DJ Khaled has one of the biggest phone books in hip-hop, and is determined to prove it.
On Kiss the Ring, the former Terror Squad DJ enlists Kanye West, Rick Ross, Chris Brown, Kendrick Lamar, B.I.G. Krit, Wiz Khalifa, T.I., Future, Nicki Minaj, Hit-Boy, Lil Wayne, Meek Mill, Mike Will, Nas, Scarface and Mavado, and that – genuinely – is only half of it. Kiss the Ring will be Khaled’s sixth album in total, and his second since signing to seminal Southern label (and, you know, now home of Limp Bizkit) Cash Money. It’s expected to see release on August 21, via Exclaim.
