DJ Khaled is known for producing some of hip-hop’s biggest hits with artists like Drake, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, and Kanye West—but now, he’ll also forever be known as the man who single-handedly brought the key emoji to life. The DJ and producer has been taking over the Snapchat world one 10-second video at a time, inviting viewers to ride with him through a key-filled “journey of more success.” Thanks to his motivational mantras and star-studded stories, Khaled (username: djkhaled305) has quickly developed a rabid fan following on the app—and he’s not slowing down anytime soon.
