DJ Khaled, ‘Suffering From Success’: Fall Music Preview 2013

Clay Patrick McBride
DJ Khaled

Release Date: Sept. 24
Label: Cash Money

Producer and hypeman extraordinaire DJ Khaled has released an album nearly every year since 2006 (2009 was an exception), each one a compilation featuring his rapper friends and a searing summer jam. This year’s was no different. Drake, Lil Wayne and Rick Ross link on lead single “No New Friends,” a top 10 hit on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Behind the boards and on the mic, Khaled is like an outspoken coach leading his squads to victory. “My voice is powerful,” he says. “It’s not just about the feature. It’s about how you put it together. I am a hitmaker.”
