DJ Khaled Receives Hollywood Star: A couple of the biggest stars in hip-hop came out to celebrate on Monday (April the 11th), as American DJ, record executive, and record producer DJ Khaled was honored with his star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

Those who attended the ceremony included L.A. Reid, Sylvia Rhone, Steve Rifkind, Teyana Taylor, and Cool & Dre. Also present were Khaled’s wife Nicole and their two sons, Asahd and Aalam, as well as JAY-Z, Diddy, and Fat Joe.

“When I think of Khaled, I think of love,” said Fat Joe while speaking to the Hollywood Blvd. crowd. “In hip-hop for a long time, we haven’t really embraced fatherhood. Nobody has done it like Khaled. Music-wise, there’s nobody with a greater ear.”.

Diddy added,

“You’re a pioneer, an icon, a brilliant business man. But most importantly, you’re a great friend to all of us that’s here, a great father, a great husband, and one of the greatest people I’ve ever met. Khaled means forever and I want to congratulate you on something that will be here forever to mark the great work that you’ve done.”

“I want my star to represent the light, the love that shines on everybody. God put me on this earth to be a light. The room could be pitch dark and when I walk in, it’s bright,” said DJ Khaled during his acceptance speech. “This is for hip-hop. But I want to make it clear, we just getting started.”

Khaled becomes the 2,719th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and follows the growing list of hip-hop honorees including Missy Elliott, 50 CentSnoop DoggIce CubeLL Cool J, Pharrell, and more.
