DJ Khaled has established himself as one of the top motivators in Hip Hop thanks to his inspirational encouragement about the sinister “they” — shadowy figures who don’t want you to succeed.
Fans now think they know exactly who “they” is after hearing Rick Ross’ Birdman diss track “Idols Become Rivals,” which was released today (March 17) on Rozay’s Rather You Than Me album.
Many point to the end of the track where Rozay gives a sort of outro after he finishes his third verse with “Can all producers please get paid?”
“And what hurt me the most, nigga
Is how you did my brother Khaled, nigga
Khaled was loyal to you, nigga
The pain I seen in my brother’s eyes, nigga
FaceTimin’ my nigga, nigga, he took that to the chin, nigga
That’s why my nigga blessed
That’s why my nigga Khaled blessed”
One of DJ Khaled’s taglines is “Bless Up” and his We The Best Music label used to be under the Cash Money umbrella. He shared in 2015 that he’d left the house that Birdman built.
The Miami mogul had previously stated that “they” is simply a general term for haters or those who don’t want to see others be successful.
Here’s what fans had to say after drawing conclusions that Rick Ross revealed “they” is Birdman.
So when Khaled refers to "They" he's talking about Birdman, Baby, and Stunna????
