The walking, talking meme known as DJ Khaled is doing well for himself. He’s got the hits (including the recently platinum-certified “For Free” with Drake), a much-followed Snapchat account, and has even landed himself some commercials. Khaled is undoubtedly a titan of hip-hop curation—and soon he’ll share the secrets to his success.
While he’s still fresh off of his latest album, July’s Major Key, Khaled is prepping the release of a book called (what else?) The Keys. Due out November 22 via Crown Publishing Group, the upcoming title will offer stories from Khaled’s life and invaluable pointers. A few examples, per Amazon: “Stay away from They,” “Don’t ever play yourself,” “Secure the bag,” and, of course, “Win, win, win no matter what.”
Pre-orders of The Keys are available through Amazon right now.
Update (5:25p.m. ET): The cover for the book has been released as well as a list of guest writers via DJ Khaled’s instagram. The guests providing “mogul talk” will include Jay Z, Puff Daddy, LA Reid, Lyor Cohen, Arianna Huffington, and many more.
“This book will help you follow your vision as long as you have passion, dedication, blood, sweat and tears, and especially ignore when THEY try to bring you down,” Khaled writes, before noting yet another major key: “I wish I had this book when I was coming up.” Check out the cover and book descriptions below.
Pre-Order’s are also available through the book’s website here.
