Less than 24 hours after LeBron and the Heat secured their 3rd NBA Finals appearance in as many years, it was announced today that Dade County's other "#1 Stunnas" DJ Khaled, Ace Hood and Birdman will be featured on one of two covers for the June/July issue of The Source.

"This is big for We the Best Music ... for me, big for Ace," boasts Khaled, the label's head honcho. "Dreams do come true and this is a cover I've been wanting to get on for years, before I even got in the game I always had The Source magazine and now we in the game."

Not afraid to toot his own horn, Khaled adds, “What I do is the same thing your moguls do. Only I do it better. I make hits, and put hits out. I am We the Best music. I am the genius behind a lot of projects. A lot of No. 1 songs. I’m a f---ing genius.” 

Just like the title of his pending EP, Suffering From Success, the self-proclaimed mogul has already garnered respect for his latest anthem off the album “No New Friends” featuring Drake, Rick Ross and Lil Wayne.

Fittingly, the cover features DJ Khaled and Birdman rocking the Miami standard, all-white everything, while Khaled's young gun Ace Hood shows off a chiseled physique. And, of course, all three are leaned up against a cherry-red Bugatti Veyron. 

The issue hits newsstands June 18.
