DJ Khaled Speaks Out About Not Getting Enough Credit

“My fans expect me to be greater and keep being great.” – DJ Khaled

Rumour has it that DJ Khaled freaked out when his latest album failed to debut at #1 on Billboard. His album Father of Asahd came second to Tyler the Creator’s IGOR on the charts of Billboard. Many people went to say Khaled was being bitter and a hater for not showing credit where it was due. Khaled took his anger out on his label as he went to Epic Records to express his frustration as he blamed them for his album flopping. He also was involved in a post and delete on Instagram as he made a what everyone thinks is a shady video towards Tyler. In my opinion, Khaled is hot and has been #1 plenty of times previous it’s time that they acknowledge others in the industry for their hard work as well rather than only supporting the same well known artists. You won’t always be #1 in the game, it’s all about remaining humble and taking the extra time to perfect your craft on the next go around. I don’t think he should’ve downplayed Tyler because he deserved the #1 according to Billboard themselves. Khaled should just take his L, congratulate Tyler and keep it moving. He feels as though his label didn’t fight hard for his album sales as they should’ve. His short temper tantrums turned into him planning to sue Billboard as he feels they’ve robbed him for the #1 spot. He’s suing for a miscount of total sales and bundle deals since he knows he shouldn’t be at #2. According to PageSix, A DJ Khaled source said, “When Khaled’s team tried to appeal, Billboard refused to budge.” The source said the situation was all the more unjust because Tyler the Creator’s bundle deal figures were included in his total sales. Billboard announced on May 30th that Tyler debuted #1 with 165,000 albums sold whereas DJ Khaled came #2 with only 137,000 albums sold. Khaled had the Beyonce’ mindset of “Top two and I ain't number two”.
