Jay-Z, Diddy, Fat Joe, Teyana Taylor Turn Out for DJ Khaled’s Hollywood Walk of Fame Star Dedication Ceremony
The Miami-based producer honored for a career that has included six albums and four singles topping the charts, and four Grammy nominations.
DJ Khaled received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday (April 11) in Hollywood—Jay-Z, Fat Joe, Diddy, Teyana Taylor, L.A. Reid among others joined DJ Khaled in speaking at the 11:30 a.m. ceremony at 6212 Hollywood Blvd., next to Amoeba Music.
He thanked all of his fans, his friends, his supporters, and God for the honor.
“I wanna make one thing super clear, this star I want it to represent the light that shines on everybody,” he said. “God put me on this earth to be a light. I want everybody to take this starlight and know that it’s forever, it’s for all of us. It’s for hip-hop. We are just getting started, this is just the beginning.”
The hitmaker confidently declared that he could’ve taken the star at any time but thanked God for choosing this moment to award him with the honor.
Khaled becomes the 2,719th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
As Khaled stood alongside him in a coral-colored suit, Diddy reflected on Khaled’s “relentless” hustle and “unmatched” work ethic. “You’re a pioneer, an icon, a brilliant businessman,” he told the We the Best boss. “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.”
Diddy added, “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.”
JAY-Z didn’t speak, but he did join Diddy, Fat Joe, and Khaled’s family for a photo Opp in front of Khaled’s new star.
Khaled was emotional as he took the podium, thanking his friends, wife, and his sons. “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,” he said. “This is for hip-hop. But I want to make it clear, we just getting started.”
