his music Hip Hop, he is ready to help. During an interview with Larry King, DJ Khaled explains how he is the “Quincy Jones of Hip Hop”, not visiting the Middle East in 30 years and more.
DJ Khaled has sold over 14 million singles and has contributed numerous hits. After informing Larry King that he does not rap, he does explains that he arranges the songwriters, the producers and the artists. But, he compares himself to Barry Gordy and Quincy Jones for those qualities and what he considers “doing the Khaled”:
I don’t sing, I don’t call it rap. I call it doing the Khaled. I might be on the hook, I might be on the intro. But at the end of the day it’s like how Quincy [Jones] would put together a record. Salute to Quincy Jones, icon. I’m like the Barry Gordy, the Quincy Jones of Hip Hop.
