DJ Khaled Recruits Lil Wayne, Chris Brown for New Album
DJ Khaled is currently prepping his first album on Cash Money Records, We the Best Forever, and he’s got big plans for the lead single. The Miami DJ has let the cat out of the bag that Lil Wayne will be one of several artists featured on the “movie”-like track, which he plans to drop in January.
“When I work with Wayne… On my records, I always got some of the most classic verses. And this verse I’ve got for my new record is… Woo!” Khaled told MTV News. “It’s one of those anthems that I do. The streets is going to embrace it on another level. It’s one of them records that when you first hear it, you’re going to be like, ‘This is what I’m talking about.’ It’s that anthem.”
Khaled also worked with Chris Brown and Keyshia Cole, both of whom appear on a motivational track. “I’ve always been a fan of Chris. This song I got with him is so inspirational. It’s something where the person holds [the torch] and runs for the Olympics,” he said of the tune.
Guests expected to make the final cut include Rick Ross, T-Pain, Birdman, Young Money, and Cee Lo Green, with whom he’s been wanting to collaborate for years. “I’ve got a special record with him,” he said. “[It’s about] never sleeping. Describing your life and my life, we out here hustling every day and we ain’t gon’ never stop.”
