weeknight radio show on 99 Jamz.

Solo Career and Rise to Fame

Speaking about Khaled’s career in the music industry as a solo artist, it began in 2006, when he released his debut studio album entitled “Listennn… the Album” via Koch Records, achieving positive critiques and peaking at No. 12 on the US Billboard 200 chart.

This was followed in 2007 by his second studio album “We The Best”, which spawned such hit singles as “I’m So Hood” featuring Trick Daddy, T-Pain, Plies and Rick Ross, which reached No. 19 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and “We Takin’ Over” featuring Akon, Fat Joe, Lil Wayne, Birdman and Rick Ross, which debuted at No. 28 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and achieved gold certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). In addition, this latter song brought him Ozone Award in the category for Best Video.

The following year was even more successful for Khaled, as he released his third album “We Global” which gained many positive reviews from music critics, and included the single “Go Hard” with Kanye West and T-Pain. Later this year, his song “I’m So Hood” was certified platinum by the RIAA, potentially adding a considerable amount to his net worth.

Later Career

To speak further about Khaled’s career, in 2010 he released his next album called “Victory” which, ironically, had pretty low sales, although it debuted at No. 12 on the US Billboard 200 chart, and the single “All I Do Is Win” was certified double-platinum. This album was marked with guest appearances by some of the biggest names in the music industry, such as Snoop Dogg, Drake, Lil Wayne, Ludacris and many others.

In the next two years, he managed to release two new studio albums – “We The Best Forever” in 2011 and “Kiss The Ring” the following year, on which he collaborated with many rappers and famous produces, such as Jay-Z, Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, etc. Both of these albums entered the top five on the US Billboard 200 chart, which attracted several prosperous agencies, and he signed with Cash Money Records, Universal Motown, E1 Entertainment, and established his own label called We the Best Music Group.

Khaled’s next studio album – “Suffering From Success” – was released in 2013, increasing his popularity enormously due to the hit single “I Wanna Be With You” featuring Nicki Minaj. Two years later out came the album entitled “I Changed A Lot”.
