DJ Khaled has a net worth of $75 million and is an American record producer, radio personality, rapper, DJ, and record label executive. DJ Khaled is also the DJ for the hip hop group Terror Squad and the host of the Miami-based urban music radio station WEDR. DJ Khaled also makes tens of millions of dollars through endorsement partnerships with brands like Weight Watchers, T-Mobile Ciroc, and Apple.
Khaled Mohamed Khaled was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, on November 26, 1975, to Palestinian immigrant parents. He claims to be a practicing Muslim. Alec Ledd (Alaa Khaled), his younger brother, is also an actor. His parents were Arab musicians. Khaled’s parents encouraged him to pursue his passion for rap and soul music when he was a young lad. He got his start in music by working at a local record store.
Khaled rose to fame as a DJ on Miami hip hop radio station 99 Jamz in the 1990s. The group Terror Squad hired Khaled as their DJ because of his work at the radio station. Khaled got into curating records after a few credits with Terror Squad, and his debut studio album “Listennn… the Album” was released in 2006.
Following that, Khaled released “We The Best” in 2007, “We Global” in 2008, “Victory” in 2010, “We the Best Forever” in 2011, “Kiss the Ring” in 2012, “Suffering from Success” in 2013, “I Changed A Lot” in 2015, “Major Key” in 2016, “Grateful” in 2017, and “Father of Asahd” in 2019. “Khaled Khaled” is scheduled to be released in 2020.
“All I Do Is Win,” featuring Ludacris, Rick Ross, Snoop Dogg, and T-Pain, has become one of Khaled’s most popular tracks. The track was released as the second single from Khaled’s 2010 album “Victory.” The RIAA gave the song three platinum certifications.
Because of his larger-than-life demeanor, numerous Snapchat videos of Khaled discussing his “secret to success” went viral in late 2015 and early 2016. He rose to fame on the internet and was dubbed a “living meme” by some. Khaled is now one of the hip-most hop’s in-demand producers and a well-known social media figure.
He was the opening act for Demi Lovato’s Tell Me You Love Me Tour in 2018, which began in February and ended in July.
DJ Khaled debuted a new video for “Wish Wish” with Cardi B and 21 Savage on May 21, 2019. The clip, directed by Khaled and Eif Rivera, has a lot of explosions, fire, and motocross riders, and it seems like a B-level early-2000s street-racing film rushed into production to cash in on the success of the first Fast and Furious.
Khaled penned the New York Times best-selling book “The Keys.” His thoughts on accomplishments, life stories, and contributions from other musicians are all included in this book.
He has also worked as an actor, appearing in “Pitch Perfect 3,” “Spies in Disguise,” and “Bad Boys for Life” in 2017 and 2020, respectively.
Both the Ozone Awards and the BET Hip Hop Awards named him DJ of the Year in 2008. For “Hold You Down” and “How Many Times,” he received the ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Awards in 2016 for Best R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.
Chris Brown, August Alsina, Future, and Jeremiah are all featured on both tracks. In 2017, he received the ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Awards for Best R&B/Hip-Hop Song (with Jay-Z and Future) and Best Rap Song (featuring Drake) (featuring Drake). He also won the American Music Awards in 2017 for “I’m the One,” which he wrote (featuring Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, and Lil Wayne).
Issues of Law
Khaled agreed to a $750,000 settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission in November 2018 for failing to disclose payments accepted from issuers of an initial coin offering, including a personal $50,000 promotional payment from troubled cryptocurrency firm Centra Tech Inc., whose co-founders were indicted for fraud in May 2018.
“They are the SEC’s first cases involving claims of breaking restrictions on advertising investments in so-called initial coin offerings, or ICOs,” according to the regulator. This incident also involved boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.
My Private Life
Asahd Tuck Khaled, Khaled’s kid, was born on October 23, 2016, to Khaled and his wife Nicole Tuck. After live-streaming the birth on his Snapchat account, Khaled attracted national attention. Tuck had their second son on January 20, 2020.
Highlights of the Compensation Package
DJ Khaled made an amazing $30 million between September 2017 and September 2018, thanks to tours, productions, and, most significantly, endorsements. Endorsements with brands like Ciroc, Apple, and even Weight Watchers account for the vast majority of his profits in any given year. He is one of the hip-highest-paid hop figures, despite the fact that his wealth has little to do with hip-hop or music in general.
