Dj Khaled has excelled in the music industry for over 20 years. Beginning his career in the 1990s as a radio host on Miami's 99 Jamz, Khaled skyrocketed to superstardom. As one of music's most sought-after producers, Khaled has created records for countless artists. His resume includes singles cut for Jay-Z, Beyonce, Future, Migos, Drake, and Rihanna, to name a few. Now, the husband, businessman, and Grammy award winner is conquering a new lane, thriving in the world of golf.
If you're one of Khaled's 33 million Instagram followers, you're likely familiar with his recent sports endeavors. On any given day, Khaled is seen riding around in his cart or out on the course practicing his swing. In one recent IG Reel, the 47-year-old shared that he wishes to go pro. Additionally, Khaled even plays with his own We The Best golf balls during his practice. On Wednesday, his longtime friend Sean 'Diddy' Combs gifted him a luxury golf cart to take his game to the next level.
DJ Khaled Is Taking The Sport Seriously
Diddy shared an IG Reel showing himself and Khaled dancing and rapping inside the plush chrome cart. In the caption, Diddy subsequently praised his buddy for his golf strides, writing, "Enjoy my gift to you! I had to find the flyest of the fly for my brother! This ain't no regular degular golf cart!" The thoughtful present arrived a few months after Khaled shared a video of himself getting his cart stuck and crashing it into a curb. Khaled wasn't hurt by the minor mishap.
Although golf may be a surprising pastime for Khaled, many of hip-hop's finest enjoy some time working on their downswing. Moreover, ScHoolboy Q made headlines in recent years after stepping away from music and pursuing a career in the game. He even participated in the 2022 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Snoop Dogg also enjoys this pastime in between music. As the subject of several prominent visuals, golf has long been a widely accepted sport within the rap scene. Additionally, Diddy and Mase most notably portrayed the roles of a sports announcer and golfer in the famed "Mo Money, Mo Problems" video. Hopefully, we can begin seeing even more hip-hop greats join the ranks of Tiger Woods and Charlie Sifford.
