DJ Khaled Announces "Major Key" Album, New Deal With Epic Records

He's got "another one."

Published April 11, 2016

A lot’s been going right for DJ Khaled recently. Jay Z signed on with the Miami hitmaker in a management capacity last month. And just last week, Future posted a pic with Khaled which is believed to be in connection with the duo’s rumored collaborative track with Jay.

Now, the future really seems firm for the Snapchat king as he announced a new deal with Epic Records and album he’s calling Major Key (no surprise).

Epic will serve as the parent company of Khaled’s We The Best label while he’ll be able to do what he needs to do on the solo tip. While there’s no release date set in stone publicly for Major Key the video Khaled posted says it will “soon come.” He also says in the caption of the post that he’s looking for new talent, so rappers, singers, producers, get your mixtapes together!
