DJ KHALED Ma­jor Key

Black But­ter/Epic When K haled bin Ab­dul K haled dis­cov­ered Snap chat, he found his holy grail. The New Or­leans-born pro­ducer and DJ may­have eight al­bums, but it’s the unique way in which he em­braced and utilised the so­cial me­dia net­work which set him apart. No was much of an in­spi­ra­tional life coach as a mu­si­cian, K hal ed’ s lat­est comes with an eye­catch­ing A-list cast in­clud­ing Jay-Z, Fu­ture, N as, Ken­drick La mar, Drake, Lil Wayne, Big Sean and tons more. So what does K haled do? For the most part, he’ s cheer­leader and hype man, adding a few sh outs of“ma­jor keys” here and there, co-pro­duc­ing some of the turns and leav­ing the meat to the guests. I Got the Keys is ab anger thanks to Jig ga and Fu­ture’ s fiery con­tri­bu­tions,

Holy Key sees La­mar and Big Sean go bril­liant ly head to head an dNasAl­bum
