â€œBringing Khaled to Epic is a blessed reunion for me,â€ said Mr. Reid, who first signed Khaled and We The Best to Def Jam Recordings in 2008. â€œKhaled is a supremely giftedÂ artist andÂ social media guru whose music has defined hip-hop and R&B for the past decade.Â With an extremely loyal fan base radiating worldÂwide out of Miami, every new release by Khaled has now become a firestorm event and his devoted legion of fans only grows bigger by the day.

Khaledâ€™s hotly anticipated new album,Â MAJOR KEY, his first release for We The Best/Epic Records, will be available soon.
“After weeks of consideration I have made a decision on where to land the biggest brand in the game.Â A brand that has been built from the ground up. A brand that I spent my entire life building even before I gave it a name. Today I proudly announce my new partnership with LA Reid and Epic Records,â€ said DJ Khaled.
