Today In Hip-Hop: DJ Khaled Releases ‘We The Best’

On this day, June 12, in hip-hop history…


2007: DJ Khaled isn’t denying that he suffers from success. The Miami DJ/producer arguably released his strongest album today, We The Best, that featured an all-star cast. The album boasted a high amount of sales by selling over 440,000 total copies a year after its release. To add to that, We The Best had a string of catchy street-influenced songs that include “We Takin’ Over,” “I’m So Hood” and “Brown Paper Bag.”

Seven years later, Khaled is still producing hits.  Many of the album’s collaborators—Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Drake, French Montana—are currently part of his go-to MCs who help craft huge hip-hop anthems. His newest single  “They Don’t Love Me No More” featuring Meek Mill, French Montana, Jay Z and Rick Ross is currently burning up the charts, it’s safe to say that Khaled’s at the top and isn’t looking back.
