DJ Khaled explains how the inspiration for his upcoming album title came from his health scare in 2012
It turns out the inspiration for the title came from a doctor's appointment, Khaled revealed while talking to MTV News.
"I noticed on my beard... a big bald spot and it just kept getting bigger and bigger," Khaled said of his health scare in 2012. Khaled reluctantly went to the doctor, who, after handing Khaled a prescription, put her hand on the DJ's shoulder and said, "Son you’re suffering from success."
"It opened my mind up to say success comes with stress and happiness," Khaled explained, "So when I’m walking down, leaving the doctor’s office, driving home, I was like, ‘That’s gonna be the name of my new album: Suffering From Success."
