During his career, DJ Khaled has worked with the biggest names in the music industry. Some of the big names that have collaborated with Khaled include Jay Z, Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Beyonce, and Rihanna.
Khaled was born in New Orleans. He started DJ'ing at age 13. He began practicing in a garage. His parents supplied him with equipment. They eventually moved to Orlando, Florida. He worked at Shoney's as a busboy. His family went through financial trouble and they landed in hot water with the IRS. Khaled's parents were musicians from Palestine. He began DJ'ing for any place that would let him.
Khaled eventually joined the east coast rap collective Terror Squad. Big Pun passed away, and Khaled didn't appear on any of their albums. He was later recruited by rapper Luther Campbell.
Khaled has released eight full-length albums. He has collaborated with Justin Bieber, Drake, SZA, Beyonce, Chris Brown, and Lil Wayne.
Known as the king of Miami hip hop, DJ Khaled has become a force in the music industry. His eponymous debut album "Khaled" landed at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100.

He had a couple of jobs, including working at Shoney's and Odyssey Records in New Orleans. He also worked as a busboy. When he was 20, Khaled moved to Miami. Eventually, he had his own show on 99 Jamz. He was also a DJ at Rockers Island in Miami. But it took him a couple of years to establish himself in the music industry.
In 2007, Khaled released his first single "For Free" produced by Jordan Ullman. The song was nominated for the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration at the 2012 Grammy Awards.
Despite the fact that DJ Khaled's new album, Grateful, debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 albums chart, he's not very happy about its placement. The rapper claims that the album's placement is due to bundling deals, streaming services, and label chiefs. Fortunately for him, most of his equivalent units are streaming equivalents.
The first single off Grateful, "Shining," featured Jay-Z and Beyonce. The song peaked at number 53 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Khaled released "I'm the One" in early May, which featured Justin Bieber and Lil Wayne. The song debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. It was also nominated for the American Music Awards for Best Rap/Hip-Hop Song. It was supported by the single "Staying Alive" that featured Drake.

In the music world, a number one album is a lot more than the simple fact that it's been certified gold. A number one album often indicates that the record is a smash hit, but it doesn't necessarily mean that it's a great album.

During his birthday party last weekend, hip hop mogul and philanthropist Drake gifted his longtime collaborator DJ Khaled four high end Toto toilets. It isn't every day that you hear about a major industry player handing out a hefty amount of cash to their biggest fan.
As a matter of fact, the company's website does not make it easy for would-be Airbnb renters to access a bathroom stocked with these state-of-the-art fixtures. However, in a recent Instagram post, DJ Khaled revealed that he plans to install at least one of the toilets in his palatial Miami mansion. With the company's price tag, it's no wonder he's willing to pay top dollar.
Of course, as the proud owner of a multi-million dollar mansion, it's only natural that the resident elitist would be in the running for the latest and greatest in bathroom decor. In fact, DJ Khaled isn't the only bigwig with a piqued appetite. This is particularly true of the company's latest high-end offerings.
In short, the Toto toilets are the best of the best. It's not often that you get to choose the best of the best. Luckily for Khaled, he's got a taste for the finer things in life. The aforementioned multi-million dollar mansion isn't a short hop from the company's headquarters in Los Angeles. That's not to mention the company's other properties, such as its high end retail stores and catering companies, where high end toilets are par for the course.
While the Toto toilets may not be for everyone, it's safe to say that DJ Khaled and his entourage are the luckiest bastards in the universe. Having a high-tech toilet isn't something that every homeowner should take for granted, but for those who are willing to pay the price, the company's offerings are worth the money. The company's website lists the base model's starting price at $2,346. Fortunately, if you're looking to upgrade your bathroom, Toto's website has a helpful customer service department. Hopefully, this won't be a one off for the oh so lucky. Until then, happy Thanksgiving from DJ Khaled and crew!
