DJ Khaled Calls His Next Album ‘Kiss the Ring’
DJ Khaled is on to his next project after the success of his last LP ‘We the Best Forever.’ On Friday (Dec. 9), the super producer unveil a promotional video introducing his sixth full-length LP titled, ‘Kiss the Ring.’ The title is often in reference to NBA legend Michael Jordan who has six NBA Championships rings and is ‘hood slang for “show some respect.”
Respect is certainly due for DJ Khaled who had a huge 2011 hit with ‘I’m on One’ featuring Drake, Rick Ross and Lil Wayne. The song went went triple platinum and received a Best Rap/Sung Collaboration nod for the upcoming Grammy Awards in February.
DJ Khaled announced the album title in a dramatic video, directed by We the Best Music Group’s videographer Dazed One. The clip features several scenes of Khaled doing what he does best — getting audiences hyped up. Behind a backdrop of an operatic chorus, stirring violins and fiery lettering — like “YMCMB” and “A.K.A. Grammy Nominated” — the super producer blazes up the screen. It concludes with the title ‘Kiss the Ring’ with words “coming soon” appearing underneath.
Although no additional information was provided, it’s safe to assume that DJ Khaled will make another grand appearance sometime in 2012.
