Despite becoming the biggest star signed to Koch Records , Miami deejay
and Terror Squad member DJ Khaled has announced that his We The Best
Music will be a partnership with Def Jam Records .
Khaled , who gained acclaim for his 2006 album Listennn , has gone on to
become the primary deejay within the south, releasing albums filled with
routine collaborations by Lil Wayne , Rick Ross , Akon and Fat Joe .
Collectively, his two releases have sold over 500,000 units and garnered
radio play rarely seen by independent labels.
True to his way of speaking, Khaled commented on the deal. "I 'm proud
to be a member of the Def Jam family… I am extremely honored and
excited to be a partner with them in We The Best Music . I look forward
to creating great music and continuing the success. L.A. , Shakir and
Lenny S. , are you ready? I am! Let's go! "
The first artist in the deal is ACE , who appeared throughout Khaled 's
release. His information will be released by the label in coming weeks.
At press time, label representatives have indicated that the artist will
see a 2008 release.
