He was like, ‘We should bring Khaled on board. He makes hits, he has relationships.’ I got a team of producers and we go in hard. My job is to bring hits to the table and work with new artists and work with established artists. I’m bringing new energy to the game and to the building.” [Watch Below] Under the new position Khaled – who also produces under the alias Beat Novacaine -will be responsible for records by Ludacris, Young Jeezy, Ace Hood and of course Rick Ross.

The Boss’ forthcoming album, Deeper Than Rap, will be the first release under Khaled’s watch. He also A&R’d the project. While Ross is currently involved in a heated battle with rival 50 Cent, Khaled opts to stay out of the back and forth. “I don’t deal with negative energy, it’s a waste of my time and my time is valuable,” he said. “I keep negative away and stay positive.”

“At Def Jam, we promote music,” he added. “We promote hit records. That’s what I respect. I’m always going to represent the music; Rick Ross is gonna represent the music. If controversy comes with it, it comes with it. And boy, ‘Magnificent’ — Rick Ross featuring John Legend, that’s Ricky Ross’ first single — it’s a monster. It’s gonna be on and poppin’.”

Deeper Than Rap hits stores on March 24. The album will feature appearances by Nas, Mary J. Blige and Lil Wayne.

[Listen Now] DJ KHALED- We Global Now

Koch Records is making DJ Khaled’s WE GLOBAL NOW FREE for streaming by CLICKING [HERE]

Very few artist have been able to do what this Miami based DJ has been consistently effective at, and that’s making hit records. This compilation is a very impressive offering from Khaled, full of features but his strength is in composing dynamic collaborations that pull the best out of the artist featured. Joe, Kanye, Pain, The Game, Nas, Ross, and even Ace Hood showed up with their ace game and delivered Khaled another certified banger.
I can see why Koch was confident to make this available to the buying public from free a week before it dropped. People will invest in quality and this album meets that mark.

The artists featured on DJ Khaled’s album We Global read like a MTV awards show performance line-up. It’s like the who’s who of famous “featuring” artists. It’s like he took anyone who ever made a song famous by rapping 8 bars or singing a chorus and got them all on his album. Lil’ Wayne. Busta Rhymes. Akon. T-Pain. Kanye. Sean Paul. Chris Brown. Crazy, right? Anyway, it’ll be in stores next week but you can listen to the full dealie right now! This time it’s DJ Khaled: featuring you.

Khaled & Ross Secure Distribution for their Movement

 rick-ross2.jpg

According to Def Jam recording artist Rick Ross the port of Miami is the center for all distribution, well slighty.  That is if you’re shopping for yayo, but if you’re shopping a project called M.I.Yayo then you have to come up north to acquire sound distribution and both the Boss Rick Ross and DJ Khaled have done that for their respective ventures.  First, Ross partnered with Boston based Traffic Entertainment for distribution for his coke documentary M.I.Yayo, a gritty depiction of the affects, cause and antics of Miami street life during its billion dollar cocaine heydays. According to Traffic Ent. President Joseph Mansfield,  

“Many distributors were reluctant to take a chance on a project from a rap artist that is not music related. I have full confidence that this project can carry itself via the content, it is powerful, and that is why Traffic Entertainment took the risk, now the industry will see that the higher risk the bigger the reward.”

Ross said,

“It is incredibly shocking, and many think Miami is South Beach, that’s it. The world wants to know the real deal and this is it with M.I.Yayo.”

Expect M.I.Yayo to be cooked up, wrapped up and ready to go on March 25th at all major retail. Check http://www.maybachmusicgroup.com for updates or to purchase. Trilla in stores soon. Riding the wave of success is DJ Khaled, Robin to Ross’ Batman who just secured a deal with Def Jam for distribution of his label, you ready yall…We The Best. So those who were begging the Miami native to retire his trademark ad-lib there is no conceivable way of escaping “We The Best” blaring out of speakers for the next couple of months. What tricks does Khaled have in is deck? Look out for the first artist Ace. Khaled had this to say,

“I’m proud to be a member of the Def Jam family. “Def Jam has been and still is one of the most important institutions in hip hop and music as a whole. I am extremely honored and excited to be a partner with them in We The Best Music. I look forward to creating great music and continuing the success. L.A., Shakir and Lenny S are you ready? I am! Let’s go! Caaaaassssshhhhh Flooooowww!”

Rick Ross and T-Pain “The Boss”

This dropped a little while back but it still deserves a post. This song is fire and T-Pain proves once again that he is the new go to when you need a bonafide hit.  The egg heads at Def Jam better not mess up this project as they have done with the latest Def Jam releases that have performed poorly in the market place. Boss!!
