Jay Z Heads To Jail In DJ Khaled's 'I Got The Keys' Video

The highly-anticipated visuals have arrived.

Published June 27th

If you’re still not convinced 2016 is The Year Of DJ Khaled, he just dropped a new single and music video looking to change your mind.

Airing after The BET Awards concluded, Khaled debuted the world premiere of his music video for his new single off of his forthcoming album Major Key. The video showcases DJ Khaled proudly pulling off putting two of the most sought-after artists together on one track, further proving he's got the keys.

Recruiting the likes of Jay Z and Future for the highly anticipated single, “I Got The Keys,” Khaled has been sharing enthusiastically for the past couple of weeks just how epic he feels the collaboration is. We don't disagree with him there.

"This video is powerful,” Khaled says of his latest work. “It’s iconic. It’s amazing. First of all, Jay Z don’t shoot no videos. He barely shoots his own videos. It’s very rare that you see the icon Jay Z. Very rare."

The We The Best producer has also been teasing the cast of his new video for weeks, featuring the likes of Hov, Future, T.I.Rick RossSwizz BeatzBusta Rhymes and more. How he pulled this off in the first place is simply just another example of the power of Khaled.

The track's visuals address the tensions of the judicial system we tragically experience all too often these days, putting legendary artists up against prison guards while making a powerful statement about overcoming adversity.

While Khaled's SnapChat definitely is about to be even more lit than it was before the Awards even got started, check out the new undeniably-epic music video below.
