DJ Khaled was honored Monday with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and his friends Fat Joe, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Jay-Z were there to celebrate.
“This right here, my star, I want my star to represent the light, the love that shines on everybody,” DJ Khaled told the crowd at the ceremony at 6212 Hollywood Blvd., next to Amoeba Music.
“I’ve seen his journey up close and personal. I’ve seen his relentlessness. His journey is an inspiration to every artist, every upcoming artist, every entrepreneur, every hustler around the world — to show us all that it can happen,” Combs said on stage with DJ Khaled by his side.
The record producer and executive was honored with the 2,719th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which is put on by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.
The Grammy-winning artist, 46, got his start creating music out of his home in Orlando as a teenager before co-hosting a Miami radio program on WEDR-FM (99.9) in 1998 with Luther Campbell.
His debut album “Listennn… the Album”’ was released in 2006, reaching #3 on Billboard’s rap and R&B/hip-hop charts. Since then, he has had multiple chart-topping albums and singles including “I’m the One” and “Wild Thoughts.”
DJ Khaled’s most recent Grammy win was in 2020 for the best rap/sung performance for “Higher,” which featured vocals by Nipsey Hussle and John Legend on the piano.
