Props to DJ Khaled for picking such a subdued beat to go on his next record. Not that he even made it, but he probably chose it at least, right? RIGHT? Not one second of this sounds like riding a speed boat made out of Ace Hood promos with Rick Ross’ personal dolphin collection trailing the Ace Hood boat, which is actually a pretty big deal. We didn't think there was any forward movement built into the concept of DJ Khaled—just empty triumph 24 hours a day, piling as many people as possible into the studio to scream-rap about being the best. But here it is: Drake raps about being young, Lil Wayne mentions dudes that have to wait for the bus and Ross sounds like he's rapping inside an echo chamber for some reason.
