When you get as famous as DJ Khaled and you've got a self-aware sense of humor, you tend to rack up some hilarious quotes. Not one to get shy when the cameras and microphones turn on, Khaled is always going to give you a show, and a big part of it will usually involve catchphrases.
Khaled, who started out building his rep as a DJ in Florida clubs before moving on to become a respected producer, has used his charisma and sense of humor to jump into commercials, movies and priceless social media moments on his way to being a meme-able cultural staple. It's all because of who he is. He's funny, motivational and truly a person who toes the line between taking himself too seriously and being in on the joke.
His knack for snappy catchphrases came to the forefront back in 2015. That's when Khaled became a phenomenon on Snapchat, with his exploits making him seem almost like a wrestler with a bunch of platinum plaques. Khaled is both naturally funny and a skilled showman; he just knows when to turn it on. His array of catchphrases, from "Lion!" to "They dont want you to..." took him to incredible heights. Whether it was daytime TV interviews on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Wendy Williams Show or becoming part of a promotional campaign for Ciroc and appearing in the 2017 superhero film Spider-Man: Homecoming, Khaled can be seen everywhere and anywhere, and a big reason is his memorable catchphrases.
Pronouncing words incorrectly and not trying to fix them or telling you how to not play yourself, Khaled's been able to maintain his relevance whether he's dropping albums or not. He has the "it" factor, and today, XXL highlights that.
