"I get it. It's a competitive game. It's an art," Khaled said.
Recently, DJ Khaled headed over to the Los Angeles to sit down with DJ Semtex for BBC Radio 1Xtra.
Among other things, the veteran producer touched on his work with the biggest names in the industry and of course his most current body of work, Grateful.
One of the lines from Drizzy stirred up a bit of speculation at the time as it was seen as a jab at JAY-Z and Kanye West's Watch The Throne collab.
"Hate these f*cking allegations/I’m just feeling like the throne is for the taking/Watch me take it."
"How do you navigate situations with artists as far as subliminals?" DJ Semtex asked. "Because there are a couple of artists...you know. It's not really dissing, but it's like jabbing. How was it when you first heard what Drake said on 'I'm on One?'"
"Everybody knows working with me that I'm not about no diss records," DJ KHaled began. "So, that's not happening. But, if somebody throws subliminals, I get it. It's a competitive game. It's an art. If it's subliminal then it's subliminal. You can't control all the subliminals."
“Sometimes there’ll be lyrics that go in the track, and I don’t catch it until the record comes out,” he said. “Sometimes I’m so excited to get the verse, and I don’t realize it’ll be a subliminal in there. At the end of the day, I get it. We all do it in a certain way.”
