Fat Joe became a trending topic after the Bronx rapper praised DJ Khaled for his musical success and concluded that he’s the “Quincy Jones of hip-hop.”
During an appearance on the Drink Champs podcast, Fat Joe gave Khaled his flowers for consistently dropping hit records with the biggest names in hip-hop.
Fat Joe’s christening of DJ Khaled, while kind, was not exactly well-received by the public.
Some Internet comments disagreed with the rapper’s comparing of Khaled to the 28 Grammy Award-winning music legend. Jones, has produced, wrote and composed a litany of hits including Michael Jackson‘s Off the Wall, Thriller and Bad studio albums.
While DJ Khaled’s chart success as an artist/producer doesn’t match that of the iconic Quincy Jones, he does hold one Grammy Award for “Higher” featuring John Legend and the late Nipsey Hussle, a number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and several other Hot 100 hits.
