While DJ Khaled has been repping as hard as humanly possible for We The Best over the last few years, the imprint has thus far been living underneath Cash Money as an imprint. However, the always-entertaining DJ revealed in an interview with the Breakfast Club today that his official ties to the label are no more.
"I'm not signed to Cash Money at all," he said. "It's not like I'm here to promote that I've been off. No, I'm not that type of person.
Of course, he maintained that he was still on good terms with the whole team, and that his departure was simply a business decision. "Lil Wayne and Birdman, that's family," he affirmed. "It's still 'We the Best.' Nothing negative, everything is beautiful."
As far as the tension between Wayne and Birdman, The DJ is not taking sides. "Lil Wayne, that's my brother, Birdman, that's family. And at the end of the day, it's not my business, and I do pray for greatness and everything works out," he shared. "It's not my business and at the end of the day, those two people know who I am, and I don't get involved."
Releasing his new single today, Khaled shared a statement announcing his new partnership with Sony. "It's a new chapter of more success," read the press release. "WTB prides itself on quality and longevity and alongside Sony, WE THE BEST is poised to build a legacy of putting out number ones and breaking more superstar artists."
