For five years now, DJ Khaled has aligned himself with some of the biggest names in rap starting with his debut album in 2006 Listennn…The Album. Khaled’s fifth studio album We The Best Forever will be the first of his records to have major label backing and has already spawned two hits “Welcome To My Hood” and I’m On One” – with stars such as Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Drake, T-Pain and Plies joining him on the smash records.
DJ Khaled caught up with hosts Bootleg Kev and Mr. Bob of Las Vegas radio station Hot 97.5 for an on-camera interview in where the DJ gave himself props for his live show, what he contributes to the game and his thoughts on becoming a feature rapper. However, the big bombshell dropped was Khaled stating on air that frequent past collaborators Rick Ross and Young Jeezy have ended their feud with one another.
“Well first of all, I don’t condone problems,” said the gruff voiced Khaled. “That’s what I do. I represent that love and just making great music. And them two guys, they don’t have no problems. I guess people in the streets try to make things into a problem. But that’s just life, that’s when you know you’re hot. That’s just part of the game.” Khaled continued and ended his thoughts on the matter succinctly with, “They ain’t got no problems, it’s all love.”
Khaled named “I’m On One” as his favorite record from his upcoming album but excitedly mentioned a track featuring Cee-Lo Greene, Busta Rhymes and The Game titled “Sleep When I’m Gone” and also talked up a Young Jeezy feature. The album will also feature Wale, Vado, Ace Hood and veterans such as Jadakiss and R&B legend Mary J. Blige.
We The Best Forever will be released on July 19.
