Say what you will about DJ Khaled, but the affable mogul has cemented himself among hip-hop's elite, bridging the gap between A&R and producer like no other. With an unwavering dedication to crafting "great music" and nothing else, Khaled's particular brand of hitmaking has made him a trusted source of bangers. Given everything he's helped create, it's easy to forget that the larger-than-life figure spent his formative years as a hip-hop scholar, earning himself the right to be called "DJ" in the first place. Naturally, he's made a long list of connections throughout his journey to the top, legendary figures young and old.
