DJ Khaled Enlists Nas, Kanye West For New Album

DJ Khaled brings in heavy hitters for "We the Best Forever."

DJ Khaled's albums are known for being star-studded affairs - a trend that will continue with his latest LP, We the Best Forever.

"My album is the most amazing thing ever," said Khaled in an interview with XXLMag.com.

Though the album will feature the artists that Khaled describes as "the usual suspects" - Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, Jadakiss, Fat Joe and Birdman, the Terror Squad deejay revealed that Nas and Kanye West would be joining the fray.

The album will have a bit of a smoother flavor to it as well, as Chris Brown, Keyshia Cole and Mary J. Blige will be featured, though Khaled cautions that it won't be soft.

“My Chris Brown record is – it’s called ‘Legendary.’ It ain’t R&B, that shit hard but everybody can relate to it.”

Watch the interview below:

    His job is to make other rappers look important. If people buy into that act, that's not his fault. He's laughing all the way to the bakery.

  • jesterdxxl

    Why can't Khaled just do an intro instead of shouting over every fucking trakc

  • haha

    This album is going to suck, his shit is all the same, don't get me wrong though, i hope the Ye track is good, but i'm sure Khaled will find a way to fuck it up by putting it on the same beat as all his other gay ass songs.

  • PookMonster

    LOLOL one of the funniest posts I have ever read on this site

  • Real Hip Hop

    The truth hurts! Khaled does not produce, rhyme or even DJ. Every song is the same lame concept, nothing but apperances by the same lame ass rappers. Khaled is nothing but a loud mouth asshole with absolutely no talent. Nas has no business working with Khaled, he truly is now a sell out.

    No hate on Khaled's album....but I gotta side with a lot of others and ask...What exactly does DJ Khaled do? Does he make beats? Has anyone ever seen him actually use turntables? Was he a radio Deejay or something? I'm just sayin, he calls himself "DJ" Khaled, does he actually deejay or what? Again, no hate against the guy, more power to him as far as business goes...but i really am curious as to what he does music-wise...as far as Nas and Kanye, they were already on his other albums, no surprise, I'll check stuff out when it drops, give it a listen, then decide if it's good or not...but seriously WHAT DOES HE ACTUALLY DO????

      Hes been a dj on south florida radio stations for awhile. I know somebody that went to high school with him in Orlando. He wasnt living in the hood back then so I wonder why hes in the hood so much now? According to dj khaled himself...he doesnt make beats, he just finds beats and says who should be on the beat. Then pays the rappers to drop a verse on said beat.

    Can we blame Khaled for the hyperbole in Hip-Hop today?

  • Taylor Karras

    *sigh* Didn't Kanye West and Nas appear on his last albums? What the hell makes them worth announcing on a press release? I wish this was an April Fools Joke, then it would be funny.

  • nawnigga

    this motherfucker khaled moves his head like a fucking parrot. everytime he talks i wanna punch him in the face

  • Kaan Özel

    Tha big question is how can a dumbass like him collabarate with Nas,Kanye and some other good artists? He must be begging them for hours. Whatever since he'll have plies,waka,fat joe,ross on the album the it'll mostly suck

  • Anonymous

    nigga makes the exact same record over and over again!

  • Anonymous

    This dude have the same artists on every album. Honestly I get tired of that. Put some alot of new artists on your LP along with the artists thats already out.

  • Anonymous

    The tracks Nas did with Khalad weren't terrible, probably the best songs on the album. But yeah, what does Khalad actually do, looking at the tracklists of his previous albums he hardly even produces a track.

  • war22

    i said it before and i say it again...Nas felt off...he said that a Rick Ross song made his Top5 tracks ever....i lost my respect for him

    • Anonymous

      they were his top songs for the moment, if i remember right he picked im single by weezy because he was newly single comin off that kelis divorce shit

    • andres

      he named his top 10 songs for some magazine, i think it was complex but im not sure, he did name a rick ross song and the lil wayne song "im single"...pretty gay but nas is still the lyrical monster

    • Dylann17

      Where or when did Nas say that because I would be interested to hear that?

  • FlavorFlav

    I wish this dude would hurry up and have a heart attack from all the big macs and quarter pounders he consumes. Most annoying "dj" since "dj" clue.

  • Optimus Rhyme

    It's a gawd damn shame that Nas has collaborated more with this clown Khaled in the last few years than DJ Premier or even someone like Just Blaze. What's he thinking? Why, Nas??

  • Anonymous

    nas was on his last two albums. Not exactly new.

  • mi opinion

    dj khaled doesnt even dj or produce half of his own tracks

  • kaos

    It'd be pretty decent of Khaled if he could finally organize an Eminem/Kanye collaberation...why has that not happened sooner anyway? Pretty much everyone else has done a song with each other (and no, songs like 'Forever' don't count. I mean Eminem and Kanye only)

  • Vanno Davis

    only cuz kanye on this album i will download that song cuz i dont respect khaled cuz really what does he do he can barely produce he doesnt rap he dere to put he name on the album cuz his name enn something i enn to buying

  • 9thwardboy

    Kanye and Nas was on his last album. So what is he saying?

    • Anonymous

      tracks 1-5 sound like total crap tracks 6-11 could be good track 12 would also be crap

    • Jesus

      yeah and they were the best outta the Dj Khaled Cd's i loved go hard, i loved the one with game and the two he has with Nas. if Khaled wants to make a good ass record. he should do twleve songs as follows 1.Feat. Rick Ross 2.Feat.Fat joe 3.Feat.T-pain and lil Wayne 4.Feat Gudda gudda and Cory Gunz 5.Feat. Drake and Birdman 6.Feat Kanye West and John legend 7.feat. Nas and Keyshia cole (justcuz it sounds like something Nas would jump on) 8.Feat. Ace Hood(give the nigga something to rap on before i completely give up 9.J.cole and Jay electronica 10.Big Sean CyHi Da prince and Consequence 11.Monter's Ball feat Eminem, Kanye, Lil Wayne, Nas, Jay-Z, Slaughterhouse,The Game(i would likeee kill myself for a song like that) 12.just Dj Khaled since the nigguh claims he can rap. or fuck it. do a Terror Squad song with everyone

  • dundun34

    well daaamn even the dj gettin hate. one question for u haters. what other dj you know consistently drops number one hits or club bangers??? or drops an album?? what other djs are dropping albums?? go head ill wait...

    • G

      A DJ that makes songs thinking he's from the hood when really he's not and makes the hood look like chains and cars in his videos? Every song by him has the same garbage cast except for 1 or 2 rappers. Every song sounds the exact same, same hooks, same beats, same everything. Khaled maybe has to do with 2% of the album. What is there to like about this fake fatass.

    • Anonymous

      he has 0 number 1 singles...hes best one hit 19 on the billboard top 100. oh and premo drops albums each year and hes been doin it since 88...and there actually good

  • Anonymous

    Khaleds album has decent songs at least I can say...all he doing is just shouting We The Best!!!!!!! Nahhh

  • Anonymous

    Get some different producers that arent cool n dre or the runners and someone on the hook that isnt t-pain or akon and this album will be hot

  • Jose Vasquez

    Khaled's only success comes from the people he worked with, other than that, he's a trash DJ, do some instrumentals and see how much sell, and they all can't sound the same lol

  • Naah Son

    this nigga looks like the blueberry girl from willy wonka

  • hellrazor

    dj khaled sayin his album's gonna be amazing has made me laugh so hard, i aint laughed that hard since i first saw the hangover

    "My album is the most amazing thing ever," what a great quote from the legendary hitmaker dj khaled, best dj in da game for sure!!! LOLZ

    • Rubbs

      Hahaha DJ Khaled is the most annoying faggot ever. His albums are all gay and fake. I thought Nas would be smarter than to work with him but I guess everyone wants some mainstream.

  • J-hunt da Prodigy

    Good, last time Kanye was on a Khaled album we got "Go Hard" and everything Nas does for Khaled albums are dope. His albums would be way better if he diversified from the predictable line-ups though. I wish he would get Eminem on a record for the streets like he was talking about a while back, all anyone hears him on anymore is Pop/Rock tinged sh*t.

  • Anonymous

    Fat fuck doing an interview, and picking on his fucking phone instead.

  • OhSoDisrespectful

    How can Khaled say "my album" with a straight face. HE DOESNT DO ANYTHING

  • bla

    inside sources claim that the 2 will be the only rappers on the album that know how to rap and are not obese.

  • Naz

    Cant wait to hear that nas track ! every track nas has done for khaled has been sick On another note , what does Khaled actually do apart from shouting We the Best on everything ? Does he produce beats or what cause i dont hear him spit ?
