Ace Hood, DJ Khaled + Birdman Cover The Source Magazine June/July Issue
Hip-hop heavyweight DJ Khaled is flanked by fellow rapper Ace Hood and Cash Money CEO Birdman on the June/July 2013 cover of The Source magazine.
On the cover, the We the Best head honcho is dressed head to toe in white and draped in gold chains. His artist Ace Hood -- who loves to go shirtless -- shows off his muscular frame in black pants and black-and-white Air Jordan sneakers. Finally, Khaled's good friend Birdman is decked out in white as well with a cigar in his hand.
In the interview, DJ Khaled compares himself to the biggest moguls in the music biz.
"What I do is the same thing your moguls do. Only I do it better," he boasts to the publication. "I make hits, and put hits out. I am We The Best music. I am the genius behind a lot of projects. A lot of No. 1 songs. I’m a f---ing genius."
As you can probably tell, DJ Khaled is not a humble guy, but he's not wrong in his assessment. The Miami producer-DJ-A&R executive probably has one of the most thorough rolodexes in the rap game. And he does have a lot of chart-topping anthems under his belt.
Meanwhile, Khaled is currently working on his next project, 'Suffering From Success.' But before he releases his album, he's going to make sure Ace Hood is straight with his fourth LP, 'Trials and Tribulations,' which hits stores July 16.
The Source magazine's June/July issue -- with Ace, Khaled and Birdman on the cover -- will arrive on newsstands June 18.
