DJ Khaled is multi-talented in the way he becomes not only an artist but also radio host and Def Jam South president. Born on November 26, 1975 in New Orleans, Louisiana, Khaled Bin Abdul Khaled inherited Palestinian blood. In his teens, Khaled had developed interest in music but he didn't want to be a rapper because he "didn't have that kind of ethic".
He loved making beats and experimenting with sounds, therefore he chose to be a music producer. "I fell in love with making sounds and beats and from then on I worked very hard to get somewhere with my music," Khaled said. One of his first takes in showbiz was as radio host and a sidekick to Miami rapper Luther Campbell in 1998. In the same year, hip-hop group Terror Squad was established in Bronx, NYC and Khaled joined as a member.
