Few people on the planet earth have had as good a 2016 as DJ Khaled. He has taken his Snapchat popularity and turned it into a deal with Roc Nation, a spot on Beyonce‘s Lemonade tour, and a top five album in 2016.
Those are words I never thought I’d type, but it’s true. I never understood what Khaled’s talent was. He doesn’t make beats. He doesn’t rap. So what exactly does he do? He brings the game’s best together. The guest list for Major Key looks like an imported list of the top 15 hip-hop artists.
Everyone–and I mean everyone–from the current titans (Drake, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Big Sean, Future) to the rap vanguards (Jay-Z, Nas, Jadakiss) to the rising rookies (Kodak Black and Bryson Tiller) is on this album. If that isn’t reason enough to listen and purchase this album then congratulations you played yourself.
