DJ Khaled Releases "Never Surrender" Video

DJ Khaled gets assistance from Scarface, Jadakiss, Meek Mill, John Legend, Anthony Hamilton and Akon for the release of his "Never Surrender" video off "Suffering from Success."

To prepare for this week's release of his new album, Suffering from Success, DJ Khaled has released the visuals for "Never Surrender," a video and song that features Scarface, Jadakiss, Meek Mill, John Legend, Anthony Hamilton and Akon. 

The release comes shortly after the unveiling of behind-the-scenes footage from the music video. In the behind-the-scenes footage, Scarface spoke about what separates DJ Khaled as a producer. 

"A lot of people get that fucked up," Scarface said. "They think that a producer make beats and shit. No, a producer gets the job done. Khaled is more of a producer than a whole bunch of mothafuckers that make beats, in my opinion. Khaled see this mothafucker from beginning to end. He produces his own shit. He got niggas that make beats, but a producer, if you look up the word, the mothafucka finishes the shit, producing it, gettin' it done." 

The song, as noted, features Anthony Hamilton, John Legend and Akon signing throughout the track. This idea helped create what Khaled has referred to as an event.

"Everybody's gonna sing the hook, because this is gonna touch the nerve of the gutter, but in a soulful way," Khaled has said in clips regarding the making of this song. "They gonna talk about this when it come out...What I just named is an event."

Suffering from Success is slated to be released tomorrow (October 22). 

The video for "Never Surrender" can be viewed below.

    "But still that doesn't excuse a grown ass 30 yr old man from killin Snupe over a fuckin video game" Good point, but remember they were in the hood where people die over the dumbest shit like a video game. I bet Snupe had the chance to shut the fuck up, but he probably mouthed off thinking the older dude wouldn't do anything.

    Black people tend to make diamonds out of dust. When we started Graffiti the art world called us posers and said we knew nothing about traditional art. When we started B-Boying/Breaking the traditional dance community called us posers and said our dancing was primitive. When we started Rapping/Scratching/Sampling/Beat-Boxing the music community called us posers and said we were not real musicians and you had to sing over instrumentals for it to be music. Now we pop wheelies on bikes and created our own version of street-Moto and they wanna call us posers. Instead of congratulating Meek & Chino people want to ridicule them.....it's sad.

    "Sometimes a simple argument can lead to death or injury and you never know where it's coming from, even family members will snake you" We don't know the trash Snupe was talking before he met his maker, so regardless, he could have just walked away. That's even easier than staying to argue.

    • Young Guwop

      But still that doesn't excuse a grown ass 30 yr old man from killin Snupe over a fuckin video game. It showed the immaturity on both sides. A grown ass man all in his feelings and a cocky teen who just getting to experience life for what it offers.

    "just saying he could have helped the kid" Maybe, but you'd think after signing a deal Snupe would have been smart enough to not involve himself in a dispute, especially with a person older than him and probably jealous Snupe was about to be put on.

    Why's Khaled always touching his face like that? Did his puppy just die? Did he get his side piece knocked up? What kinda philosophical shit is he pondering? I need answers.

      wrote the hook and chorus ? nah i dont believe that for a second

    • Anonymous

      Khaled purchased the beat, came up with the theme/concept, handpicked the artists wrote the hook/chorus and arranged the music and verses. The reason why Scarface said that Khaled does more than an actual producer is because Scarface has spent the last 27 years of his life recording music in the studio and is qualified to speak on the intricacies of music production.

    Funny how Ross is standing there with his arm around Akon Who remember when William Roberts took shots at Akon for exaggerating about his criminal past???? I mean what a fucking joke!!! Shit at least Akon had a criminal past and went to prison not like Officer Ricky who got paid to be there and search his brothers cracks.

      It looks like Akon and Ross were able to put aside any petty differences and come together and make music and money. Sadly many people are too unhappy, bitter, and negative to focus on positivity so they wallow in hatred and negativity....miserable people.

      Meek did exactly what he was supposed to do, he reached back into the community and gave a talented kid a chance to achieve his life's dream, he gave him guidance, money, and a recording contract. Sadly Meek is no babysitter and you can't tell another man not to go back to the Hood when that's where all your family and friends are. It's a sad and tragic event but blaming Meek is about as ignorant as blaming Snupes parents.

      wayne and meek are both posers who dont know anything about skating or moto

    • Anonymous

      The marketing campaign is based on trying to connect X games with the inner-city and vice versa. Monster wants to tap into the Bike life scene and use some cross-marketing to get Hip-Hoppers into X games. LiL Wayne and his skateboarding was a recent example of this scenario. Its a great opportunity for the Monster brand ro get some so-called street cred and great for guys like Meek to get more exposure for his music from the alternative demographic. The big winner is Chino who will become a star IMO.

      slowly becoming an X-Games star? LOLOL cmon son. he cant even ride like that. all he can do is wheelies and ride with no hands on the street. last i checked they dont do that in x-games. they do double back flips off 60 foot dirt jumps. he has zero skills on a dirt bike. anyone can pop a wheel and ride the brakes how would you know if that guys jewelry was insured and replaced?

    • Anonymous

      Monster Energy just signed Meek to an endorsement deal worth half a million dollars and and an equipment allowance for bikes and gear. He's slowly becoming an X-games star and forcing corporate sponsers to take notice and invest in his brand. (along with LiL Chino who is the true star when it comes to bikes). Succes like this makes it difficult to concern ones self with random diss records from underground artists like Cassidy. Yes, Loui V was robbed at gunpoint, but the jewellry was insured and has since been replaced, and as it says in Meeks lyrics he "ain't been robbed for his chain yet". Meek Mills boss Ross is not a Cop, if he was a policeman/cop he would be a sworn in member of a police department performing duties respective of his profession. Meek Mills boss Ross to my knowledge is a recording artist, entrepanure, CEO and philanthropist. Have you ever been to MeekMillDreamTeam~DotCom ?? Meek is one of the future stars in HipHop.

      stop it hes not no A&R for def jam

    • Anonymous

      Khaled gets an A&R check from Def Jam and eats off publishing from WTB but these albums typically have big singles that sell very well so Khaled eats nicely and often as evident by his waistline. The promo is pretty grassroots and a bulk of the visuals are in house so he'llrecoup and profit. Imagine if your budget is $500,000, and you move 50K units at $10 and have a single that sells 500,000 copies at $1....... You'd have money like Khaled and 7 albums in your catalog like Khaled.

      It ooks like Khaled & French put any foolishness and immaturity behind them and decided to get money together like hustlers and businessmen who want to have succesful and productive lives. It seems like Khaled does an excellent job of keeping his circle tight since it appears he has very few problems and issues in the industry and his personal life.

    • Anonymous

      You know very little about the ingredients it takes to make hit records, anyone can make a beat but nobody wants to listen to a simple instrumental beat unless it has the proper ingredients which are the subject, the chorus/hook, the singing/rapping and the arrangement. A beat is like a meat-patty but you need bread, cheese, lettuce, tomatoe, onion, ketchup, & mayonnaise to make it a meal. Khaled is a chef in the studio, he puts the ingredients together and cooks it up so we can eat and enjoy the food at its best.
