DJ Khaled Talks Young Jeezy-Rick Ross Beef, His Role In Music

DJ Khaled says Jeezy and the Bawse have no beef and explains what he actually does.

With DJ Khaled's upcoming Cash Money Records debut, We the Best Forever, rapidly approaching release, the Hip Hop personality sat down with Bootleg Kev in an interview to discuss apparent beef between two artists that appear on his album: Rick Ross and Young Jeezy.

"First of all, I don't condone problems. I represent that love and making good music," explained Khaled.

"Them two guys, they don't have problems. ...They don't have problems. People just try to make things into a problem."

Additionally, Khaled took time to explain what many in the Hip Hop community are curious about: what he actually does. "I'm like the Hip Hop Barry Gordy. I'm like the Hip Hop Quincy Jones," boasted Khaled. "I put these amazing events together. They just don't happen."

"It's getting in the studio, coming up with ideas, actually having relationships with certain artists." Khaled added a laundry list of responsibilities, clarifying once and for all his importance to the creative process: "I'm a producer, I'm a boss, I'm a mogul, I'm an artist, I do it all!"

  • Anonymous

    Why he dont produce his own hits then?


    I honestly I don't really care and it aint that big of a deal but I just think he lame for thinking hes an artist/rapper/painter/etc... dude IS on his grind tho and I respect that...just wish he would shut the hell up LOL... WEEEE DAAA BEEESSST IN DAAA HOOOOD!!!!!!! LOL


    This dude is straight up full of shit...does he mix down tacks? Make beats? Rap? "He makes money" ...IDAF so do I... Dude knows rappers, dude knows producers. He puts the two together and makes an album with his name on it...That's business NOT art. He's a business man and that's it.


    "I do it all" is another way of saying you do nothing...

  • Andre Cooper

    Seeing all this hate just let's me know that khaled dick stays in the haterz mouth!!!! All i kno is that he makes money and your favorite artist fucks wit him. Nuff said

    • illegal ass foo

      ur obviously on his nuts. so that means u like everything thats on the radio, u like to follow trends, which is all wack, he makes money, cool, no hate there, but come on if u say hes a producer and really produces no beats, aint really an artist, cant officially say, "i put artists together, and find the right beats" he could say that, muthafucker just went around all that shit, and couldnt really explain wut he does, hes less than a quarter of all those things he says he is, the real boss r the people hes gettin that choose to b on his shit. favorite artist, i bet u get all offended wen u talk shit on lil b and people call u the hater, wen shit sounds stupid dont defend it, wut do u think it makes u, " ur favorite artists fuk wit him"? big l passed away so, i sont know who u would call favorite.

  • Gregor Scott

    Khaled still puts out the compilation albums, mixtapes, events. Sure, he's deluded as to how important he is but he has certainly made an impact.

  • Anonymous

    he doesnt do shit.

  • DL Dub

    Kahled is a hype man, and hype man only. Less skill than flavor flav, yet somehow louder and more annoying. He does NOTHING and everybody knows it, yet for some reason, he's necessary? I guess because he gets all the hot artists together on a compilation album and has an expensive finders fee. Wish I could make money off callin up the homies and yelling in the foreground

  • Mu

    After reading this, I STILL have no idea what Khaled does in terms of the actual creative process of making music. BUT, it seems like he has the kind of personality, hustle and enthusiasm to get some of the biggest names in hip-hop to collaborate to make hot music, which I think is pretty significant. Think about it, the songs he puts out with mostly popular southern rappers would be like if Jay-Z, Nas and 50 would've been putting out songs together when they were all in their prime. It's actually one of the reasons why the south has had the game on lock... eastcoast niggas had too much pride and ego to collaborate


    Khaled bin Abdul Khaled is a arab. He is not black, white, spanish, mexican. He is a arab who exploites black people and the culture.

      I knew Khaled since he lived in Avalon, and DJ'ed at The Beat. The cat is a bomb DJ, quiet as it's kept. But I can't fuck with "Rick Ross". That fat pig is a phony piece of shit. One time for Brisco, Piccolo, and Kase 1- the realest Dade County niggas who never got their shine...

  • Alexander Foes

    WTF? Khaled is just a fucking DJ. Not a good one either. "I'm a producer, I'm a boss, I'm a mogul, I'm an artist, I do it all!" Producer? This cat steals beats from young kids tryna promote their music. I'm a boss? Who the fucks boss are you? Definitely not Weezy, Ross, or Jeezy's. Mogul? Nah. Event organizer okay, but lets not get ahead of ourselves. Artist? LAUGHING.

    • oscar

    Devil's Advocate - but quincy jones and barry gordy never put his name all up in the song title and screamed over the beat. That's what people have a problem with. Your name being all over the songs. Its like false advertizing. Album Credits aren;t enough I guess.

    I genuinely can't stand this man. "We The Best Forever," really? If he was white, he'd be no different than the multitude of exploiters in the music industry since African Americans were allowed to even record. This man is a clown, nothing more.
