DJ Khaled Addresses "I Feel Like Pac/I Feel Like Biggie" Critics

DJ Khaled says critics of "I Feel Like Pac/I Feel Like Biggie" off "Suffering from Success" need to use "intelligence."

DJ Khaled recently addressed critics of his single, "I Feel Like Pac/I Feel Like Biggie," a selection that features Diddy, Swizz Beatz, Rick RossMeek Mill and T.I. over Beat Bully production.

"I feel like 'Pac," DJ Khaled said during a recent interview with Life+Times. "I feel like Biggie. We ain't say I am 'Pac or I am Biggie. That's where you have to use your intelligence. Wheoever's thinking that it's supposed to be a negative vibe, I'm confused 'cause I don't understand it. It's nothin' but love. Of course you have people talking this and that, but I think they misunderstand the energy. The energy is 'I Feel Like 'Pac/I Feel Like Biggie.' They the greatest ever. Nobody's better than them." 

Ma$e was believed to be a critic of the song. Soon after it was released, the Harlem, New York emcee posted an Instagram image of The Notorious B.I.G. lamenting that his former colleague's memory was being "watered down." 

During his Life+Times interview, DJ Khaled also explained the significance of creating an album titled Suffering from Success.

"Biggie told us 'Mo Money, 'Mo Problems,'" Khaled said. "Now when I look at anybody that's an icon or a legend in this game, I triple-respect them now. I look at Birdman, I gotta salute him. I look at Puff Dady, I gotta salute him. Jay Z, a Biggie, a 'Pac, all the great ones, I extra-salute them more than I ever did because I know they had to go through a lot of bullshit because they was on top. When you climbin' that mountain, they root for you. When you get to the top, it's a whole 'nother movie. That's why you have to respect the great ones, the ones that stay on top, because that ain't easy. It comes with a lot of bullshit. The great ones that survive all that and overcome all that are the best. We the fuckin' best."

DJ Khaled's Suffering from Success was released today (October 22). It can be streamed on HipHopDX.

    I FEEL LIKE FRIES, I FEEL LIKE A BURGER - DJ KHALED FT. RICK ROSS & FAT JOE

  • Da Realest

    Godfather 50, aka King Of NY, aka "50 Wants 2 Feed His nicca##ss" Lets remind ourselves how Godfather 50 deals with cornballs. We had this retarded Canadian white boy on youtube hating on 50's business moves,, our Godfather called his crib and spoke directly to the nerds mom After Our Godfather was done pimpin curly the mom, he spoke to the kid directly and told him he wanted the cornball to come over to NYC and meet him at the Gunit offices. The cornball came all the way from Canada and was escorted up to the top floor of the building where he met Godfather 50 and spoke with him for 1 hr about business and music. After 1hr the cornball lame nerd went from being 50cent hater to 50's biggest fan Rule 1 - Don't disrespect Godfather 50 Rule 2 - Read Rule 1 There aint no one realer than The Godfather, unlike Gayz who throws shots at civil rights leaders on songs but doesn't have the heart to see them face to face like a real boss

    I'm glad he feels successful and has made his life better, I sure am nowhere near as successful as he is, but really, does this dude really think he's at the top?? C'mon son, does anybody think hes one of the best producers out right now?. Maybe in a top 100 list he could have the 100th slot, MAYBE

      This isn't saluting Pac and Biggie, this is capitalizing off their names and pissing on their graves.

  • True2HipHop

    You can't compare that to yourself first off cause you're a Dj/Producer (Top 40 Artist) = wackness. You don't rap you just shout over the records & it's annoying. You're not on either of their caliber so don't say you feel like them or have a sense that you're like them because you just aren't plain & simple. Sure you've made accomplishments but you won't be able to make it up to their stature.

    • Jermaine

      You can't tell somebody not to feel a certain way. Khaled not going to say you can't feel what you just said in your comment because it's just how you feel. Nothing wrong with feeling a certain way.

  • Candyman

    Khaled was sent here by the Taliban and Al-Qaeda to terrorize the music indsutry and bring pain to ears everywhere!

  • honest

    SO WHAT HE SAYING IS HIP HOP FANS ARE ALL IDIOTS AND ILL PUT OUT WHATEVER I WANT BECAUSE THE MUSIC ISNT WORTH SHIT AND THE FANS ARE STUPID AS FUCK ANYWAY THEY ARE ZOMBIES AND BELIEVE WHAT I SAY. DAMN U GUYS ARE DUMB.

      Wrong, Khaled stan.

    • Jermaine

      No he's saying what he was just quoted in the article. It's clear cut in front of you what he's saying but you keep trying to make like he's saying something different. Can you read? He said nothing about fans. so who's the real dumb one? A person that can't read direct quotes is dumb to me. Stop hating!!!!!!!!!!!

    ^^^^^^ Meant to put a ???? on the end of that post to ask why some dudes come through with the off brand ish instead of just being normal. Khaled should know by now that if people don't like you then they are gonna bash your music regardless which is why critics are bashing a song that the same critics are claiming Khaled didn't create.

    These truth videos have just become Album promo videos for Elliott's friends. Anyway his album has got terrible reviews so hopefully this will be his last. His formula has had its day and has hurt hip hop enough.

    Dont even care for the guy but hes 100% correct. People need to look at their priorities & stop worshipping idols. People will curse & take God and Jesus names in vain all day then get salty when a rapper says he feels like Biggie. Great MCs but they were men. Not gods. Get over it.

  • Anonymous

    he aint do a very good job addressing the critics he just started talkin bout triple respecting and extra-saluting cats with lots of money... I still feel the same way about the song as I did before watching this and I'm sure Ma$e does too!

    • BP

      your tissue and your baby bottle is over there. quit bein a bitch cause I made sense

    • ^

      Both of y'all are idiots. The explanation is still stupid and the song is shit and disrespectful.

    • Jermaine

      "He didn't do a good job of addressing the critics". If that's the case what should he have said? Since you speak for people in the music business now, you should know how he should have addressed the critics. Explain?

    • BP

      get yourself a baby bottle and stop cryin'. his explanation made perfect sense. they literally said at the end of the song "how you gon compare yourself to them if you ain't even ready to be great" keep catchin feelings about your dead heroes if you want, but his explanation made sense

    • ^

      Hey, idiots. His explanation wasn't that good. The song is still shit and disrespectful.
