In 1998, Khaled worked as a "sidekick" for Miami rapper Luther Campbell for Campbell`s Friday night WEDR radio show The Luke Show. In his albums, Khaled usually provides "shoutouts" that assert his representation of "the ghetto" and urges people to listen, Khaled`s passion for hip hop music began at the age of 14 but he did not intend to be a rapper, instead he opted for a career as a producer in hip hop music stating, I became interested in rap music in my early teens but I didnt wanna be a rapper cuz I didnt have that kind of ethic, however I loved making beats and the first demo I made, I was like damn! I fell in love with making sounds and beats and from then on I worked very hard to get somewhere with my music. From 2004 to 2006, Khaled assisted in the production of the hip-hop albums Real Talk by Fabolous, True Story by Terror Squad, All or Nothing by Fat Joe, and Me, Myself, & I by Fat Joe.  Read More
