DJ Khaled Still Hopes For Eminem Collaboration

Mr. "We the Best" is still on the hunt for an ever-elusive collaboration with Slim Shady.

Nearly a year ago this day, DJ Khaled announced that he was hoping to record with one of rap's biggest stars, Eminem.

While that dream has yet to materialize, Khaled believes that it is a real possibility.

“I wanted Eminem,” said Khaled in an interview with Hot 97’s Angie Martinez. “I really want to make it happen, I think it’s gon’ happen.”

Shady, who is known for having a precious few allegiances outside of the Shady/Aftermath family (among them Jay-Z, Lil Wayne and T.I.), has not been easy to get a hold of, according to the Terror Squad deejay.

“I never really sat down and talked to him,” he explained. “I’m a fan of him and I’m cool with him, but he doesn’t know me like that. I really don’t know what route to get him.”

Khaled added that he has a track picked for the master lyricist. “Ya’ll A&R That.”

    this album is garbage and what does he do again??

  • DirtySouth22

    Make a new CD with all unknown rappers & singers on it - this will show that Khaled rides popular & established artist's coat tails.

  • Logan K

    Yo, I'd hate to have somebody finally work with me because I kept whining to the media about how I've worked with some of the biggest names out there - When you one day get to Em's level, maybe you'll have some class and let it happen naturally. Nobody likes a whiner or a name dropper - hopefully Em or his A&R wont fall for this kind of bullshit & PR baiting.

  • Nico 3

    It's not about money... It's about respect. Eminem doesn't respect Khaled enough to collaborate at this time.

  • Kendall Walters

    give up u not gettin with the real best, "we the best" wanna be, fatass.

  • Angel Xavier De Peña

    Wouldn't be surprised if this happens. Em already does songs with garbage emcees like Nicki Minaj and TI.

  • Naver

    Juelz Santana already tried getting em on a track in 09 but em never responded, now this faggot khaled tried gettin em on a track last year and em didn't respond. Why does he keep begging??? Dis nigga needs to hop off ems dick and give up.

  • Everett Da Amin Rucker

    lol Em would never do this

  • Cristian Mayen

    Sorry khaled, we dont even know what you do in your tracks, you suck on whatever you do and nobody buys your shit so what makes you think he's going to "collab" with you!!

  • Daniel Gregory

    Lol khaled goes from cosigning with Rick Ross calling eminem "swaggerless" to begging Eminem multiple times for a guest appearance on his album. Look khaled if em ignorded you the first 2 times what makes you think he changed his mind this time.

      @anonymous ever stopped to think about why he collabed with those artists? 1. Love the way you lie is about domestic violence, it makes perfect sense to have someone known for going through it to give the song a more authentic feel. 2. Bruno Mars - Royce said he wanted a track with Bruno Mars so he could get more recognition. 3. Pink - He said she'd sound great on the hook since the beat was rock based and while I dislike her music I think she did a good job on the hook. 4. If he wants to show how much of a better rapper then these YM rappers he is and get paid and get more fans in the process, why not?

    • Demshot

      @Anonymous since when is khaled legit?? What does he do? Yell "we da best" in every track? Hop off his jock. Rihanna, pink, nicki, and Bruno mars are more legit musicians than khaled can ever with to be.

    • Anonymous

      eminem is all about money, he will do it if the price is right khaled is more legit than nicki, pink, rihanna, bruno mars, etc....

  • Its Um

    You're wack that's why plus haven't put eminem team on, get D12 or slaugherhouse, or someone that was on the label then he'll think about it, till then stick with stars you could get.

  • GLOCKWORK

    Too bad Shady doesn't collaborate with no talent hacks...

  • Anonymous

  • Mr Flamboyant

    What is this McDonald's commercial in which some of y'all spoke? And cream filling hitting his face? Did he say No Homo? Yeah. Khaled is dyslexic apparently. He says "We The Best" when he's obviously the f'n worst. Ol' no talent having, don't produce a single joint, dick riding clown.

    • it goes something like this

      it's dj khaled and mcdonalds is what i'm talking about, and it's what i love the mint cafe hot chocolate let me tell you somethin about the mint cafe hot chocolate when you put that whipped cream on top and that chocolate syrup and that steamed milk before you even drink it when you have it in your hand and you feel how warm it is and you saying 'MANNN' when i take a sip of this and then you take a sip and that whooped cream is on your face and even hits your nose you dont even get mad, you dont even wipe it off cause your immediately go back in for more hot chocolate and then after that whipped cream is gone then you realize WOOOWWWW your voice starts sounding better you sippin on the stuff and you like MANNNN then you drinking it and its so warm but the thing is when i finish my mint cafe hot chocolate you know i dont lie people i go back in my pocket and i go buy another one so the mint cafe hot chocolate makes my day amazing mcdonalds, i'm excuse me, we loving it

      And throw your Big 3 losing to Dallas in the finals... It's a rough couple of years for Dade county

    • Don Vito Browardini

      Man, you said it CCCCC! PitBull at least stays in his lane. Remember he used to call in to 99 Jamz and freestyle on the radio? He's always been a rappin'ass chico. Khaled is a cool DJ, but his movement is some bullshit. And Officer Ricky is just a fat damn shame. Miami REALLY looks stupid right about now.

  • fuckthis

    after em collabin with lil wayne , anything is possible , fucking sell out

    • Anonymous

      Still lyrical, meaningful, and creative so not a complete sellout. More like a partial sellout.

    • cccccc

      stupid its called marketing... jay z did the same thing with wayne and drake.. there audience are little kids.. little kids annoy there parents into buying them cd's which equals money in there pocket...

    • Anonymous

      so he a sell out for doing what he does and gets money??? then your moms or pops were fucking sellouts idiot!

  • YOUAJOKE

    SAME PEOPLE SAYING EM WONT WORK WITH KHALED ARE THE SAME PEOPLE SAYING HE WOULDNT WORK WITH WAYNE... HE WILL DO A TRACK WITH HIM THE MORE KHALED KEEPS TALKING ABOUT IT THE MORE LIKELY EM WILL WORK WITH HIM JUST LIKE WAYNE DID

  • Guest

    IF THE STUPID PEOPLE STOP BUYING THE SHIT HE PUTS OUT, HE WOULD GET DROPPED AND FUCK OFF AND HOPEFULLY NEVER BE SEEN AGAIN. THIS ARAB JUST LOVES THE FAME AND SHIT AND ITS GOING TO HIS HEAD THINKING HE AN ARTIST WHO PEOPLE CARE ABOUT. ONLY REASON THE STUPID PEOPLE BUY YOUR SHIT IS CAUSE OF THE ARTISTS ON THE CD, NOT CAUSE OF YOU. SOMEONE SEND OBAMA AND HIS PEOPLE AFTER HIM, LIKE HIS DADDY.

    • Javier Martinez

      Anonymous, but you have to have some creative input to be an artist. Khaled doesn't even produce most of "his" songs. He's just a dick riding fan boy that is fortunate enough to be friends with mad rappers & get them together on songs. He exploits art.

    • Anonymous

      fucking waste of cum u. you don't have to rap to be an artist dumb piece of shit u.

  • Daniel Gregory

    LMAO!!! When will this faggot Learn that if you get ignored the first time it means that perhaps em isn't interested and that it probably ain't gonna happen. Em is a smart man and he understands that the negatives here outweigh the positives. Em doesn't whore himself out to every motherfucker that begs unless he has something to gain from the transaction. DJ Khaled is barkin at the wrong tree and should stick to collabing with wack cats like Waka n plies.

    • ccccc

      its called marketing to sell a cd.. all those songs are all quality songs all khaled songs are garbage... dude is right stay with your crew go dick pull fat joe and plies and pitbull and all them sorry rappers.. and its not the same thing because there actually musicians... any one of those dudes you mentioned can play an instrument or at least sing.. khaled ignorant ass doesnt even know what a instrument even is and thinks screaming we the best and listen is music.. no nigga u listen u the best at sucking dick cuz u fucking suck

    Wouldn't be the first time Em has sold out in the last couple of years.

  • Eminem

    Fuck you khaled, you can keep waiting. Never in my life will I collaborate with someone as talentless as you. Benzino has more talent than you. I'll work with Rick Ross' fatass before yours. SHADY!

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, BetaOffer.com

  • Angel

    If he cn get a record with Eminem I'd like to see it be Em, Royce, Yelawolf and Busta Rhymes, Or somebody that can stick wit Em

    • bgizzle

      no hate on yelawolf but his boy rittz spits way better than him...take out yela and that shit would have nasty rappers on it...and throw a lil twista on there cuz he can get down to.

  • prewoz

    You can hate on Khaled but he arranges good collaborations that equate to good music. If Em doesn't do something with Khaled it's out of respect for 50, that's the only reason.

  • Javier Martinez

    I've said it here before, I'll say it again. DJ Khaled - Dick Rider Extraordinaire. The best porn stars don't ride as many dicks as this tub of lard. Opportunistic, no-talent-having ass bum.
