DJ Khaled has made his official runway debut and ended up turning some heads as he graced the catwalk for Hugo Boss’ recent fashion show.
On Wednesday (March 15), TMZ reported that the producer bravely made his way across the Hugo Boss runway in Miami (which happened to be soaking wet), while accompanied by legendary supermodel Naomi Campbell.
Other high-profile figures sharing the runway included Pamela Anderson, Amber Valletta, Candice Swanepoel, and celebrity stylist Law Roach. Khaled later shared the experience in an Instagram post.
In addition to his entry into the modeling world, Khaled has plenty to be proud of at this moment in his life. Most recently, he confirmed that his We The Best label will partner with Def Jam in 2023.
Khaled had originally teased the announcement in February, and it turned out to be a celebratory affair as the DJ reflected back on his expansive career before officially announcing the partnership with Def Jam, a short time later.
“Looking back at my career, and thinking about when I first came out with my first album I think it was like 2005, and looking where I’m at in 2023 and I still see the same faces and the people I’m working together with is the biggest blessing in the world,” he said.
The GOD DID hitmaker also noted how some of his industry peers such as Fat Joe helped pave the way for him. “My journey, I started off at Koch Records and shout out to brother Joey Crack,” he said.
Khaled continued: “He brought me into Koch Records and we did a deal at Koch Records and he told them, ‘Look you gotta mess with this kid Khaled,’ and we ended up making history over there.”
The 47-year-old producer, also closed out the 2023 Grammys with a star-studded performance of “GOD DID” alongside JAY-Z, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, John Legend and Fridayy. Despite missing out on getting any silverware at the event, the heavyweight group held court outside the Crypto.com Arena where they brought their Grammy-nominated collaboration to life under purple street lights.
Joined by a live band and with Legend perched behind a piano, Rozay and Weezy kicked things off with their guest verses while Khaled played his familiar role of hypeman. “They ain’t want us to win! So I made sure I’m on the Grammys stage with the biggest! This is for Hip Hop! This for the streets!” he yelled triumphantly.
Channeling the Last Supper, Hov tore through his show-stealing verse in one take while sitting behind a lavish dinner table, where he was accompanied by Ross, Wayne and Khaled, as well as loyal associates “OG Juan” Perez and Emory “Vegas” Jones — both of whom he name drops in the song.
