Early Life

Khaled Mohamed was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, on November 26, 1975, to Palestinian parents who had immigrated to the United States. He has stated that he is a devout Muslim. Alec Khaled is Khaled’s brother. His parents were also artists who specialized in Arabic music. As a child, Khaled acquired an interest in rap and soul music, which his parents encouraged. He worked in a local record store, which aided in the development of his musical career.

Career

Khaled became prominent in the 1990s as a DJ on the Miami hip-hop radio station “99 Jamz”. He was hired by Terror Squad as their DJ because of his work at the radio station. After a few credits with Terror Squad, Khaled transitioned towards album curating, and in 2006 he released his first studio album “Listennn…”. Khaled went on to release “We The Best” in 2007, “We Global” in 2008, “Victory” in 2010, “We the Best Forever” in 2011, “Kiss the Ring” in 2012, “I Changed A Lot” in 2015, “Major Key” in 2016, “Grateful” in 2017, and “Father of Asahd” in 2019. His album “Khaled Khaled” was released in 2020.

One of his most successful tracks is “All I Do Is Win,” featuring Ludacris, Rick Ross, Snoop Dogg, and T-Pain. The song is the second single from Khaled’s 2010 album “Victory.”

Due to his personality, numerous Snapchat videos of Khaled discussing his “secret to success” received a lot of attention in late 2015 and early 2016. He became an internet sensation, and others gave him the name “living meme.” Today, Khaled is a highly sought-after hip-hop producer and a well-known social media celebrity.

In 2018, he opened for Demi Lovato on her “Tell Me You Love Me” Tour, which began on February 2018 in San Diego, California, and ended in July 2018. DJ Khaled released a new video for “Wish Wish,” which features Cardi B and 21 Savage, on May 21, 2019. The clip, directed by Khaled and Eif Rivera, has a lot of explosions, flames, and motocross riders, and appears to be a B-level early-2000s street-racing movie rushed into production to capitalize on the success of the first Fast and Furious. He has also worked as an actor, appearing in “Pitch Perfect 3,” “Spies in Disguise,” and “Bad Boys for Life” in 2017.

Awards

In 2008, he was named DJ of the Year at both the Ozone Awards and the BET Hip Hop Awards. In 2016, he won the ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Awards for Best R&B/Hip-Hop Song for “Hold You Down” and “How Many Times”. Chris Brown, August Alsina, Future, and Jeremiah were featured in both songs.

In 2017, he won Best R&B/Hip-Hop Song for “I Got the Keys” (with Jay-Z and Future) and Best Rap Song for “For Free” at the ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Awards (featuring Drake). He also won Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Song at the American Music Awards in 2017 for “I’m the One” (featuring Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, and Lil Wayne).

Khaled agreed to a $750,000 settlement with the Securities and Exchange Commission in November 2018 for failing to disclose payments accepted from initial coin offering issuers, including a personal $50,000 promotional payment from beleaguered cryptocurrency firm Centra Tech Inc., whose co-founders were indicted for fraud in May 2018.

“They are the SEC’s first instances involving charges for breaking restrictions on advertising investments in so-called initial coin offerings, or ICOs,” according to the SEC. Floyd Mayweather Jr., the boxer, was also involved in this incident.

Personal Life

DJ Khaled’s wife, Nicole Tuck gave birth to their first son Asahd Tuck Khaled on October 23, 2016. Khaled gained national notoriety after live-streaming the newborn baby on Snapchat. Nicole Tuck gave birth to their second son Aalam Tuck Khaled, on January 20, 2020.
