DJ Khaled's getting by with a little help from his friends. A lot of them. The Miami deejay--whose runs the helm of a popular radio show on South Florida's urban-formatted WEDR--enlists a gaping host of collaborators on this follow-up to his 2006 debut, Listennn... the Album. His guests include Akon, Lil Wayne, Fat Joe, T.I., Birdman, and Rick Ross, and that's just on lead single "We Takin' Over." Elsewhere, Young Jeezy and Juelz Santana drop in ("Brown Paper Bag"), as do Trick Daddy ("I'm So Hood"), Ja Rule ("New York"), and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony ("The Originators"). Even Jadakiss and The Game drop by for the ironically uplifting "I'm From the Ghetto," complete with proud children's chorus. Along the way, Khaled serves up alternating plates of melodramatic bass, happy-go-lucky piano riffs ("Before the Solution"), and Dade-county shout-outs. With its assortment of producers and often unwisely chosen song sequence, We the Best's missteps abound, but the album collects enough sticky beats and hooks to kept the heat cranked up like a proper night out in the 305. --Jason Kirk

Biography

There's an old saying—Rome wasn't built in a day.

By the same token, DJ Khaled's empire wasn't constructed overnight either. Its foundation lies embedded in his tireless work ethic, perceptive vision, spirited hustle, and ability to adapt. Since first entering a radio booth in 1998, he went from a mainstay on Florida airwaves to a Grammy Award-Nominated ... Read more in Amazon's DJ Khaled Store

A very annoying, fake, and phony character..
mayorgl
While Khaled assembles an all star cast of emcees and producers(mostly Southern), a lot of the work on the album just doesn't seem up to par of most of the artists.
Pablo
If they decided to actually make a track, rather than make an advertisement with beats behind it, then maybe this album could actually have some value.

Usually when an artist releases a new album within a year of their previous album, the result feels like a hack job. But DJ Khaled's latest album We the Best is better than I expected.

By now, I'm sure everyone's familiar with "We Takin' Over" (but isn't T.I. rapping the exact same way he was rapping in Justin Timberlake's "My Love"?). Anyway, there are still better songs than that, like Beanie Sigel's "Before the Solution" and Bone's aptly titled "The Originators". The best track, however, would have to be "Hit Them Up" by Bun-B and Paul Wall.

But there are more cons than pros, hence the three-star rating. As dope as the chorus to Birdman and Lil' Wayne's "S on My Chest" is, I can't say the same about the verses. And there are a few songs featuring Trick Daddy, and although HE sounds dope, I can't say the same for the rest of the featured rappers, as especially shown on "I'm So Hood". "Bitch I'm from Dade County" features the usually wack Rick Ross as well as producer Dre (of Cool & Dre), who STILL hasn't learned that he isn't a rapper. Another mistake is the obligatory song for the kiddies, "I'm from the Ghetto", featuring the Game (showcasing yet another name-dropping verse) and Jadakiss. Speaking of Kiss, his collabo with Fat Joe and Ja Rule, "New York" (the basis for 50 Cent's "Piggy Bank"), is at least two years old, so why is it even here?

Another thing is, well, I understand that Khaled is a DJ, but he DOES spend a little too much time talking and doing his usual shout-outs (although he isn't as annoying as Clue -- by the way, where IS he?). We the Best will easily rock a party, but as I often say, B.I.F.

Anthony Rupert

P.S. One thing that's always bothered me: people get mad at Latin singers like Jennifer Lopez when they use the "n" word, but how come they don't get mad at Latin RAPPERS like Fat Joe for doing the same thing? (And how about Khaled himself when HE does it, and he's Palestinian?)

"DJ" Khaled's sophomore effort is pretty easy to break down. Dude is trying too hard to come off hard and it's having the opposite effect on him. He looks more and more lame after every track. It's albums like this that make me say that rap is a lot like pro wrestling -- exaggerated and fake. "Brown Paper Bag" features Young Jeezy, Juelz Santana, Rick Ross, Fat Joe, Lil' Wayne & Dre (of Cool & Dre) on what is easily the corniest song of '07. I mean, have you ever seen or heard a guy trying so hard to prove how hard they are that they end up sounding or looking like a clown? Well that song, and so many of the other tracks on this album are like that. That's what makes this album so silly. Some will say I'm hating on the south, but this album could've come from Canada and it would've still been terrible. I'm still on my crusade to have Rick Ross placed in front of a firing squad because he's been garbage from day one. He alone is responsible for 3 or 4 songs going from "okay" to "doo doo" and he almost ruined "We Takin' Over". Anything Rick Ross doesn't destroy gets finished off by Baby aka Birdman. Him and Ross manage to soil too many songs to make purchasing this a good idea. It would also help a lot if Khaled would quit screaming "we the best" on every track. I'm not talking like once or twice either. He starts almost every song off with it and there are tracks where he says it at least 10 times. Another gripe of mine is that the large number of guests seems like overkill. Again, he's trying too hard.

The best songs on the album are the ones where Khaled abandons the formula and tries something different. Despite a hit and miss hook and Khaled's constant yapping, I found "Before The Solution" quite enjoyable after hearing Beanie Sigel unload over some dope production.

I was introduced to DJ Khaled when I looked in the liner notes of the CD that he released last year entitled "Listenn! The Album". It was there when I found out that he was also known as Beat Novacane, who produced tracks on various Fat Joe releases. "Listenn! The Album" was basically a mixtape that DJ Khaled released through Koch Records. However, he only produced 3 out of 17 tracks and one of those were the "Intro". The CD was driven by the lead single, "Holla At Me Baby" which featured Lil Wayne, Paul Wall, Rick Ross, Fat Joe & Pitbull, "Problem" which featured Beanie Sigel and Jadakiss and was one of the tracks that DJ Khaled actually produced, "Grammy Family" which featured Kanye West, Consequence and John Legend and "Born And Raised" which featured Trick Daddy, Rick Ross & Pitbull. There were other tracks that you could listen to other than these 4, but they just weren't as memorable or you had tracks where the artists were good artists they just didn't bring their "A" game to the tracks.

In January, yeah that's right, January I heard the track "We Takin' Over". It featured TI, Akon, Rick Ross, Fat Joe, Birdman and Lil Wayne. All of these artists, with the exception of Akon, were featured on Fat Joe's remix to "Make It Rain", so that is probably right around the same time when they made this track. Danja, who has co-produced pretty much anything Timbaland has worked on lately, produced the track which will still end up being the rap track for the summer unless you want to pop, lock and drop it for 3 months.

DJ Khaled's 2nd CD is entitled "We The Best" but it's pretty much "Listenn! The Album Volume 2". You get the same artists: Rick Ross, who delivers a decent intro this time around, Trick Daddy, Lil Wayne, Fat Joe, Trina, Styles P.

"Brown Paper Bag" with Lil Wayne, Jeezy, Rick Ross, etc. Will Blow Ya Mind
K. Mitchell, DJ Khaled is a member of TS so that would explain why Fat Joe would be on some songs. Fat Joe is the supposed leader of Terror Squad so if DJ Khaled is releasing a CD Fat Joe is going to be on a few tracks.
