DJ Khaled has come a long way if we're talking about his music industry success. The New Orleans born producer kicked off his career as a radio host in Miami in the 1990s later getting a gig as the touring DJ for the hip hop group Terror Squad leading to his debut tape. From there DJ Khaled envisioned the life he wanted that later transitioned him to opening his own record label, We the Best Music Group, where the rest is history.
