Success is taking its toll on DJ Khaled. After proclaiming We the Best Forever and making his haters Kiss the Ring, the Cash Money DJ has come up with a bold title for his seventh album, Suffering From Success.
In a video trailer, he reflects on his achievements by showing off his plaques, awards, and magazine covers. He later sits down with MTV’s Sway Calloway and reveals how a trip to the doctor inspired the new title.
After becoming concerned about a bald spot that was developing on his beard, he finally paid a visit to the doctor. During the 45-minute session, he was told that he was “suffering from success.”
“I looked at [the doctor] and I was like, ‘That might have been the realest thing you could tell me and it opened my mind up to say, ‘Success comes with stress and happiness,'” he said.
When he left the doctor’s office, it dawned on him to name the album Suffering From Success. The star-studded set is due later this year.
Khaled’s latest album Kiss the Ring debuted at No. 4 in August and spawned the hit singles “Take It to the Head” and “I Wish You Would” featuring Kanye West and Rick Ross.
