DJ Khaled Talks Snapchat Success with ‘Nightline’

Major interview alert. DJ Khaled may have first garnered success with music, but his more recent Snapchat fame prompted ABC’s “Nightline” to profile the “Major Key” holder, who graces the latest cover of Adweek.

During the interview, the self-described “genius” said his newfound notoriety has helped open different doors. “With more success, you got everybody coming,” he explained. “Movie deals, TV shows, endorsements.”

But even Snapchat glory can’t calm his foes. “They” remain doubters, but Khaled has a response for those naysayers. “It confuses me and disappoints me when somebody says, ‘What does he do?’ My records are some of the biggest anthems ever,” he said. “What you think, they magically just appear?”

Watch Khaled go from his Finga Licking restaurant to a local Miami school during his “Nightline” segment.
