DJ Khaled gets a gift from a rock legend.
DJ Khaled's "Wild Thoughts" has been one of the summer's biggest smashes and no one thinks more highly of him than the man who's sampled he used on the song's instrumental.
Guitar legend Carlos Santana, whose track "Maria Maria" inspired the groove behind "Wild Thoughts," sent the producer/DJ a special gift to thank him for inspiring those around him with his "passion for music to make the world a better place." The present, a customized guitar signed by Santana, was showcased by DJ Khaled in an Instagram video, where he continued to be outwardly grateful for his success.
