DJ Khaled - We The Best Forever

DJ Khaled? Another dance review? No silly! DJ Khaled is basically a glorified talent manager that people consider to be an artist. Oh wait, did I give my opinion too quickly? I'm basing most of my opinion that nearly every Khaled track I've ever heard, virtually all sound the same, contain the same rappers for cameos and rarely actually contain DJ Khaled doing anything. He gets the DJ label because he's an actual radio DJ down in Miami. Which enters into his connection with Rick Ross - who's also based out of Miami. His records are now connected with Cash Money - which explains the fusion with Drake and Weezy nowadays. This is Khaled's fifth studio album - all coming in the last 5 years. I have to say in general though, there are a couple tracks on this record that I enjoy substantially more than other Khaled singles. Take track one for example. 'I'm On One' is much different than the typical "hype up" style track I've heard from him in the past. A really laid back track with real raps, not just yelling. There are a few of those tracks on this album of course, but they weren't all initial singles...which is nice. Once you get to track two, it gets back to that overhyped, T-Pain auto-tuning his way into a track that's just nonsense. The remix is MUCH better, and I'd actually recommend that to you guys. Otherwise, some nice cameos by Jeezy and B.o.B, and overall a record that is virtually listenable. Still by no means a rap record for the ages - but all in all better than I was expecting. If it wasn't for all the sick collabos, I think it'd be virtual garbage.

3 out of 5 stars


  1. This is about what I expected you to say. I don't mean to stereotype you or anything but, I know you know your music. I feel the same way about it.

  2. The only positive is when the collaborations are all so great, they form a cool new song. But DJ Khaled himself typically has nothing to do with it.

    I don't know...seems like I could be a famous rapper then.
