DJ Khaled Shares First Chapter of His Book ‘The Keys’
DJ Khaled is about to drop his major keys at a bookstore near you. The first motivational book from the Miami DJ-turned-social media star titled The Keys is due out Nov. 22 via Crown Archetype (a subsidiary of Penguin Random House) and today (Oct. 28), Khaled shared the first chapter of the book with fans.
The first chapter is titled "Stay Away From They" and obvious discusses the proverbial "they" that Khaled often refers to in his Snapchats. For those who don't follow the "For Free" purveyor on the social media app (it's the best free entertainment you can buy), "they" are basically your haters that don't want to see you succeed in life. Khaled also touches on choosing the right friends, preserving through hard times and not to take the things you have for granted in the first chapter. Much like the texts on Khaled's famous Snapchats, the first chapter is written entirely in all capital letters. It's almost as if he's screaming his life lessons.
"YOU’RE GOING TO BE SO MUCH BETTER ONCE YOU STAY AWAY FROM “THEY,” writes Khaled. "YOU’LL FEEL LIKE YOU’RE LIVING A WHOLE NEW LIFE, A LIFE FREE OF HATE, DOUBT, ENVY, AND TRASH VIBES, AND LET ME BE THE ONE TO TELL YOU THAT THAT’S WHEN YOU CAN START WINNING. MAJOR KEY: THE UNGRATEFUL AND JEALOUS “THEY”S ARE THE MOST DANGEROUS “THEY”S OUT THERE."
Khaled has definitely been making his haters mad lately due to his recurring successes. Earlier this week, platinum-selling producer and his fiancee enjoyed one of the great personal accomplishments by becoming first-time parents. The couple welcomed a baby boy on Oct. 23 and of course Khaled Snapchatted the whole birth.
The Keys is set to feature contributions from Jay Z, Rick Ross, Puff Daddy, L.A. Reid. Lyor Cohen, and others. Read the first chapter here and feel more enlightened.
