DJ Khaled Launches We The Best Music in Partnership with Def Jam

On Wednesday (February 13), Island Def Jam chairman LA Reid officially announced a new partnership between the label and DJ Khaled for the Miami native’s new imprint We The Best Music. Khaled exploded on the scene in 2006 with his debut LP, Listennn…the Album, which spawned the single “Holla at Me” with Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Paul Wall Fat Joe and Pitbull. On his sophomore project, 2007’s We The Best, the New Orleans born DJ and producer continued to unite some of the biggest names in Hip-Hop for epic album cuts, and solidified his reputation as one of the most respected DJ’s in the game. The debut album from rapper ACE will be the first release on We The Best Records with a street date to be announced in the coming weeks. “I’m proud to be a member of the Def Jam family,” DJ Khaled said in a statement announcing the deal. “Def Jam has been and still is one of the most important institutions in hip hop AND music as a whole. I am extremely honored and excited to be a partner with them in We The Best Music. I look forward to creating great music and continuing the success. LA, Shakir and Lenny S. are you ready? I am!” Despite the Def Jam deal, Khaled will remain a member of Fat Joe’s Terror Squad organization.

    Thanks Island/Def Jam for ensuring us of more bullshit for years to come.

  • latino heat

    congradulations! u are still the most annoying person in hip hop. and that covers a lot of ground. expect fat joe to come for his cut avery time u get a def jam check. and please when one of your artists drops a album (if they ever drop a album) do everybody a favor and SHUT THE FUCK UP!!! don’t say a word anywhere on the album and MAYBE it’ll be alright. NOBODY WANTS TO HEAT YOUR ANNOYING ASS DROPS!

  • NAWLEDGE

    Im from Miami myself and I find Dj Fagled very annoying. “WE DA BEST!” I hear that bullshit EVERYDAY at six o’clock when his gay ass show comes on the radio. The only thing good about it is he has a co-host named K. Foxx who is sexy ass hell. Other than that the show sucks balls. “WE DA BEST!” Then why are you so lame and why does your album suck?

  • da1nonlybadguy

    lol…and here all this time i thought i was the only one who thought “listennnnnnnnnnnnn” and “we the best!!” and whatever lame come out his mouth is annoying, feels good to know im not the only 1.

  • Ali

    oh God lol….I mean I like some songs on his albuims (chea im not gonna call them his songs, he don’t deserve that credit lol) but he’s pushing it with that “we tha best” chant & his mickey mouse voice……….might as well make a group with him Baby, Wayne, Ross, Fat Joe, and Cool & Dre lol…..he works with tha same ppl…..occasionally TIP & Jeezy lend a verse thats it

  • http://www.hip-hopkings.com Stu

    Should be good if Def Jam continue to be a strong label and that. Khaled is a very good DJ.

  • Ghost Deini

    We The Best Music????? That’s a fucking catchy brand. I’m not sayin he’s a bad DJ…but he should really shut his fucking mouth. He ruined himself with that “we the best” BULLSHIT. Seriously, how hard can it be to get the most trendy rappers to rap over trendy ass beats? What’s he do again? Oh right, he ruins the songs with his fucking mouth.
