The Game – “Don’t Shoot” (Feat. Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Diddy, Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Yo Gotti, Curren$y, Problem, King Pharaoh, & TGT)

That list of rappers and musicians up top is an all-star team and they've all gotten together for the 6-minute anthem "Don't Shoot" to address the shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown and the events that followed. The Game recruited everyone that appears on the song, and here's what he had to say to RollingMore »

DJ Khaled – “They Don’t Love You No More” (Feat. Jay Z, Rick Ross, Meek Mill, French Montana)

DJ Khaled has been an A-list rap fixture for the better part of a decade, even though he doesn't really do anything except yell. I have no idea how he keeps lining up big stars for his songs, but he keeps doing it, and now he's done it again. "They Don't Love You No More"… More »

DJ Khaled – “No New Friends” (Feat. Drake, Lil Wayne, & Rick Ross) Video

DJ Khaled's new posse cut single "No New Friends" reconstructs the lineup of Khaled's great 2011 single "I'm On One," and like that song, it's pretty much a Drake track with a couple of guests on it. Drake also co-directed the new "No New Friends" video along with Colin Tilley, and the clip takes place… More »

DJ Khaled – “No New Friends” (Feat. Drake, Lil Wayne & Rick Ross)

Once upon a time, DJ Khaled stumbled into taking credit for one of the best singles of 2011, when his name appeared on the left side of the hyphen on "I'm On One," the excellently twinkly and moody Drake/Lil Wayne/Rick Ross team-up. Khaled's new single "No New Friends" is a transparent attempt to recapture that… More »

DJ Khaled – “I Did It For My Dawgs” (Feat. Rick Ross, Meek Mill, French Montana, Ace Hood & Jadakiss) Video

DJ Khaled might not have too many talents in this world, but he's better than just about anyone else at lining up hard-as-fuck rappers for overblown, triumphal posse cuts like this one. Songs like this have gotten a bit more exciting since Meek Mill's rise to fame, and videos like this have gotten a bit… More »

DJ Khaled & Kanye West – “I Wish You Would”/”Cold” Video (Feat. Rick Ross & Kim Kardashian)

Hear's the visually impressive combo clip for "I Wish You Would" & "Cold," a six-minute long Hype Williams construction featuring West, Khaled and Rozay holding down an underground tunnel. Real talk, though -- is it better than the fan video with the kid rapping, a la Danny Brown's "Grown Up"/Biggie's "Sky Is The Limit"? Watch… More »

DJ Khaled – “I Wish You Would” (Feat. Kanye West & Rick Ross)

DJ Khaled remains an absolutely ridiculous and indefensible rap-universe presence, but he's still better at rounding up A-listers to perform on songs together than, arguably, anybody else on earth. His latest is "I Wish You Would," an anthemic stomp that features Rick Ross in triumphal boss-mode and Kanye West, returning to his 808s & Heartbreak/"Put… More »

DJ Khaled – “Take It To The Head” Video (Feat. Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne & Chris Brown)

He may not have any readily identifiable talents, but oft-bellowing Miami personality DJ Khaled sure is good at convincing vast numbers of rap celebrities to show up in the same room at the same time. In the video for his sparkling single "Take It To The Head," the roll call is typically vast: Rick Ross,… More »

Kanye West – “Way Too Cold” (FKA “Theraflu”) (Feat. DJ Khaled)

Last night, Funkmaster Flex debuted "Theraflu," a brand-new out-of-nowhere solo track from Kanye West. The track features DJ Khaled, and beyond his pitched-up bellowing and Flex's tags and explosions, there's a lot standing in the way of actually hearing the song. But it's a seriously strong performance, all hard snarls over a bleepy late-'90s-style beat. More »

DJ Khaled – “Take It To The Head” (Feat. Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne & Chris Brown)

For a main whose main talent seems to be unbearable self-promotional screaming, DJ Khaled sure has a long history of excellent posse cuts to his credit: "I'm On One," "All I Do Is Win," "We Takin' Over," "Holla At Me." His latest isn't up to the standards of those old songs, but it does collect… More »
