Born Khaled Khaled (he's so nice his mom named him twice), 30, in New Orleans to Arabic parents, Khaled was the second of three children. At age fourteen his love for music and influence from his parents led him down a path that would birth one of the greatest Deejays Miami has ever seen. Fans quickly took notice of DJ Khaled's powerful style and energetic personality as he began throwing parties while a deejay on college radio. "God gave me a gift, so it's only right that I lead the way with this new style." Great energy and an undeniable voice have helped Khaled land radio gigs with Mixx 96 and 99 Jamz, but for Khaled that's just the tip of the iceberg.
