DJ Khaled Considering Taking Over as Head of Epic Records

DJ Khaled is sitting on top of the world right now. He started the year off with a new Epic Records deal just a year after buying a 7 bedroom, 7 bathroom home in Miami and just pulled the near impossible by getting Beyonce AND Jay-Z both on a record of his. It does however seem to be paying off as he is now eyeing the top spot at Epic Records as Chairman now that L.A. Reid has been forced out based on sexual assault allegations. The timing is both perfect and the very thought of DJ Khaled as Chairman seems absolutely possible because who knows the industry and hip hop better in 2017 than DJ Khaled himself?

Page Six sources say Sony Music UK’s Jason Iley and RCA’s Tom Corson are potential candidates with pretty standard executive backgrounds but an insider said “He [DJ Khaled] was petitioning to get that job. He’s like, ‘I make more happen than anyone in the game, why would I not be considered to run the label?’”

Khaled both has the record of bringing some of the industry’s biggest names together to make hit after hit such as I’m the One with Chance the Rapper, Justin Bieber, Quavo and Lil Wayne all on one track to go Number One within its first week and he brought his name not only back into prominence after a down period but he’s known as the King of Snapchat.

Khaled has proven himself to be a winner and though he may not necessarily have the corporate experience in the industry, we’re confident that he has what it takes to make it happen and grow Epic Records to be an even more successful label.
