DJ Khaled Receives Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star

On Monday (4.11) DJ Khaled received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Introduced by repeat collaborator Fat Joe, with the now 46-year old rapper gushing over his longtime friend in his speech.”When I met him, he made me move out of New York to Miami.” “When I think of Khaled, I think of love. That’s the only reason why you see the heavyweights here like you see them.”

And referencing Khaled’s commitment to his wife Nicole Tuck and their two sons, Joe added “In hip-hop, for a long time, we haven’t really embraced fatherhood. Nobody has done it like Khaled. And music-wise, there’s nobody with a greater ear.”

Jay-Z, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, and Teyana Taylor were among the celebrities in attendance and in his acceptance speech, Khaled stated “There’s only one Khaled, that’s all I gotta say,” before repeating his mantra: “We the best. It’s not just me, it’s we.”

And Diddy followed up by praising Khaled’s work ethic:

“I remember that day when you told me, ‘They don’t believe me, Puff.’ I was like, ‘Khaled, what are you talking about? You’re doing great… ‘But they don’t believe me.’ I remember from that day, you worked all the way up.” “You’re a pioneer; you’re an icon and a brilliant businessman. But most importantly, you’re a great friend to all of us here… Your energy and your work ethic is unmatched, we celebrate you for everything.”
