DJ Khaled Pens Heartfelt Letter To His Fans

"Fan Luv" has been taken to a whole new level.

On Tuesday (August2), DJ Khaled took to his Facebook page to pen a heartfelt letter to the fans, commemorating the bond they've formed over the years through "Fan Luv." Life is good for the 40-year-old, with Major Key on pace to dethrone Drake's "VIEWS" and secure the number one spot on the Billboard charts this week.

The Snapchat king began the letter by thanking the fans for pushing him to be his very best, which showed on his latest album, Major Key.

"Thank you for your consistent support. For inspiring me to be the best I can possibly be. For giving me the strength it takes to go out in the world aka the jungle to bring you the best possible version of me. Fan luv over the years we have become closer as a family. Fan luv was there when I was a young DJ ripping down any club that would allow me to display my God given talent."

The 305 resident went on his future plans for music and in life.

"My goal is to spread love. My goal is to inspire the next young genius to be great. My goal is to create the best body of work that speaks to everyone."

The soon to be father also reflected on the hard work he's poured into his latest project, which released last week.

"On July 29th I released my 9th in studio album Major 🔑. It's the culmination of 25 years of blood swears and tears. And it's my best work to date. Fan luv u bring me so much joy and happiness every time i see my fans u bring my spirits up to a high level"

Khaled finished the letter as only he could, filled with sayings that have become a staple of teenage vocabulary across the nation, and a bunch of emojis sprinkled in.

Stay you Khaled, and congrats on the album! #MajorKeyAlert

Prepare Thyself: Lil Kim's New Album Will Drop In May

Lil Kim announced via social media early today (Mar. 26) that her new album will drop on May 17. The Queen Bee’s next project is called 9, and will be lead by the single “Go Awff.” In a photo of herself in a blonde wig and a Balenciaga outfit, the big news was unveiled.

Additionally, Kim wrote that a video for “Go Awff” will drop this Friday (Mar. 26). She told fans over the weekend during a performance in Atlantic City, N.J. that the album would drop within the next few months, and will feature a Rick Ross collaboration.

The number 9 bears a special significance in Kim’s life. June 9 is the day her daughter Royal Reign was born, and March 9 was the day her dear friend, the rapper The Notorious B.I.G., was killed. Additionally, this is her ninth project (five albums and four mixtapes).

This will be Kim’s first official album since 2005’s The Naked Truth, which featured the singles “Lighters Up” and “Whoa.” Since then, she’s appeared on multiple tracks from artists such as Remy Ma, Keyshia Cole and Maino, just to name a few.

Watch her announcement and listen to “Go Awff” below.

Lil Wayne's 1999 Rap Notebook Is On Sale For $250K

If you have $250,000 laying around and fancy yourself a Lil Wayne fan then you can own his rap notebook from 1999.

Weezy was about 17 years old and part of the beloved rap group the Hot Boys when he penned his lyrics for songs "We On Fire" and "I Feel."

The owner of the notebook told TMZ he found it inside a car once owned by Cash Money. As a dealership employee, he rummaged through the backseat and located the prized possession.

Photos of the notebook show water damage, which the owner said was nearly destroyed during Hurricane Katrina.

The notebook was stored in a box in his garage and when the Category 5 storm hit, he evacuated. When he returned much of his belongings were destroyed except for the book. Moments In Time will reportedly handle the sale of the rare find.

Moments In Time has sold several hip-hop artifacts. In 2017, the company sold three pages in which the beloved rapper penned the lyrics to his classic "Dear Mama." Each page priced at $25,000. The company also sold the vehicles Biggie and Pac were killed in.

Weird flex, but okay.
