In 2006, DJ Khaled released his debut album through Fat Joe's Terror Squad label. Because of his background as a hypeman and a DJ, he did not rap. In order to fill his albums, the Miami-area DJ, had to enlist several rappers to be on his songs and albums.
Initially, his music only had a small following and only rappers from the South and unknown rappers performed on his albums. Lil Wayne was one of DJ Khaled's biggest collaborators and supporters. When his career took off, Khaled benefited.
DJ Khaled's 2007 hit, "We Takin' Over," put him on the map and his next album fared much better. By 2010, DJ Khaled had landed collaborations with Snoop Dogg and had a shoutout from Jay-Z. Now, one year later, DJ Khaled had lined up all the big names to be on his upcoming album, We The Best Forever.
Among the guests on the album will be Game, Young Jeezy, Fat Joe, Drake, Rick Ross, and Lil Wayne.
