What Does DJ Khaled Do?

DJ Khaled is a critically-acclaimed showbiz mogul with one of the biggest business empires in the industry. He was originally born Khaled Mohamed Khaled in New Orleans, Louisiana, on 26th November 1975. Sadly, there is no information about his childhood and education as he is yet to share this part of his personal life with his fans. Outside of music, DJ Khaled is the brain behind the New York Times Bestseller, The Keys. He is also known as Beat Novacane and Arab Attack among his fans.

Inside Look At DJ Khaled’s Family Background

DJ Khaled had a humble beginning; he was forced to overcome several harsh circumstances before he eventually made it to the top. The DJ is the son of Palestinian parents; his dad’s native town is Al-Mazra’a ash-Sharqiya while his mom was born in Ramallah. The couple moved to the United States, precisely to Louisiana in their 20s and began selling clothes in a local market using their van. DJ Khaled’s dad is said to have left Palestine with only $20 in his pockets.

After hustling for some time in Louisiana, the family relocated to Orlando, Florida, to start a new life. It was at this point that DJ Khaled began using his father’s garage to hone his DJ skills and also perfect his hands on a drum machine, keyboard, and other instruments his parents bought for him. He was just 13 at the time.

The hip-hop mogul’s parents later moved to New Orleans to live with a family after they ran into some financial problems with their clothing business while DJ Khaled remained in Orlando to give his music career the attention it needed. Although his parents lived many miles away from the record executive during his budding years, they were very supportive of his career and contributed to his journey to stardom.

DJ Khaled has only one brother called Alec Ledd (Alaa Khaled). He is a producer and actor best known for starring in the 2012 comedy-mystery web series Where the Bears Are, Being Bin Laden (2011), and Wait (1998). The Khaled brothers have a good relationship with each other.

All You Need To Know About His Wife Nicole Tuck

DJ Khaled has been in a blissful relationship with the only woman in his life, Nicole Tuck. It is not known exactly when and how they met but sources have it that the two got engaged in 2016 and secretly tied the knot afterward. As gathered, the couple started dating many years before the DJ even became famous.

Unlike Khaled, Nicole keeps a decently low profile both in real life and on social media. However, we gathered that she was born on December 7, 1975, and she has Palestinian ancestry. Tuck graduated from Marymount Manhattan College with a Bachelors’s degree in Fine Arts in 2003 and from Fordham University with a Master’s degree in Education in 2005.

Although DJ Khaled’s sweetheart has two degrees, she has a strong interest in fashion and even owns a fashion label as a top-notch designer. She launched her clothing line ABU (Always Be You) in 2010 but the company has since been reportedly shut down so as to allow Nicole work as her husband’s unofficial manager.

Do They Have Kids?

DJ Khaled and Nicole Tuck are blessed with two wonderful sons. Their first offspring, Asahd (Arabic for a lion) Tuck Khaled was born on 23rd October 2016. His birth process was live-streamed on Snapchat by his celebrity father which skyrocketed his popularity from birth.

Asahd has an Instagram account and has walked the red carpet at several star-studded events with his father. Tuck gave birth to their second son in the month of January 2020. Her husband announced his arrival on his social media pages but declined to reveal his name.

How Did DJ Khaled Venture into Music?

As hinted earlier, DJ Khaled began DJing and playing other musical instruments in his early teens. His career started gathering momentum during his stay in Orlando where he made only about 100 dollars a week from Djing at clubs and playing his music in local studios. Even with the little money he made from music, Mohamed was still broke to the point that he had to relocate to New Orleans to live with his parents. While there, he got a job at Odyssey Records and at Shoney’s restaurant as a busboy.

While working at the record store, DJ Khaled came in contact with New Orlean-born rappers Lil Wayne and Birdman who would become some of his first collaborators. His career got a boost one year later when he won $5,000 in a contest, which necessitated his relocation to Orlando.

DJ Khaled later moved to Miami, where he began DJing while living in his car and the house of his girlfriend’s mom. Things turned around for good for him in 1996 when he snagged a DJ gig at the radio station Mixx96 and later at the Miami-based hip-hop station 99 Jamz and Rockers Island where he played steadily on Fridays. From that point, DJ Khaled began to travel to places to perform as a DJ.

He eventually started making his own music and went on to release his first studio album titled: “Listennn… the Album” in 2006. It was followed by “We Takin’ Over” (2007) which featured notable rappers like Akon, Birdman, and Lil Wayne. DJ Khaled launched his own record label “We the Best“ in 2008 and subsequently released two more albums titled: “We Global” (2008) and “Victory” (2010).

DJ Khaled has seen great success since he earned his breakthrough in the music industry. He has released a total of eleven albums and won over 25 prestigious awards for his personal projects and the ones he collaborated with other artists.

Some of the big names he has worked with on several projects include Chance the Rapper, Drake, Terror Squad, Nipsey Hussle, Ace Hood, Birdman, Chris Brown, Ludacris, Beyoncé, Busta Rhymes, T-Pain, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Fat Joe, Jay-Z, Jeremih, Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, 21 Savage, John Legend, Trick Daddy, and Bryson Tiller.

Why Is He So Popular?

DJ Khaled, no doubt, rose to prominence across the world through his music but everything in his life changed after he joined Snapchat, as revealed in his book. The songwriter joined the social media platform in 2015 while having some rest at home from numerous road trips. His popularity began to soar after he started carrying his fans along in his daily routines and various aspects of his personal life. Through this, the record executive gradually rose to Snapchat king and influencer for the younger generation.

DJ Khaled’s fame is also tied to his lucrative side hustles with mega-brands in the country such as Bang & Olufsen headphones, acting gigs, and other ventures. He has made on-screen appearances in the following Hollywood projects, Bad Boys for Life, Spies in Disguise, Shottas, and Pitch Perfect 3.
